I added a way for the MySpace users to add the BGG Web Widget as an image to their pages.

I'll have to work some text into it, but for now it seems to be working ok.

Any chance of an option to have it generated as a "direct" image in the future? To make it available to more platforms.

Perhaps it's the specific settings on a forum that I visit but it didn't work for me on a phpBB forum (I tried html and forum code for images). I'm guessing that the script isn't tolerated.

I can't seem to get this to land in my MySpace profile. Something about it causes the editor to reject the img tag. I even tried removing the javascript and it still didn't like it.

Yeah, MySpace wants nothing to do with this and converts it to '..' when you try to save it to a profile.

I made some tweaks to get around myspace's weird rules for images. So give that a try. Make sure you have the "Display as Image" checkbox selected.

Is there any chance to get an other image format than the square format. There are always parts cut away, so I would like to have the rectangle format instead.

THX 4 listening my english.
