    I started using this thing one minute after I read this post. That’s how exciting it is. I had just today put the finishing touches on a set of new electronic tunes, one year in the making, and I had been planning to sell some CDs but in a rush of generosity I decided to try this Box.net widgy and make my music freely available. The combined registration and uploading procedure is one of the easiest I have ever come across. Before I knew quite what had happened, my ten tunes were housed in a beautiful box on my sidebar. The way it springs to life when the page is loaded is very sexy. Thank you WordPress.com for making my blogging life so much fun. Love you, bye!

    Killer!

  27. Kevin

    I’ve been using Box.net for nearly a year now and already share files with my readers via Box.net. That this is now integrated into WordPress.com is really one of the most useful new features for me.

  28. skykid

    Doesn’t work… Widget doesn’t appear in my blog – just an empty place. Sorry, I do like it.

  39. didixi

  40. snowqueen

    This is an absolutely brilliant widget!! I can now upload whole short stories to my writing blog. Thank you so much for this – definitely the most useful widget so far!

  41. .:Marianis World:.

    This is a very good tool, but it’s not working. When I try to get my HTML code by clicking on the link of the sidebar widget, another window opens and Its says: “Box.net/lite is temporarily not accepting uploads. Thanks for your interest.
    Please email support@box.net for support ”
    How can we fix this?

    Thank you!

  42. abu ameerah

  52. djoszee

    nice widget, although I’m missing a few things with wp embedding:
    - a list of color codes for all objects in each themes (i had to go the photoshop copy/paste method)
    - this wiki still shows a headerbar (at least it does on blix)

    Please reply,
    thanks in advance :)

  53. TiDeS

    I think this is one of the most innovative ideas I’ve come across since my encounter with wordpress half a year ago.

    The beauty of customisation and the sorts… ah!
