I'm unable to get it to work.

First, you have to sign up for an account at dashboard-widgets.eu. Why? I don't know. You don't seem to be able to login online and manage (or delete) your account afterwards, so I can't imagine why it would be necessary.

The website seems to suggest that the dashboard-widgets.eu account is optional, but I tried entering auction numbers on the reverse of the widget without entering account info and was repeatedly told to create a dashboard-widgets.eu account.

Then you have to authorize the widget with eBay. Fair enough. But even after doing that, the widget doesn't retrieve any of my watched items and still tells me to "create dashboard-widgets.eu account".

Unless there's a really good reason for it that I'm missing, the devs would seem to be able to save themselves (and end users) a lot of hassle by eliminating the dashboard-widgets.eu account requirement. Shame, too, because good eBay widgets for Dashboard are in scarce supply.

Quick edit: The widget is working using the login info from my dashboard-widgets.eu account in the version marked 1.0 (which has no English localization, apparently). The current download version, which is the one that's been giving me problems (but does have English localization), is designated as 1.4.

I'm still a bit confused, but I will say that things are working with the German-language v1.0.

Hi,
first thanks for you feedback. We liked it a lot and updated the widget. We recently launched version 1.7 which should fix a couple of bugs. Also, there is now a help section at http://dashboard-widgets.eu/help/

If you still feel you dont need an dbw account, just clear out username+password. You will be able to track up to 3 favorite items without and login.

Please also feel free to send us feedback: info@dashboard-widgets.eu

Thanks,

DBW
