Hello, Ninja Community!
Welcome to the inaugural post in our “Feature Talk” category, a dedicated space for discussions around our widgets. Your insights are invaluable in shaping the evolution of Common Ninja, and we’re eager to hear your thoughts.
In this spirit, we invite you to share your ideas: What widget do you want to see next in our suite?
Think about the challenges you face in your online endeavors, or new opportunities you’ve identified. Perhaps there’s a specific need that none of our current widgets cover, or maybe you have an innovative idea that’s entirely new to the market.
All ideas are welcome, no matter how unique or ambitious. Your input can make a significant difference in our product development and inspire the next game-changer in our widget family.
Let’s kickstart the conversation! What widget ideas have you been brewing?
Hello, I am new to the community, and I suggested a couple of widgets through the normal Common Ninja suggestion form. I am working on developing an international news site, and there are several embedded widgets I am experimenting with: A weather widget, a currency converter widget, and a day & night world clock widget. The widgets I have found in these categories have several shortcomings. Common Ninja recently released a weather widget which is great…So I have suggested the other two widgets for development; and I am currently experimenting with the following on my site:
Online Currency Converter
Day and Night World Clock - Wolfram Demonstrations Project
I trust Common Ninja can produce great alternative widgets.
These are great ideas @chas7!
We’ll definitely add these two widgets to our offering later on this year
Hey there! Really loving the hotspot widget, I’ve created a crazy map that I’m still developing. I had mentioned before to development team but think I should mention it again here…
It would be really nice to be able to insert an HTML snippet into the hotspot tooltip content. My idea is to have anchors for the hotspots on the map so I can refer to that exact spot from my website pages. Here’s my map!
That’s a great idea! Are you aware of the option to add links and text to the image’s description?
I am aware, Daniel! I’ve been using it extensively but my limitation is the ability to create the anchors and I’m guessing I’ll need HTML ability for that It would really level up what I’m trying to do for my clients!
Got it. Thanks for the feedback!
Just wanted to let you know that the currency converter app is out!
That’s great news! Your team really worked hard to bring it out so quickly. I’ll check it out shortly.
Looking forward to hearing your feedback!
Will love to see new RSS List style widget with ability to chose from one column list or two column list.
My proposal was to be added a new Layout - RSS List with one column or two columns. Currently the List Layout is missing but it is very popular out there.
Oh got it. Thanks for the feedback. We plan to improve our RSS widget early 2024 and add new layouts and control there
