Javascript on a .org - Amazon says I can but...

    Was trying to activate an Amazon widget on my site and although I know Java is disabled by WordPress, the Amazon page gave me an option for script that they claimed would work, however, only work on a WordPress.ORG domain. Is it true that .ORG domains are permitted to run JAVA, or is it a special exception with Amazon?

    Thanks for the help!

    The blog I need help with is jeremiahstrong.com.

  2. It has nothing to do with the extension on the domain name. When people talk about a wordpress.ORG site, they are talking about a stand-alone wordpress site that is hosted on a third-party hosting service such as godaddy, bluehost, etc., using the software from wordpress.ORG.

    The Amazon widget would be against the Terms of Service here even if you could place it on a wordpress.COM blog.

    User advertising is, except for a couple very narrow exceptions, not allowed on wordpress.COM. For the exceptions, see the last sentence under "Affiliate marketing blogs" in the bottom set of bullet points in the "types of blogs" link below.
