Using code with iframe in a text widget

  1. Hi, I am pretty new to using WordPress and haven't programmed in about 15 years.

    I am trying to use the following code in a widget:

    <iframe id=”everythingdisc-
    widget” name=”everythingdisc-
    widget” width=”650” height=”600”
    style=”border:1px solid #fff”
    src=”http://www.everythingdisc.
    com/Disc-Personality-Assessment-
    Solutions-Widget-3.aspx”></iframe>

    From what I have read, I understand that this code is not allowed in WordPress? True?

    I also read something that downloading the Easy Iframe loader plugin would allow me to get around this. I did download it and it does not seem to be working, although as I said I am new at this so it may be programmer error.

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    Thanks

  2. I'm sorry but that's an unstable iframe code and as iframe codes are notorious security risks our software will strip the code out.

    Yes it's true http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

    There is no FTP access and no blogger installed plugin capability on any free hosted WordPress.com blogs.

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/

    See here for a full comparison WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org

    There is no upgrade you can purchase here that provides FTP access and the ability to install plugins and or any third party themes. If you want FTP access and to install plugins or third party themes into a site then you will have to hire a web host http://wordpress.org/hosting/ and set up your own WordPress.org install.
