There is some forums based on vbulletin where HTML code are not allowed. Instead flash it is allowed.

It would be great if you could make a flash version of the widget.

Thanks

Multiple rows and colums is now supported. Check out the tutorial. Just use rows=n&cols=m. For now n,m need to be less than 5.

I can't wait to try this out.

I have been waiting for a features to help integrate my Shapeways shop into other web pages so this is a very exciting innovation.

Thanks to Peter and the rest of the Shapeways team for making it happen!

Hoi Peter,

The widget is getting very snazzy Smile

Is the section part live already ? How does it work?
shopcat=? or section=?

Cheers,

Stijn

Ps. Any chance of changing the shop and section pages to incorporate the widget interface ? (scrolling through products without page reloads is awesome!)

Hi Stijn, you need to use shopcat=SHOPSECTIONNAME

<iframe frameborder="0" style=" border:1px solid #c0c0c0; height:182px; width:628px;" src="http://www.shapeways.com/widget/include.php?shop=YOURSHOPNAME&style=light&shopcat=bestdesigns">

Yeah! it seems to be doing sections now Smile

But I still see a lot of undefined entries :
http://blog.virtox.net/virtox-shop/

Also, is it me/my browser, or is the text a tiny bit too large?

Anyways, great work!
Should you need any programming/testing help, just drop me a line Smile

The shop section side of things shows models that are newly added to the section, but not exsisting models in that category Sad

[edit]

Also adds...
The shop widget shows a 'starting at' price on mouseover the image, trouble is though that price is the maximum (i.e. Silver Glossy) if there are no plastic materials made available for that model.
To see what I mean, visit http://www.stop4stuff.com/shapeways/ and look at the bottom four items

Ok guys, fixed a bug on the sections. If a model is available in multiple sections that should work better now.

Will have a look at the pricing comment later today

Pricing looks ok now that silver has been pulled. (was confused for a bit as the pricing was changing whilst I was looking)

Can you fix the multiple sections thing in actual shop on-this-website-sections too please.

Updated. If incomplete set than the space is now to the right. Also pager buttons are not present when not needed. Fixed page numbering bug.

shop4stuff, perhaps use this table for sizing of your iframes, because in chrome I get scroll bars.

cols/rows	width	height	if cols=1
1	         168 	 176	height +12
2	         320 	 320
3	         474	 464
4	         628	 608

Hi Stijn, you need to use shopcat=SHOPSECTIONNAME

<iframe frameborder="0" style=" border:1px solid #c0c0c0; height:182px; width:628px;" src="http://www.shapeways.com/widget/include.php?shop=YOURSHOPNAME&style=light&shopcat=bestdesigns">
</iframe>



Here's a bonus with the shop widget 'as-is'...
insert name="whatever-name-you-choose" into the Iframe html tag and then use target="whatever-name-you-choose" in conjuction with the full URL in the A (anchor/link) tag for your shop section and you can have your shop sections load up in a click on the same page.

For Pete's example above, the code might be;
<iframe name="whatever-name-you-choose" frameborder="0" style=" border:1px solid #c0c0c0; height:182px; width:628px;" src="http://www.shapeways.com/widget/include.php?shop=YOURSHOPNAME&style=light&shopcat=bestdesigns">
</iframe>
<a href="http://www.shapeways.com/widget/include.php?shop=YOURSHOPNAME&style=light&shopcat=moredesigns" target="whatever-name-you-choose">More designs</a>


For a tacky, but working example, see http://www.stop4stuff.com/shapeways (please feel free to view the source code to re-work it as you see fit)

I got it working on my home page!

I noticed that the tutorial is missing the "</iframe>" at the end, which results in the rest of the web page not being shown.

Hi stop4stuff, like it a lot! Great idea.

Nice to see the widget being used in "the wild". Keep the examples coming (and by the way the feature requests!)

I just noticed something else, might not be too important but could be confusing. The shop widget shows 'starting at' prices for items that are show only.

And a little additional feature request, would it be possible that we could add a small amount of text to be put into the 'onmouseover'/image description please?

cheers,
Paul

Currently we do not have a flash version planned, also due to the fact we do not have a flash expert around. If there is anyone who can help, let me know.

The tutorial is still missing an </iframe>. This messes up anyone who simply cuts and pastes the code. It is there in the second and third examples, but not in the first one ...

Has anyone tried the widget on a wordpress.COM site - not wordpress.ORG which was the recent addition?

I don't quite know if it was something I did, or if the new inventory manger messed things up, but my shop widget seems to be broke for just one category.

Firstly I went through all my models with the new inventory manger to check the materials were correct, some eren't so I changed them and saved, then I tried to rearrange the model order, but this is too slow, one spot at a time, I cancelled and went to the od manager.

I rearanged the order of my models, added some new shop categories, added models to the relevent categories (some are in upto three categories) and went to check out the changes... http://www.stop4stuff.com/shapeways/

There's a gap and a dead image holder, but that only appears in the all items (default if you leave out the shopcat bit in the link) and New Releases categories.

The same can also be seen in my blog at http://stop4stuff.blogspot.com/

Any ideas?

That's strange behavior on the part of our widget. I'm going to pass the issue along to my QA team to see what we can do about it.

@Stop4Stuff:

How'd you manage to get the widget to show up in your Blogger? Maybe it's that I haven't used HTML in a while, maybe that it's just late, but I can't seem to figure out where to put the code to get it to work.

This widget is great! I'm excited to use it. I see some small bugs/improvements that could be made to the widget for my own site: http://www.shapeways.com/widget/include.php?shop=glyphobet&a mp;a mp;style=light&rows=4


  • There's a gap between the first item and the second one, and the second item is just a broken image that links to the nonexistent page "http://www.shapeways.com/widget/Heart%20and%20Diamond" . That's part of the title for the first item, which makes me think this might be an issue escaping the title of the first item.
  • The item titles are just chopped off if they're too long. There's no indication that you're only seeing part of the item title. There should be a "..." if the item title has been truncated.
  • The tooltip for the "Spade" model says "Available from Shapeways starting at $undefined"
  • The tooltip for the "Mathematician's Dice" model includes a price of "$7.99" even though that model is no longer for sale.
  • The tooltip for the "The Triangles of" lists a price of "$13.9" which, although technically correct, is weird because dollars (and many other currencies) are normally listed with two decimal points. Some of the other widgets have this issue too.


The blank space/missing image is really the only one stopping me from using the widget.

Is there anyone @shapeways still working on improving the widget for shop embedding ?

it works well but i dont find it as attractive as the shop looks on shapeways.com as you can see on FabMeJewelry.com
and when they click on a product they're sent to shapeways.com

I know there is the Shapeways API now but i really don't understand how to use it, so a API template for full shop embed in html would be great !
