Chinpose on your WordPress Blog…

4 Jul

Introduction

Friday is Chinposin Day. If the previous line did not make any sense to you, then it’s time you read my good friend Blag‘s blog on Chinposin.

What started off as an one off experiment is growing into a full fledged avatar management platform with more and more functionality being added every day. With a avatar timeline per user along with it’s feed, Tiltviewer and many more upcoming features all of which can be found on the Chinposin Blog, this was a perfect platform to develope my first WordPress Widget.

The WordPress Chinposin Widget can be downloaded here and it shows a slideshow of random avatar images from your avatar timeline.
