    Can you give an example of the code that formspring wants you to put on your site? Put it between backticks, the keystroke to the left of the number 1 on many keyboards.

    We would have to see the code that they use. You can paste it here between code tags as below

    <code>put all the code here</code>

    Sorry, iframes are not allowed here for security reasons, so unless they would happen to offer it in flash (which we might be able to do via the gigya shortcode) there probably isn’t any way to do this.

    I may be dense, but to me all that looks like is nothing more than a styled link to http://www.formspring.me/shiyaaaaa

    And, just another thought, if that page offers an RSS feed, that could go in an RSS widget…

    the beginning where it says, <iframe src=”… pulls up a chunk of stuff from that link (notice where it says, “widget” in the URL?

    Yes, but…. trying to think of a solution that will work here. :) Looks to be iframe only (no flash), so …

    @bigsnapshot,
    The link for your widget is this:
    http://www.formspring.me/widget/view/shiyaaaaa

    If you’d like to add the iframe widget in wordpress.com so that it opens right in your blog, you can try out this workaround:

    Well, you have a text link that goes to your formspring page when clicked. That’s al right, that’s how text links act!

    If you want to show the widget in your blog, you can learn how to do it in this post.
