Updates to the Ranker Widget

Wickey, Wickey Widget! Welcome to The Ranker Widget 2.0. With the Ranker Widget, publishers can use Ranker’s tools to build unique, votable lists and publish them on their site. To date, over 1,600 third party websites have used Ranker’s widget to engage with their readers. Based on feedback from our users, we’ve just released an updated version that has some nifty new features.

What’s new?

1. Increased Options for Customization. There are a ton of new options for adjusting the look and feel of your widget. You can find customization options in the Size, Header, List and Footer tabs of the Customize panel.

Size.
Width: Choose one of three standard widths or write in your own custom width.

Height: Decide how many rows you would like to display at once. If you choose to display more rows than the amount of items on your list, they will all display at once.

Header.
You now have the option to show the list image, username and list criteria to your poll.

2. Social Share Buttons: Allow users to share your poll on through email, Facebook, Twitter and Google+ right on your site.

3. New List Stats Button: This new tab shows the number of voters, votes and items on your list. It also lists any reranks of your list by your users right there on your widget.

4. Users can more easily add new items to your list. If you’d like your readers to be able to add new items to a list in addition to voting on the items that are already there, you’re in luck. The new widget allows users to type in new list items right there at the bottom of your list.
