What's up with LOTRO Server Status widget and error message?:
The LOTRO server status widget is currently unavailable. It can be removed through the control panel.

My guess is they made a change to their site (the one we get the data from).  We will look info this.

I figured something along those lines. I don't understand why Turbine won't support server status. Codemasters supported it from day one.

Hey Aaron & Sandy!

I was in communication with Galdorad, the guy with the LotRO server status site, and I got him to set up an XML feed a while back. I didn't pursue it because GuildPortal added a server status widget. But if you are having problems now you can use it... the format to get the XML information is as follows:
http://status.warriorsofnargathrond.com/activity/external.php?status={server name, server name, server name, etc}
so essentially like this:
http://status.warriorsofnargathrond.com/activity/external.php?status=Firefoot,Riddermark
Or completely leave off the server names for a complete list.

A status of "2" means the server is up and "1" means it's down.

Thanks for the link to the new Lotro Server Status!

I used the embed page widget with this link: http://status.warriorsofnargathrond.com  to get the servers to display.  Bit of a lag on page load but at least the server list shows.  I restricted the page size (@300) to get a slider bar to show and to keep the box tidy.

YMMV
