Can I put widgets on my profile?

I’ve been trying for like an hour and they’re not working. Maybe I’m doing something wrong? Or they’re just not allowed?

Any kind of scripts in profiles were disabled (exactly a year ago today, actually) during an incident where a user was using scripts to redirect to a phishing site. If they require any kind of scripting, they won’t work.

Also moved to the appropriate section.

Well, some widgets like the ones on my profile work, but as Twilitlord points out, most scripts have been disabled.

Yup. Those things are neat, sure, but they bring risks we rather don’t have.
