    I'm escalating this to our backend team. You have over 2500 characters to the widget and the limit could be the reason or something had been changed to the widget that is causing this. 

    Our developers would update this thread for their finding and resolution.

    Thank you for reporting!

    Hi Welvin,

    I've tested this and it turns out to be true. Taking out characters get's the widget working.

    I now have a serious problem cause this is a running enquiry for the Dutch government. The widget worked fine for weeks, with data coming in, but now there suddenly seems to be a character limit. Can this limitation be get rid of ASAP?

    Kindly request your urgent help!

    Meanwhile I got the widget running by removing some options in the widget. So it's not urgent anymore, but I'm still somewhat displeased as you might understand.

    Hi, all of the 502 gateway error problems for this widget should be fixed. We recently updated our widget core to support longer options/text for this widget. Please confirm if it works from your end otherwise report back so that we can further investigate the problem.

    Thank you!
