HTML in Text widget

  1. Hi there,
    I want to copy a HTML code into a text widget. but when I press the save button a part of the code disappears, so the banner I want to add to my blog does not appear on my site. does anyone has a clue why this happens?

    Isy

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

  2. What is the code? You can place it here between backticks:
    backtick code backtick (or highlight it and select the code tag above the comment box)

    Some codes are forbidden on WordPress.com and will be automatically stripped out. If you are trying to use one or more such codes, it will not work:

    If you are familiar with HTML, you’ll notice that codes such as embed, frame, iframe, form, input, object, textarea and others are missing from the above list. Those codes are not allowed on WordPress.com for security reasons. from: http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

  3. thanks a lot tess,
    I think my code isn't allowed. its a banner for my Dawanda shop. well I can live witout it. ;-) at least now I know where the problem is.

  4. Do they offer a plain image? You could then use the image to link to the other site in a text widget.

  5. I am new to wordpress and everything was working well till i got to a text widget i am trying to verify my wordpress website for an affiliate company i am going to be working with they tell me to copy and paste this code into the widget text but when i do that and save it, its not showing up on my page.

    The text is <div id="pct-site-verification" style="display: none;">yvdvs4pmk81f35th5v264ln46k6229ht342p2u9r5js</div>

    I look at the Dashboard and it does show there are 8 widgets including my text one but i am still not seeing it. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Is this authorized? Thanks.

    my website is http://beersteinandshotglasses.com

    I'm trying to add my paypal link to my page. I've done it many times before but now part of the code is disappearing and the actual link won't show up. What am I doing wrong?

    What do I do with that code you listed? I put it in my page but it disappears. Are you saying that I can't use paypal on my wordpress site? I have paypal links in a few other posts/pages from last year and they seem to work but I can't get paypal in any new posts/pages.
