html/sidebar widget probs

  1. I was given code for my sidebar when I was on blogger that worked there, but I just copied it to my sidebar here and parts are missing. I don't know how to fix it, so am hoping somebody here can help!

    First, so you can see what it's supposed to look like, it's the "current script status" in the sidebar on the right:

    http://guiltyofbeing.blogspot.com/

    And when I put it here on wordpress, if you scroll down you'll see it looks like this:

    http://planetpooks.wordpress.com/

    This is the code:
    <!-- Begin Status Bar Code -->

    <!-- Title -->

    <span class="prog-text">audrey & sebastian
    save the cat prep</span><br>

    <div class="prog-border">

    <!-- Status Percent -->
    <div class="prog-bar" style="width:94%;" align="center">100%</div>
    </div>

    <span class="prog-text">audrey & sebastian</span><br>

    <div class="prog-border">

    <!-- Status Percent -->
    <div class="prog-bar" style="width:5.45%;" align="center">14.5%</div>
    </div>

    Thanks in advance!

  2. CSS style and Javascripts are stripped for security reasons. This is covered in the FAQ at the head of these forums. Please note that Blogger has a history of being hacked due to their allowance of having their users being able to input their own javascripts and css style. You'll note that it was removed from your post up above as well.

  3. Um, darn. I've asked a similar question before, because now I remember the answer.

    Is there a way to create a status bar such as the one I had on blogger without using javascript and css? (Or is this something I could add back if I paid to upgrade?)

  4. What is a status bar?
    How does it function?
    What information does it provide you and your readers?
    I could be wrong but without that information I don't think anyone could answer your question.

  5. Sorry -- I can link to a couple if that helps?

    One is in the sidebar here:

    http://guiltyofbeing.blogspot.com/

    "Current Script Status"

    It's a status bar that shows what percentage of a project is complete.

    Another is here, in the sidebar:

    http://www.unknownscreenwriter.com/

    (It may be the same code, for all I know.)

  6. Timethief, I would suggest taking a look at the websites the poster mentions. Then you would see what he or she is talking about.

    Only thing I can think of is creating the bars manually with an image editor and adding them directly into a text widget.

    Good luck,

  7. @drmike
    I've looked at the websites *now*. At the point he/she was asking the coding questions he/she hadn't revealed them yet.

  8. timethief -- I put the URLs in my first post, but they may have been difficult to notice with all the code.

    Dr. Mike -- if I upgrade to CSS can I use this?

  9. OOPS! now I see them - because they weren't actually linked I didn't before. I'm sorry :( [said she blushing]
