Struggling with a widget

  1. I'm sure it must be me, but I can't solve what seems like an easy problem.

    I want to add the following code to my site:
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://adage.com/power150/badge-generate.php?id=768"></script>

    I've added a text widget and copy/pasted the above code. However, it won't save. Am I wrong to try to put that type of code in a text widget?

    Here's my site: eyecube.wordpress.com
    As you can see, the widget is there (AdAge Power 150) but the dynamic code won't stick. Any help greatly appreciated.

  2. This is javascript. It is not permitted for security reasons. Maybe check that website and see if they offer a plain html option.

  3. Ok, thanks very much. I do think they offer another option. I'll see how that goes.

  4. Here is the other image, but once again I can't make it show up as an image:

    What do I need to add to the above when I put it in a text widget?

    Thanks,

  7. bazaarofdreams,

    Thanks, it got me a lot closer: http://eyecube.wordpress.com/

    Bottom right hand corner. Not perfect, but good enough right now. Bubel, I'll check your link right now.

  8. bubel,

    thanks to you as well. I think I've got it as good as I am going to get it for right now. Still not quite right though.

  9. Are you looking to do anything special with the image?

  10. No, just don't want that grey text widget background.

  11. Unfortunately, that is controlled in the theme's CSS and can only be changed if you purchase the appropriate upgrade (and know how to actually make the changes in the code):

  12. Great. Thanks again.
