On my profile page I use the BGG Recently Played Games widget, and as of this evening it's just showing the Firefox 'bad image' icon, and when I go to the widget generator it says it "can't display the preview as it contains errors".

I also went looking at other users, and found a similar bad image icon where the 'games played display' should be.

I love my widget - hope it can recover!

You need to post your browser info, as it could be browser specific.

I am running Safari 7.1 on MacOS 10.9.5 and see the same problem on my profile page, put it is working correctly on my home page.

Same results on latest version of Google Chrome (38.0.2125.104 m) running on Windows 7.

I'm only seeing the issue with the Display as Image option.

OK, I'm using Firefox 32.0.3 on Windows Vista.

It's only for the 'display as image' option, but that's the one I want to run.

I don't want happiness by halves, nor is half of sorrow what I want. Yet there's a pillow I would share, where gently pressed against a cheek like a helpless star, a falling star, a ring glimmers on the finger of a hand.

I've just posted (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/17268851#17268851]) on the Microbadge submission, design and feedback thread (my home at the Geek), to see how universal the problem is.

If you read the follow up conversation, you'll see so far everyone is seeing the same thing.

Everyone apart from one user, has their widgets not displaying - and those that are broken for the user we all see as broken, and in the case of the one user with a working widget, we all see that as working.

So now I'm intrigued what's different about the one user who's got a working widget?

Just looking at this. All Widgets seem to be fine for me on my profile, but not on the profile I use for Halesowen Boardgamers

Edit: I just went and recorded a fictional play of a game and that now seems to have broken the recently played widget on my profile. Maybe this suggests that previously the widget was a cached version but now I make a change that is where the problem occurs.

Edit2: I deleted the play and now it's working again.

When I look at both your profiles, neither have working widgets.

Yes they're both broken for me now too.

And now it's not working again. (Or at least not for me.)

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

Yup, widget woes have returned for me as well.

I wonder if it's linked to:

Transitioning to https

Use https instead of http in the widget code to make it work now:
