Trying to post Paypal donation button

    I am raising money using my Paypal account, and I want to post a linked "donate" button in my sidebar. I tried to use the Text/HTML widget, but my code is always stripped. This is what I want to post:

    < form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post" >
    < input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick" >
    < input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="9461384" >
    < input type="image" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_donateCC_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!" >
    < img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1" >
    < /form >

    It's just your basic copy paste code supplied by the Paypal website. What's wrong with it? Is it a security issue?

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

  2. At wordpress.COM you have to use the non-javascript, non-form code as explained in this support document: http://en.support.wordpress.com/paypal/ .
