Using Your IndieCard Widget: 4 Simple Steps

Step 1: Login to your Bandsonabudget.com account at BandsOnABudget.com/login. On the right hand column of your customer account dashboard you will see a link for your IndieCard campaigns. Click on your IndieCard Campaign you wish to embed. For this example we are going to select the "Austin 2009 Digital Download Sampler"

Step 2: Once you have clicked into the widget you will be on the IndieCard campaign view. Since we are logged in you will be able to see additional features such as the administration panel as well as the widget code. From here we care going to select all the text in the widget and copy it to your clipboard. To copy, highlight the text and either select File-Edit-Copy or hit Command-C (Ctrl-C on a PC).

Step 3: Once you have copied the widget code to your clipboard open up your blog, website, or other site you want to place the widget. Select the area where you want to paste the code here using either File-Edit-Paste or Command-V (Ctrl-V on a PC). Note: the widget uses something called an Iframe and will not work on Myspace or Facebook due to restrictions on their end.

Step 4: Your widget will now have embedded the widget into your third party sites allowing fans to enter the code on their IndieCard! You can use the code "austin2009" to see the working widget below.
