Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

In my SO profile, I tried to do Edit profile and there in "About Me" text box, I tried to paste a HTML code as below provided by to display a button which would link to my profile on linkedin. But it does not seem to work on SO. This is the html code:

<a href="" >
    <img src="" width="160" height="33" border="0" alt="View Ajit Deshpande's profile on LinkedIn">
  1. When I checked the html tags allowed by SO, I found I had only the whitelisted tags allowed. So does this kind of thing I am trying to do work on SO.

  2. If yes how can I get it working?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Just a side note: you shouldn't use the alt attribute this way; use title instead. – Marcel Korpel Dec 1 '10 at 1:29

Try it without the border attribute in the img tag. The entire tag is getting stripped, not just the disallowed attribute.

Hmm. Might as well actually show it working...

<a href="" >
    <img src="" width="160" height="33" alt="View Ajit Deshpande's profile on LinkedIn">

View Ajit Deshpande's profile on LinkedIn

Okay, aside from the small problems of (a) using the wrong pronoun and (b) having the funky "underline", it seems to work reasonably well.
