linking a giveaway in wordpress

  1. I'm trying to post a giveaway on my wordpress site (I have a .com domain but it's a wordpress blog) and it won't let me post the giveaway widget. I thought it was just that I was using wordpress free that I couldn't do it so i bought a domain, yet I'm getting the same issue with my custom domain name.

    the link i'm trying to post is:
    <div id='gumball_d793e170-e580-4837-8f37-baee4af69e3e'></div>
    <script type='text/javascript' src='http://www.getgumball.com/widget.main.js?id=d793e170-e580-4837-8f37-baee4af69e3e'></script>

    what do i do/what can i enter to do this? it's frustrating because all of my friends on blogger can post easily yet wordpress makes it so difficult!

    The blog I need help with is thecarodiaries.com.

  2. That's a JavaScript widget that cannot be used on free hosted WordPress.com blogs as the software will strip the code out for security reasons. http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

  3. I thought it was just that I was using wordpress free that I couldn't do it so i bought a domain, yet I'm getting the same issue with my custom domain name.

    Purchasing a domain changes nothing except the URL. I guess you did not read this prior to purchasing domain mapping.
