We recently released an all new “add to wishpot” button you can use on your sites beginning now. It provides a lighter-weight implementation of our original button that is simpler to include on your pages with much less markup. It also no longer requires the use of a form, which means it can be included inside your own forms without producing invalid HTML.
The buttons are installed in two parts.
1) A common bit of code you include on any page that has the button. This code loads asynchronously so it won’t slow down your pages.
2) A snippet of HTML that’s just an image and an anchor tag with HTML5 data attributes.
