delicious widget not working
Will you please post an active link starting with http:// to the blog in question?
Are you referring to the RSS widget provided by WordPress.com here > Appearance > Widgets? If so then it cannot operate unless or until Delicious which has now changed hands provides a fully operational feed URL for you to place into the widget. See their support pages please. http://deliciousengineering.blogspot.com/
Thanks for the answers, i guess we should just wait and see what happens.
I’m another one hoping for a solution :)
Same problem here with the Delicious widget: no feed reaching WP blogs. I have informed both WP Support and Delicious Support. But there is no response.
Thank you for the update – was getting kinda of cranky trying to get mine going
This looks like it works:
Use an RSS widget and insert this as the feed url: http://feeds.delicious.com/v2/rss/yourdeliciousname
The greater problem is that WP engineers have so far refused to help with the Delicious widget problem. Apparently they cannot come to an arrangement with Delicious engineers on the feed to the designated widget and it is the users who are suffering. The Delicious widget will probably be removed completely at one point.
Archizoo, your RSS feed will work but not for those of us who have our Delicious account connected to more than one WP account. The advantage of the Delicious widget was that the links saved on a Delicious account could be sorted between the various different WP accounts.
It is not fair at all to WP user members to keep them in the dark about the non-functioning of the Delicious widget.
A WP engineer has just informed me that, “The Delicious widget is currently broken due to some changes in the URL structure on Delicious’ end. We’re aware of this and are working on finding a fix for it. Thanks for the patience and sorry for the delay.”
Thank you WP for finally informing us about the nature of the problem. We look forward to the fixing of the widget.
Good to know that im not crazy. Was just setting up my Delicious widget today and was testing. Could not figure out what was going on as the RSS widget was working.
My question is, other than filtering by tag, do I even need the Delicious specific widget?
Not the best formatting but regular RSS could work.

The Delicious widget is not going to be fixed very soon if at all. WordPress and Delicious are blaming each other for not doing the needful. Users should forget the Delicious widget and make custom menus for their links instead instead.
Yeah, I have a same problem…

@bharatabharati, do you have an example of making custom menus for links?
