File sharing Web app: Box.net

Just explored a nice place to upload files to:
http://www.box.net/
It is advertised from within the widgets of WordPress (Design – Widgets).

Steps to do:
– Sign up
– Create a folder
– Share the folder
– Upload a file
– embed the folder in WordPress or elsewhere

I made a folder called Shared. Here is how it can be reached:

Link to folder:
http://www.box.net/shared/aijyjkeyl5

Box embed:
<embed src=”http://www.box.net/static/flash/box_explorer.swf?widgetHash=aijyjkeyl5&cl=0” width=”460″ height=”345″ wmode=”transparent” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash”></embed>
<embed src=”http://www.box.net/static/flash/box_explorer.swf?widgetHash=aijyjkeyl5&v=1” width=”400″ height=”300″ wmode=”transparent” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash”></embed>

WordPress embed, which is put in the right sidebar as a widget (box.net file sharing):
<embed src=”http://www.box.net/static/flash/widget_player.swf” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” FlashVars=”subString=folderId=aijyjkeyl5,color=000000,title=Shared” wmode=”transparent” width=”180″ height=”400″></embed>
