To get started follow these directions:
1. Log into ComicBookRealm.com
2. Go to your profile (click on "my realm" and then "My Profile")
3. Click on "Manage Blocks"
4. Click on "New Block"
5. Title your block (make it something so others will know what it is about)
6. Choose the block type
a. Custom - This is an open block that you can add any self contained HTML code that you want. If you go to a website and they have a widget that you want on your profile, get the "embed" code and paste it in the "Code" box.
b. Function - These are CBR.com specific items. Currently there is a "Blogs - last 5" which shows your last 5 blogs you have written, "Blogs - latest" which is your latest blog (just a teaser with a more link), and "Random Cover" which displays a random cover from your collection.
c. Report - These are CBR.com reports that you can share with others about your collection. Currently there is just the "On the Move" report which shows recent value changes to your collection.
d. RSS - This allows you to pull in an external RSS feed from another source to display on your profile. For instance if you have a feed from del.icio.us it will list the items on your CBR.com profile
7. Save the block
After your profile finishes loading you will notice that if you hover your mouse over the blue block title the cursor will change to a crosshair. Simply click on the block title area and you can drag your blocks up and down and from column to column. You layout your profile as you want to.
Also if you visit someone's profile that has a block you like, there is a copy icon on the right hand side of the title that will add it to your collection. You can then go back into manage blocks to customize it if needed (i.e. change title etc.)
I am always looking to improve this area so if you have ideas/suggestions on things you would like to see or be able to do, please let me know.
