Quick note about a few new screencasts to go over the latest changes to the widget designer:
Updated widget designer part 1:
Updated widget designer part 2:
Updated widget designer part 3:
(The end of Part 3 references a screencast about service rollover, but that is not updated yet. The earlier version is accurate except that it shows older-style code. The concepts are still very sound: service rollover screencast)
New libraryh3lp admins will find these useful, and experienced admins may find them helpful too, especially Part 2.
Soon, we hope to have a screencast for experienced admins that will succinctly describe the key changes in the widget designer and resulting code, which looks pretty different now than it did before. But for now, here are a few points:
- Your existing code should be backwards compatible, so you don't need to change anything.
- The biggie: all of your chat code (not just things like widget skins) can be centrally stored in the libraryh3lp admin site now, if you want to do so. This is especially helpful for those who do not have access to edit the web pages housing all of their chat widgets. You can update your code on the admin site now, once you have the new-style code in place.
