How do I use imvuBLING to let people request my bling?

imvuBLING provides code snippets (HTML/JavaScript/BBCode) you can put in your IMVU pages or other websites, which will allow visitors to request your badges. The codes are generated based on your avatar name, and can be obtained from the Get Code page.

The primary code snippet that you will need to use is the JavaScript based 'Blinger Code'. The 'Blinger' serves two purposes: it allows your visitors to request your bling, and allows you to send bling to those who have requested it.

Your visitors will see: You will see:

*Important* You must have the "Blinger Code" on your avatar page or one of your product pages. It needs to be on an IMVU page in order to get your badge data and work properly!

The "Blinger Code" can be used on multiple pages, but only ONCE per page. imvuBling also provides other non-JavaScript based code snippets that can be used multiple times per page, and in places that JavaScript is not allowed.

How do I use imvuBLING to send my bling?

To send your bling, you will use the Blinger which you added to your avatar page or product page. Click "Manage", and then click "Load". It will retrieve a list of your badges, and a list of the people who have requested them. It should appear similar to the following:

Check off the badges you want to send. Click "Grant Checked Badges to All", and watch it run! DO NOT CLOSE YOUR BROWSER WINDOW UNTIL IT IS HAS FINISHED RUNNING! If it displays a message of "Unable to complete prior task.", simply reclick the "Grant Checked Badges to All" button to restart it.

Once it has finished, click the "Clear All Requests" button at the bottom, so that only new requests will be shown the next time you use the Blinger.

I have other questions.
