Last week I had to post our rental home on craigslist.org. Since I use vflyer.com to create my craigslist ads I was looking around on vflyer.com and noticed they have added some new features since the last time I was there.
To me the most interesting feature is the listing widget feature. This is a feature that allows you to create a little Flash display window that displays all your vflyers. You can then embed this little window on blogs and web pages (click on the image above to see an example). I can’t embed it directly on this blog because wordpress.com blogs do not allow the embed HTML tag so I created a page with the widget on another site. The way you would use this widget is if you had a vflyer for each listing you could put in on a Realtor site and it would display a list of all the vflyers.
There are other new widgets that you can use only if you have one of non-free accounts. This is a list of the different levels of accounts and what they can do. If you have a $9.95/mo account you can embed video on vflyers.
