Google Gadget is a dynamic web content that can be easily installed on any platform that supports it - for example, on Google Sites (Classic), Blogger, mySpace, iGoogle, Ning, Hi5 and many others that support gadgets or OpenSocial API.
Each Ecwid store is available as Google Gadget. There are two versions of it: a new and an old one.
Google Gadget v2 (new one)
This gadget version has two modes:
- Compact mode: when the size of the gadget's container is too small (< 500px), the gadget shows some random products and the "Open Store" button. As soon as you click the product or the button, the full mode gets launched. This mode is perfect for blog's or site's sidebars.
- Full mode: in this mode the gadget shows the full Ecwid store.
