Hosted Vanilla 2.0.13 does not work with Blogger

I've just installed Vanilla 2.0.13 on my own server and attempted to paste the Blogger Gadget address into my Blogger theme as described in this documentation.

All I get on blogger is an empty IFrame.

The browser console spits out this error
Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token <

which seems to be located between the <?xml /> tag and the doctype returned from remote.js

Any advice on how to get this working?

    Also I'd like to get clarification if its even possible with hosted installs or if it only works with accounts.

    Hi Joel - Can you send us the url to your forum and the url to your gadget? You can do it by email if you'd prefer: mark at

    Sure thing Mark, I'll send it via email since it's a private forum for the most part.

    For the record, Joel helped us fix this bug. The fix has been committed to our unstable branch and will be in our next release. You can check it out here:

    In order to get your Gadget working, open plugins/embedvanilla/class.embedvanilla.plugin.php and change line 116 to:

    <script type=\"text/javascript\" src=\"".Asset('plugins/embedvanilla/remote.js', TRUE)."\"></script>
