Using Javascript?

I'm trying to set up an easy-to-update profile, by means of a link to a javascript program that is hosted off the gc.com site.

 

Specifically, I'm trying to change my profile to something like

 

<script src="REMOTE_URL/geoprofile.js"></script>

 

where geoprofile.js is a javascript file with code for a pretty list of milestones, FTFs, etc.

 

When I try updating my profile, the direct method doesn't work. If I change the 'Latest News' in my profile to something like the code above and then update, the 'Latest News' seems to change to a blank.

 

Is there some simple trick I'm missing?

 

I requested help from Groundspeak, but they were coy. They say that

(1) it's possible to include javascript from off-site locations

(2) it's not a supported feature, so they can't offer any help

and

(3) maybe someone on the Forums can help me.

 

Does anyone have any experience with this kind of thing? Thanks.

Sorry that didn't help.

 

My expierience with it has been with adding a stat listing (generated by keenpeople.com) to my profile. The exact link that works is:

 

<script language="JavaScript" src="http://www.keenpeople.com/components/com_stats/js_showstate.php?stateval=IL"></script>

 

I'm certainly no expert in this stuff, but maybe you can see some minor difference that I didn't.

 

Good luck!

The site behaves slightly differently (and works as I hoped in the first place) if I add some little bit of html in addition to the <script>...</script> part.

 

Initially, when I pasted the <script>...</script> stuff above into the 'Latest News' area and updated, the 'Latest News' changed to a blank.

 

Now, when I do the same thing with the same text but add a <br> at the beginning, it keeps what I pasted and adds type="text/javascript" inside the initial <script> tag.

 

I'm baffled, but it seems to work if you put a little standard html into the profile in addition to the javascript link. :unsure:
