how to add html to post

  1. I want to add an html link but when I post it to my blog, it doesn't appear as it should. The directions from Amazon say post to my html code, but how do I do this? I click on the html button and then paste but that doesn't work either.

    the link is:

    <iframe src="http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?lt1=_blank&bc1=FFFFFF&IS2=1&bg1=FFFFFF&fc1=000000&lc1=0000FF&t=scotrathewor-20&o=1&p=8&l=as1&m=amazon&f=ifr&asins=0979913438" style="width:120px;height:240px;" scrolling="no" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0"></iframe>

    thanks in advance

    The blog I need help with is scotttraveler.wordpress.com.

  2. Some code such as iframe is not allowed at WordPress.com. See http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/ for details.

  3. I'm afraid we strip out iframes for security reasons:

  4. Please confirm -- there is not an easy way to put Amazon links onto a wordpress.com hosted blog? All information leads to dead ends; Amazon help pages for this are all faulty.
    If so, I need to dump wordpress.com then.
    thanks for any reply

    Please read types of blogs http://en.wordpress.com/types-of-blogs/ and take particular note of this section:

    Affiliate marketing blogs: Blogs with the primary purpose of driving traffic to affiliate programs and get-rich-quick schemes (“Make six figures from home!!”, “20 easy steps to top profits!!”, etc). This includes multi-level marketing (MLM) blogs and pyramid schemes. To be clear, people writing their own original book, movie or game reviews and linking them to Amazon, or people linking to their own products on Etsy do NOT fall into this category.

    Then in regard to posting links take note of the code restrictions tow Staff members have pointed to above.

  6. Short answer: Yes, you need to dump WordPress.com.
