    I searched and found a couple things, but it seems there is still no widget for wordpress. Is this correct?

      I do not know if there is a widget or not but you can embed RA data into wordpress.  See my blog as an example.

        I love that!  Is there a tutorial somewhere?  Does it only work for a personal URL/wordpress blog or will it work for a ---.wordpress.com blog?  Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.

          Stacy,

           

          I haven't used my wordpress.com account in some time, but I'm pretty sure there is a ban on javascript in their widgets that prevents the RA code from being embedded.  Wordpress.org wouldn't have the same limitations.

            Very interesting!  So wordpress.com and wordpress.org are two different things?

              Wordpress.com blogs are hosted by wordpress.  To help prevent malicious code, they limit what you're able to do with their templates.

               

              Wordpress.org blogs are only using the wordpress software on your own domain.  Since you don't use Wordpress' server/bandwidth, they have less restriction and you have more customization and flexibility.

                  Yea, wordpress.com won't allow it because of what others have said above. I ended up switching my blog over to blogspot for that reason. They allow it. I like having my recent workouts and total mileage on my blog, it's nice to have that info right there.

                    Is everything the same for blogger?

                      Blogspot/Blogger allows it.

                       

                      Here is my link to my blog. The RA data is on the left side (just started).

                        Thanks, Rob.  Looks like you're making some good progress, too.

                          Yea, if you just add an HTML gadget to your blogspot blog, you just place the script that RA gives you under the Tools tab. It seems to work just fine, and update automatically.
