Delicious widget shows no links, please help!

  1. I have added the delicious widget to my blog, and configured it as per the video instructions. Unfortunately, all I end up with is a single link to my delicious page. None of the many bookmarks I've got in my delicious account actually show up!

    Anyone have any ideas what I might be doing wrong? I suspect it may be something to do with the "delicious login" field, as I had created a delicious account before yahoo took over the sign-in process.... could that be the reason? And if so, how do I make it work?

    Thanks for your help! :)

    The blog I need help with is philippaberrysmith.wordpress.com.

  2. I tried adding a text/HMTL widget, then pasting in the linkroll code from delicious. Should work. Cross fingers...no. Fail. Why?

    ...I think I may have solved my own question: turns out that wordpress.com does not allow users to post javascript, see here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/ So that was never going to work.

    Ok so now I know that the in-built wordpress/delicious widget is broken, and I can't do it the other way.... any ideas folks? This should be simple, but it's driving me crazy! :P

  3. Well, I don't know delicious, but the code in the widget on your blog is this:

    ious Links I Like</a></h3>
    
    <div id="delicious-box" class="snap_preview" style="margin: 0pt; padding: 0pt; border: medium none;"> </div>
    			<script type="text/javascript" src="http://feeds.delicious.com/v1/json/philippaberrysmith?count=10"></script>
    			<script type="text/javascript">
    			function showImage(img){ return (function(){ img.style.display='inline'; }) }
    			var ul = document.createElement('ul');
    			for (var i=0, post; post = Delicious.posts[i]; i++) {
    				var li = document.createElement('li');
    				var a = document.createElement('a');
    				a.setAttribute('href', post.u);
    				a.appendChild(document.createTextNode(post.d));
    				li.appendChild(a);
    				ul.appendChild(li);
    			}
    			ul.setAttribute('id', 'delicious-list');
    			document.getElementById('delicious-box').appendChild(ul);
    			</script>
    		</div>

    And of that the only thing I think may be a problem is the actual feed address. Is it indeed http://feeds.delicious.com/v1/json/philippaberrysmith ?

    Because most feeds I deal with have /feed at the end, not at the beginning. Try putting that feed URL in an RSS widget and see if it displays that way.

    Then again, there's a long shot that it only displays NEW posts to delicious, so try making one.

  4. For what it's worth, I have the exact same problem of philippaberrysmith.
    For raincoaster, I am not interested in featuring my posts on delicious, but rather in featuring the pages I save in delicious on my side widget in my blog.
    Thanks in advance for any advice!

  5. Yes, that's what the widget is for. I understand that. What I'm asking is for you to confirm the feed address of your delicious account, to attempt to put it in an RSS widget, and to report what happens when you make a new post to Delicious/.
