PressDisplay the top newspaper widget on iGoogle

Hello everyone

Another cool feature announcement!  Have you discovered the PressDisplay slideshow widget on iGoogle?  Well, if you haven’t, I’m going to share it with you here so you can then go and try it yourself.

First, get yourself a Google account and go to your iGoogle home page.  Here’s what mine looked like when I was just getting started:

iGoogle Home Page

Now click on the “Add stuff” link up on the top right of the screen and you’ll see the “widget gallery” available to you from Google – it is just full of great little widgets to customize your page.

Now do a search for “newspapers” on that page and voila…you’ll see the PressDisplay widget right on the top (hey….we beat the The Washington Post and NYT!) 🙂

Now…just click on “Add it now” and go back to your home page.  You’ll have the scrolling thumbnails of all of our 500+ publications in the top left corner.

Just click on one of the thumbnails as they scroll by and it will open PressDisplay.com with that publication, ready for you to enjoy.

One last little thing…if you want to customize the scrolling widget, you can change it to only show publications in your selected language or country.  You can even change the speed at which the papers roll by.   Just click on the little down arrow on the top right of the widget and select “edit” and choose your newspapers.

I hope you will try this feature.  Let me know what you think!

      A good question. Thanks! One of our great support people found the answer for me for this one. You can add this widget to your website here.

      Give it a try and let me know what you think.
      Cheers
