Great news. Could you please point us to the page? I don't see it on the link in your signature. ๐Ÿ˜

Biggie! there seems to be a problem. i pasted it in my blog but it isn't showing up. You will notice it in the top left corner (where just a click is written) and the link doesn't point to CE

Looks great

Code in the announcement has been updated for all the badges ๐Ÿ˜ . Please post here if you face any issues.

Everyone, we'd like to see CE badges on your blog

Can we have a rectangular or a square badge?

I'm some how not liking the shape. Sorry boys! :-(
mahul
mahul • Oct 22, 2008
Yep, I believe that we should allow CEans to submit their images for the CE badges and select from amongst those or open all of them up for posting.

Could it be added to free wordpress blogs ? I don't think links can be pasted in widget section. Please elaborate.

Can't have badges for everyone's liking. Will try for square/rectangular badge.

Of course it can be ๐Ÿ˜ !

Just add the 'text' widget in your sidebar and paste the badge code. Add title to the widget if you want and save it. [โ€‹IMG]

Alright. Rectangular badge is coming all your way. Color preferences, do you have any? ๐Ÿ˜‰

The CE color is best!

Kaustubh Katdare • Oct 22, 2008
So, I'm in the process of making a rectangular badge. The color preference has to be the dark red/white.

Ok, let me work ๐Ÿ˜
I was thinking, my CE shield pic I did for the CE shirt competition might be suitable for a "badge"

Ash - you are our official Inkscape expert . I'm still trying to figure out how to get those 'glass' like effects. Can you help? The rectangular/square badges are in demand!

I just checked the "I'm Powered By CrazyEngineers". Could you extract the background shield and mail the svg to me?

I first learnt from this video tutorial:
screencasters.heathenx.org ยป Blog Archive ยป Episode 017

Try checking out the other videos. They are really good!

It takes trial and error to get the shading/effect you want. But its worth it ๐Ÿ˜‰

[EDIT] I'll email the svg as soon as I can

Addendum:

The original announce has been updated with the latest rectangular badge ๐Ÿ˜‰ yay!
Mayur Pathak
Mayur Pathak • Oct 23, 2008
Can the badge be a bit short? Check my blog. Its going out of the side bar.
Kaustubh Katdare
Kaustubh Katdare • Oct 23, 2008
It can be, but we'll have to sacrifice the logo for simple "CrazyEngineers" text. Is that ok?
Kaustubh Katdare
Kaustubh Katdare • Oct 23, 2008
Alright guys!

We have 120 x 44 badge that will fit your blog's sidebar. Check the announcement here -> https://www.crazyengineers.com/forum/announcements/6906-ce-badges-your-blog-website-new-post.html
