    Hey... is there a forumspy widget? That would be cool. I guess I can make one when we get leopard, but I want one now mommy!!!!:p
    Naaaa... If you make your own widget in leopard can you distribute it? Or just PM me?
    Thank y'all.

    I had an MR Widget, which showed the headlines on the frontpage, but this sounds like a sweet idea. Of course it will be easy with webclip, but we don't wanna wait 6 freakin' months!:D

    When does it become Official© by the way? I am assuming when I FINISH it. :rolleyes:

    Someone clue me in on how forum spy works and I can try for a widget.

    Well, RSS on the spy page doesn't work... so if a a Mod could clue me in on the inner workings of spy I can probably add that feature.

    A forum spy widget would be pretty sweet. The page looks like ajax to me so I'm not sure how to implement that in a widget. I'm looking forward to one though, if it's possible.

    500th post woot! :)

    I was able to drop the ajax script into a working widget. I just can't get the scrollbar to work correctly yet. I'll work it out though.

    Quick update on the Forum Spy widget... I posted the widget in another thread, unfinished.

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=2900037#post2900037

    I had been doing all my testing in Safari and not in the dashboard environment... long story short, I've hit a bit of a snag. Anybody who knows a little bit about coding can feel free to download the existing (not quite working) forum spy widget and see if they can figure out what I'm doing wrong.

    I'd love to get this running!
