blog rush code

  1. I am trying to get my blogrush code in a text widget and it's not working.
    I also tried an ebay togo code and it doesn't work either.
    I used IE and Firefox, same result on both.

    Thank you,
    Donna

  2. Sorry, you can't have anything with Javascript in it due to security problems..

    Hope that helps. :)

  3. Blogrush is also against the terms of service, as staff have mentioned in the past.

    Did you note Blogrush's FAQs http://www.squidoo.com/blogrush/#module3763112
    Why can't I get the widget to display in my blog at WordPress.com?
    Currently, it can't be done in blogs hosted in wordpress.com. It has to do with some restrictions WordPress.com put in place on 3rd-party javascript. The javascript provided by BlogRush is not executed even if you've added it successfully to your WordPress.com blog template or sidebar widget.

    Here's results from the search box on this wordpress.com forum

    In addition to being javascript which is not allowed at wordpress.com, BlogRush is a viral marketing widget designed to drive traffic to affiliated 3rd party sites and that's not allowed on wordpress.com blogs either. (see section 2, 5th bullet of the ToS http://wordpress.com/tos/)

    Advertising is also not allowed on wordpress.com blogs see http://faq.wordpress.com/2005/12/08/adsense/

    If your intention is to have a commercialized blog to promote your business then IMHO you ought to hire a web host and download free software from http://wordpress.org where such restrictions do not apply

    Thank you for answering.
