Hundreds of volunteers from the UNO, Omaha and Council Bluffs communities participated in this year's Seven Days of Service. Now in its 11th year, Seven Days of Service uses the week designated for Spring Break to give back to the Omaha Metro area. This year volunteers provided assistance to area organizations like Habitat for Humanity, the Southern Sudan Community Association and Lauritzen Gardens.

Let's say you've seen a 'Big Picture,' 'UNO Tube,' 'Through the Lens,' or 'Feature' item on the eNotes page or UNO home page that is relevant to your own site or page – or maybe you just think one of them would look nice.

Well, most of those 'Big Picture,' 'UNO Tube,' 'Through the Lens,' and 'Feature' items exist as includes on UNO's web server. What this means is for you is that all you'll need to do to get that content onto your own page is insert a single line of PHP code. That code goes in right-hand column (remember – these widgets are only for use in the right-hand column (04 Main Content Right Column) of the WTA_01 template) of your page.

That line of code would look like something this:
<?php include("/var/www/html/enotes/inc/bigpic/2008/0805.htm"); ?>
And the resulting 'Big Picture' widget would look like this:

So how would you know what includes are available and what the PHP code for displaying them would be? That's where this page and its handy-dandy RSS feed come in. Just subscribe to the 'Buildit Widgets Includes' RSS feed (click the RSS icon) and whenever a new 'Big Picture,' 'UNO Tube,' 'Through the Lens,' or 'Feature' widget is created it'll be added to the feed. That feed will give the 'type,' 'date,' and 'title,' a 'link' to a page using the include, and a 'description' that starts with the 'PHP code' you'll need to include that widget. If you'd prefer to not subscribe to the feed (although you really, really, should) you can just come to this page and look in the RSS widget below. The most recent additions will appear in the right-hand column of this page.
