As part of a minor update since the release of Listly V3 we updated the embed preview screen. We think it’s much simpler. We hope you like it.
Notice on the the embed preview page there’s really only one decision with 4 layout options:
- Full – Small image, fully readable item copy.
- Gallery – Great for summaries and media playlists, short form item copy.
- Short – Great for link lists – no item copy.
- Header Only - Great for embedding just the list metrics
We streamlined the process to make it easier to know what code you need to grab whether you are using WordPress or some other blogging platform, so now both are fully visible and selectable.
The only exception is if you pick the header and in this case you only have the option of an iframe.
Here’s what the preview pages look like:
Here’s examples of lists, using each of the four layouts
Full Layout : Margaret Thatcher Coverage
The magnificence of Thatcher was her adamantine refusal to accept the conventional wisdom of her age. When she became premier in 1979, almost everybody who mattered accepted it as fact that Britain was finished. Almost everyone believed that the unions - the new feudal barons - were in control, and there was nothing to be done about it.
Further evidence in the history of the Law of Attraction can be found in the King James version of the Bible. We see that Job may not have fully understood the workings of Attraction, however like many people today he suffered the Consequences of the law by not using it for his good.
Creating a new gift basket can be much like a writer staring at a blank piece of paper. Overcoming the initial vacuum of creating something from nothing is often the hardest part. Yet it needn't be.
The first time I met Margaret Thatcher, I swear she was wearing gloves. The place was her office at the Department of Education, then in Curzon Street. Maybe my memory is fanciful. Perhaps she had just come inside. But without any question, sitting behind her desk, she was wearing a hat.
In the preemie days of the Internet, I edited a (now defunct) Washington publication called The Women's Quarterly, published by The Independent Women's Forum. One of our regular features (if being published in a "quarterly" can be called regular by today's standards) was a column called "The Token Man," written by a different male contributor each issue.
Protest songs thrive on combat. Complicated policy details may cause the songwriter's pen to freeze but larger-than-life politicians who polarise opinion enable the ink to flow. It is striking that, despite all the frustration and ferment of the punk era, nobody wrote a memorable song about Jim Callaghan.
How a future Prime Minister of Britain warmed to the godman with an Indian diplomat playing the reluctant translator India House is among the better known diplomatic establishments in London. I first set eyes on the imposing building in 1952, when I was a student at Cambridge University.
In her remarkable life, Margaret Thatcher achieved what Hillary Rodham Clinton still wants (or at least what the pundits say she wants): She became the first female leader of her country, and she did it in such a determined way that her sex was almost an afterthought.
I thought she'd bitten Mitterrand: Margaret Thatcher's diplomacy had verve and vigour aplenty, but passengers needed ...
By Charles Powell PUBLISHED: 18:38 EST, 8 April 2013 | UPDATED: 20:58 EST, 8 April 2013 For the diplomatic world, the arrival of Margaret Thatcher in No.10 Downing Street in 1979 was akin to a tornado. The same willpower which enabled her to make significant changes in Britain was energetically applied to the wider world.
(£) The sour, sectarian side of Mrs Thatcher obscured the fact she was often right It was one thing to be doing the Thatchering, it was another to be the Thatched. I was 24 when Maggie became PM, 36 when she departed, and most of that time felt like a stranger in my own country.

Short Layout : List of Visio Alternatives for Mac
Microsoft Visio alternatives on Mac OS X
A list of software alternatives to Microsoft Visio Diagrams on Mac OS X. There isn't one that matches Visio 100%. But options in this list could meet some of the requirements if not all. Lastly, there is always the option of running Visio/Win on VMware Fusion or Parallels.
