Any interest in adding a cool Windows 8 UI download toolbox to your blog or website? Make your blog or website the place people go to find the latest downloads :) I put together some resource pages that I am using on my blog and wanted to share the embed codes with you in case you want to use it on your website or blog. Make your site the GO TO location for the latest downloads by adding this really cool looking toolbox. You make the change on your site and it will “auto magically” be update with links to the latest software when new releases come out. I would love to see you post on your blog or website if you think the information is useful to your friends or other audiences, please do help me promote it. If you need help implementing it for your blog/website please feel free to reach out to me http://itproguru.com/contact/. I would be happy to help you get these activated for your community.
I created some active images for the download resources. There is a horizontal version and a vertical grid version. For each there is a “Static” and an “Active - Live Tiles” version. Use whichever you want (or both, all if you like) Notice more changes are coming regularly. You now have the option of adding your own image and link to your RSS or About page (or whatever page you want)
If you add this toolbox to your website or blog, send me an email with a link to the page that is displaying the toolbar and I will add you to the “Friends of Live Tiles Toolbox” post. This blog gets 10’s of thousands of unique visitors per week so a link back to your site can help raise your ranking. Hope this helps and thanks for supporting Live Tiles Toolbox.
Current links included Windows Server 2012, Windows Azure, Early Experts, Microsoft Virtual Academy, System Center, Private Cloud, Hyper-V Server, More… Plus, we are planning some really cool changes. If you have more suggestions, please let us know.
