this link to the official Google Wikipedia Search Gadget works for me:

Notice that the 4.0 documentation gives an outdated URL as an example. I will file an enhancement request against the documentation to update this.

Thank you :)

Hi Madhu, 

Are you trying to add the widgets to a hosted dashboard or to a dashboard hosted on a private RTC deployment?

The following gadget should definitely work:
However, I've confirmed that this does not load properly on due to security restrictions.
e.g. In the JavaScript Console:

Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 403 (Forbidden)

Are you seeing a partially loaded gadget with a similar error?

If you have a private RTC deployment, you will need to configure the "URL Whitelist" to allow outbound requests to be made from the RTC application to the server hosting the gadget.

In the Daily Puppy gadget case, the following URL needs to be added to the servers whitelist:
Important: Note the trailing forward-slash in the URL

Hi Mike,

Thank you. you are correct.
I tried to add these widgets in dashboard and some of these were possible, but i could not add them on our private RTC dashboard, this could be due to the reason that the URL is not present in the server whitelist. But i cannot add this to whitelist as i do not have permission's for this.

But your answer helped me , since i know how the widgets can be added and how they look, this gives me a hint to build own widgets. Please let me know if you have any hint on building own widgets.
