Can I add a daily Sudoku puzzle to my blog?
I have been trying to jazz up my weblog in various ways and have decided that it would be extraordinarily cool to add a daily sudoku puzzle. Problem is, I have zero programming ability. Is there any way to do this?
In fact there is, through Google Gadgets. There are hundreds of 'em, including two Sudoku puzzles. Let's pick one and I'll add it here to this blog entry so you can see just how easy it is:
Not too scary yet, is it? Now click on "Add to your webpage" and you'll see that you can actually customize it a bit, which is really nice:
I'll leave all the defaults but you can spend some time fiddling with these settings. If you do make changes, make sure that you click on the "Preview Changes" button to see how they'll work. Some of them are instantly applied but it can be deceptive!
Finally, click on the "Get the Code" button and a little additional pane will open up on the bottom of the page, like this:
Now just copy and paste the code into the appropriate spot on your Web page and you'll suddenly have a Sudoku puzzle just like this:
(that's a live puzzle: try it!)
Hope that helps you get going with Google Gadgets. THere are tons of 'em and it's really fun to look at what you can add to your Web page, blog or even social networking site profile.
