Adding Wowhead mouseovers to Blogger

After banging my head on this for a couple hours last night, it just occured to me now that in fact it is very easy to do. All of the guides I saw seemed to be for slightly older versions of Blogger or the Beta version.

Anywho, here's what you do.

1) Cut a hole in the box  Go to the layout tab

2) Open a new "Gadget" and select from the basic section "HTML/JavaScript"

3) Paste this code from Wowhead

4) Close it and and then every time you link to wowhead you get the mouseovers.

par example = Grime-encrusted Object (My favourite item for itemlink innuendo)

There's some other nifty tools on that Wowhead page which I'd wholeheartedly advise you to check out.

  1. i don't care this aint the current post. Suweet!

  2. Thank you very much for posting this. It's actually quite simple to set up but I couldn't find a clear explanation. I just wish wordpress would allow us to do this too.
