New Widget: FMyLife

I have created a new widget for use with BlogEngine.Net to display recent or random FML's from the site FMyLife.com. The widget has settings for how many to display (up to 15), how long to cache the items for, and whether to pull recent FML's or random FML's. Due to the way the FML API works, when pulling random FML's only one will be displayed at a time regardless of how many you set as the max. With the FML API getting random FML's only returns one at a time and I didn't want to have the overhead of pulling many random items via multiple calls to the API.

You can download the widget here: FMyLife.zip (3.54 kb) Simply download an unzip into the widgets folder.

You can also see it in action here: DerekPinkerton.com.

Enjoy!
