Poodll widgets are ready made items that you can add to a page to perform different functions. Poodll widgets include, stopwatches, timers, charts, test to speech, tabs and accordians.


Prerequisites


To use Poodll widgets you will need to install the following Poodll plugins:

  • The Poodll Filter
  • Poodll Anywhere for Atto (optional but strongly recommended)

Using Poodll Widgets


The process of inserting a Poodll widget goes like this.


1. Select the Poodll widget icon
2. Choose the widget from the menu

3. Insert it on the page

4. Display the page (snd the widget).


The widgets are inserted into an HTML editor area as Poodll filter strings. Poodll will expand the filter strings into the widget when the page is displayed. 


A Poodll filter string looks like this:

{POODLL:type=stopwatch}


When displayed, that might look like this.
