June 11th – A Week With Google Sites

Following up from the June 9th post on the “Insert” options – today we’ll look at Google Gadgets.

June 11th – A Week With Google Sites

The Gadgets that Google offers are all created within the webpage or website itself.  This means that you need to have the information and content present before adding in a Gadget so the list below should help in getting the content before adding the Gadget.

Recent Post feeds from the “announcements” page – this means that you have needed to add a page (using the gear in the upper right hand corner) that stores announcements and follow that template.

Text Box is similar to a text box in other programs, but you’ll need to place the text in the box before and then it resizes, no clicking and dragging in the document itself.

HTML Box is a separate pop-out box that you can add a few lines of HTML to and then place inside your document.
