Does anyone know if its possible to have scripts within the about me box. I tried switching to html view and inserting the code generated from :

<script src="" type="text/javascript"></script><script type="IN/MemberProfile" data-id="" data-format="hover" data-text="Fraser Hardy" data-related="false"></script>


However it doesn't display anything. Any ideas if this is possible, or could someone produce a Linkedin widget?

It seems that the "IN/MemberProfile" is being replaced by a "text/javascript" which is a default of the tinyMCE plugin.

You could get around this by creating a widget, embedding it directly into your html, or over riding the tinyMCE initialization.

I would say the widget is the easiest.
