About Embedding Nomadic Politics Content on Your Website

by Nomad

Often I have been asked whether a Nomadic Politics article can be used as content for another website. That's a great idea. However, copying the entire page is my least favorable choice. Appropriating other people's work entirely is not really a good practice.

On the other hand, a simple hyperlink may not be suitable in terms of  providing the kind of content you are looking for. I have been looking for some kind of compromise. 
So here's a different approach that I recommend.  

At the bottom of each post, you will see a button, Embedly. If you can't find it, consult the image below. It's a pretty cool way of adding content to your site.

Click on the button at the bottom of whatever article you'd like to feature at your site. You will then be provided a handy snippet with a photo (when available). From that, an HTML code can be obtained and you can add this to your site.

(If you are unfamiliar with using HTML on your website, this is a good time to learn. It's fairly straightforward- barring the "learning experience surprises. Knowledge of HTML gives you more control over how your site looks. )

As far as the embedded portion, you are free to adapt the text portion to highlight certain passages or add a better summary. I am not sure how much control you can over image selection. 

Send me an email using the contact form at the side bar and I will try to assist if you need help.
Thanks for your interest and for all your support.
