Get the Squidget!

Our "squidget" means people can share the story of their care on your site, without leaving your web pages.

Adding our squidget to your page takes only a minute or two (so long as you are allowed to edit your HTML).

How to embed the squidget on your web page

All you have to do is place this HTML code into your web page, where you want the squidget to appear:

<iframe src="http://www.careopinion.org.au/widget/YourOpinion" allowTransparency="true" scrolling="no" width="700" height="900" frameborder="0">You must have a browser that supports iframes to view the Care Opinion widget</iframe>

This should be enough to get you started, but if you get stuck, do feel free to contact us.

You can adjust the height and width of your squidget, subject to a few constraints:

  1. Width can go down to about 480 pixels as a minimum. Below that it will get a bit disorderly.
  2. The height needs to stay above 900 pixels because later in the story-telling process more vertical space is used. For this reason we also recommend that you do not put anything below the squidget on the page.
  3. Typically, if you make the squidget narrower, you'll also need to increase the height.
  4. It is worth testing the full workflow once you have the squidget in place, to make sure nothing is cut off the bottom of each step. But note you will be sending stories to our live site, so please enter "testing" in the story title so we know not to publish your test stories!

Make sure your visitors understand

When people visit your web site, they might not understand that their story is handled by Care Opinion, and not by you. We recommend you add some text to explain this clearly.

What you say is up to you - but here's a suggestion to get you started:

If you've experienced adult social care recently, either as a service user yourself or as a carer or friend of someone else, please tell us how it was. What was good? What could have been better?

Your story will be handled confidentially by the non-profit service Care Opinion Australia. Your story may appear (without your name) on their website. Care Opinion Australia asks the health service to respond to the feedback you share, but does not reveal your identity.

This service is independent of [your site here] and government. For more information about CareOpinion Australia and how your story is handled, visit www.careopinion.org.au.
