Original Post

My boyfriend and I recently created a tool that lets you share your treasuries on your blog. Our test phase is over and it's time to release it into the wild.

It's called Treasure Trove and it works by submitting your treasury ID to our site, and then hitting the 'generate' button. Treasure Trove will then automatically generate a code for you that you can simply copy and paste into your blog post. Your generated code should display your treasuries the same way you see them here on Etsy.

You can use Treasure Trove here: treasure.packagery.com/

If you have any comments or issues with Treasure Trove, you can use the contact form on the site, send me a convo, or leave a post here.

Thank you to everyone who has used Treasure Trove so far!

I have used it already and love it! Thanks so much.

Treasure Trove doesn't work in Tumblr. Maybe you could look into it? I would love to use it there, it's a great site for promoting.

Thanks again:D

Hmm.. Does Tumblr allow HTML in a post?

I'm glad you like it!

Interesting--thanks! When the page is back up I'll be sure to try it--I'm guessing there's an influx of traffic at the moment.

Oh--maybe it was my service, it's back now.

I just tried it on Tumblr and it does work, but it doesn't look like it's supposed to. I'm afraid the problem might be with Tumblr. The CSS/HTML of Tumblr must be overriding or just plain ignoring the formatting of the code that Treasure Trove generates.

I'm going to look into creating a more simplified HTML version so that it will work better with Tumblr. Thank you for letting me know about it! Tumblr completely slipped my mind when we were testing everything out.

I tried it on my blog and it looks great!

the only thing is that there is a lot of white space at the bottom and I am not sure why....

I'll try to figure that one out :) In the meantime, you should be able to use the other generator here: treasure.packagery.com/ownsite.php
It will generate a short javascript code instead of a block of HTML and should display without any problems.
Let me know how that one works!
