Link profile to own website?

Is there some kind of "Hire me through oDesk" widget I can add to my website? Google gives confusing and seemingly old information on this.

I do not think we have the "Hire me" widget on oDesk.
What you can do is place a button on your site and link that to your oDesk profile page. That should do the same thing.

Mods, any answer for this? Apparently there used to be one and then it disappeared...

There used to be a widget but I think it went away with one of the main profile changes (about a year ago?).

 

Even without a full widget you can get it done with a simple HTML/CSS - add a button, link it to your profile, goal achieved. It's not an ideal solution but at least it would be faster than waiting for oDesk to bring the widget back.

Hi Everyone,

 

Yes there was a Hire Me widget but like Bojana D. mentioned, the widget is no longer available. I will pass your feedback along to our team to see about having a widget available again in the future.

 

Thanks,

Is there any update on whether there will be an UpWork Widget to place on my own website? I get that I can create my own but it'd be nice to have something official from UpWork. Thanks in advance.

Hi Brent, Unfortunately, the Hire Me widget is no longer available.

Hi Brent,

 

You have to create your own and put your profile link in it.

Any possibilities for profile widget builder, so we can embed our profile to our personal portfolio site?

Hi Mitu,

 

The Hire Me widget is no longer available, but we'll be sure to share this with the team. If you have other suggestions, please let us know.

Great, but is possible set an iframe so anyone can embed his or her profile (prefer the main summary only :)) to his or her personal site. What do you think?
