If you had previously used the widget embed codes from the old B1G1 system (www.b1g1.com) on your website, please replace them with the embed codes from the new B1G1 system (account.b1g1.com) before February 15. This will ensure that your websites will not be affected by the retirement of the old widgets, which will no longer display any content from February 15 onwards.
To retrieve your new widget embed codes:
1. Log in to account.b1g1.com
2. Click on the Share tab, then the Impact Widgets sub-header
3. Choose a widget, then click Embed Widget button or the </> button

This is because the embed code has been kept identical except for the subdomain change.

The new embedded Giving Stories and Campaigns are styled and sized differently from those in the legacy system. Hence, you would also need to copy the new codes from your new B1G1 account and replace the old codes.
