Version: 1.0
New in v1.0: the main new feature in this release is autocomplete. when you first launch the widget, it connects to your account and retrieves all your tags. then when you start typing in the tag field of the widget, it will make suggestions based on what you are typing. you can navigate these choices by using the arrow up/down keys on your keyboard then press return to select. this should speed up your tagging.

I was hoping someone would make this widget! I can't wait to try it out tomorrow! smiley

Well, this one seems abandoned.. Worked fine for 10.4.0 but stopped working after 10.4.1. Also, the entry fields are wiped clean each time you pop in and out of dashboard, making quick references to the website you're listing out of the question.'s pop up window is much more convenient and reliable.

My suggestions? Make it work. Make it remember entered data between dashboard sessions. Add the ability to collapse and expand depending on usage. (take a look at Dashblog for a good implementation of that)

Here's how it worked for me. On my iMac 17" 800Mhz the widget functioned as the earlier version did. It stalls when connecting to This version stalls when collecting tags and when submitting. I let it "submit" for two hours and it never completed. I know my username and password are entered correctly. In addition, this widget used to work for me before 10.4.1.

On my iBook 14" 1.33Ghz the widget behaved unusually. It loaded blank. I could guess where the "i" & "done" was and toggle the blank widget back and forth. I deleted the widget and redownloaded it, restarted the dock, logged out and logged back in again. Every time I ran dashboard I was greeted with a blank widget.

You know, my first comment to you was fairly grumpy, which I apologize for. I really want this widget to work. Good luck working out the bugs.

OK, got it to work. This was the problem. widget-com.protagonist.widget.dashLicious.plist was corrupted so by deleting it and rebooting the dashboard I was able to use the widget again.

To be fair, corrupt pref files seem to be a common problem with widgets. Apple has a few bugs left to work out.

My only request at this point is for you to make the widget collapsible. And maybe post a comment or two in here. LOL I can't be the only person using this widget!
