Avatars for crossposted liveblogs

    Now that we have avatars on Rock Content, your may decide that you want your avatars to show up on your crossposted liveblogs. Not a problem! We are now attaching CSS classes to the HTML that we crosspost. The posts from each writer have a CSS class like Writer1234 (1234 is their unique ID on Rock Content.com).

    We’ve whipped up a stylesheet you can use to style your crossposted events. Here’s an example of the CSS it will produce for a liveblog with four writers in it. Here’s an example of a crossposted liveblog with avatars.

    To get started, please follow these steps:

    1. Follow the steps to create a liveblog on Rock Content and crosspost it to your blog
    2. Open your WordPress admin area and edit the post that was created in step #1
    3. At the very end of the HTML of the post, you will see something like this:

      <script type="text/javascript">var LastPostLiveBlog = "10/2/2008 9:40:43 PM"; var ThreadLiveBlog1234 = new LiveBlog1234( 1234, true, LastPostLiveBlog, "", false, null, document.getElementById("LiveBlog1234Posts"), 400 );ThreadLiveBlog1234.PollForNew();</script>
    4. Make note of the numerical number — your liveblog id — that appears throughout. In the example above, the number is 1234.
    5. Append this stylesheet HTML to the very top of the post, replacing #### with your liveblog id from #4:
      <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://rockcontent.com/crossposting/css/v2.aspx?Id=####" type="text/css" media="all" />
    6. That’s it, you’re done!
