My Skribit plug-in doesn't do anything

I added Skribit to my Wordpress blog. It appears as text in the right column. When I click the text, nothing happens. How do I make this into something functional.

Also, I've been looking for instructions on how to install it as a tab on the edge of the page. Can you point me to detailed instructions?

Thanks.

    Hi, it appears the widget code is in the blog code field, instead of the blog code. A very understandable misunderstanding :) The next version of our WordPress plugin will be more user-friendly. In the Skribit Menu in the Admin section, just enter your blog code (in your case, it's 402940ceb7f2325f100a9e76da849179 ) instead of the embed code.

    As for the Suggestions Tab, this is not currently possible with the WordPress plugin and can only be installed manually by copying and pasting our embed code into the your site's theme. The code for that Suggestions Tab for you and the customizer for it can be found on Manage -> "Setup and Customize" -> Suggestions Tab: http://skribit.com/widgets/point2agen...

    Sorry about the confusion and let me know if you have any other concerns,
    Paul

  • Paul, can you be more specific about which template page to add the tab code snippet to? I don't see a page called wp_template.php anywhere. The only page I've found called 'template' is the Thesis custom-template.php page, and that page says:

    <?php
    /**
    * Template Name: Custom Template
    *
    * A custom template framework for creating pages with wholly arbitrary layouts.
    * DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE. Instead, use the thesis_hook_custom_template() hook
    * to specify the contents of div#content_box. Be sure specify which page should
    * receive which code by dividing your action using the is_page() conditional tag.
    *
    * @package Thesis
    */

    thesis_html_framework();

  • Ah I just meant your site's theme in general, not any particular file. Usually this is done in a header.php type file but Thesis is a different beast entirely. Fortunately I run Thesis on my own site so I'm familiar with it. You'll have to open custom_functions.php in the custom folder. Go to skribit and customize the Suggestions Tab colors, location and so on how you like, then copy the code (it is important to customize first as the code changes). Then go to the custom_functions.php. I'm not sure what you already have there but you will need to add another section. Here's what the entire file could look if you had nothing else:
