Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I added the "Stackoverflow Profile View" gadget to my iGoogle page, but it doesn't work.

I see

Information is temporarily unavailable

inside an empty gadget.

I have deleted all my gadgets and re-added "Stackoverflow Profile View" gadget, and still get the same error.


Ah nuts! Stack Overflow has added JavaScript to de-frame itself. So, this gadget will no longer work.

What gadget is this? – Ether Feb 27 '10 at 7:34
@Ether i think it is named as StackOverflow profile gadget... Please search for it.. – Oscar Feb 27 '10 at 7:58
"Please search for it" -- are you kidding? Do you call the Microsoft help desk saying "This program I use has an error. I think it's called Photoshop. Please search for it and then help me."? – balpha Feb 27 '10 at 12:28
Now that iGoogle is on its way out, this is not only off-topic, but also too localized. – Pops Oct 8 '12 at 3:23

You may want to consult the place that you downloaded the Stackoverflow Profile View gadget. If it was on Meta, you might want to post a comment/answer to the author's question introducing the widget.

As far as I know, the creators of Stackoverflow do not publish offical widgets, gadgets, or any other 3rd party application, as they are focused enough as it is on the actual development of the site.
