Where can I paste a Yahoo Pipes Badge into my blog?

  1. Hi-

    I use Yahoo Pipes, <http://pipes.yahoo.com&gt;. They have an option re pipe output called "Get as a Badge". To answer "Where will you put this badge?" I can click WordPress, and it says...

    <script src="http://l.yimg.com/a/i/us/pps/listbadge_1.6.js">{"pipe_id":"6b97b98a76d35ef4894182b06e8b30bc","_btype":"list","pipe_params":{"textinput1":"","urlinput1":""}}</script>

    ...with the instructions "Copy and Paste this into your website."

    Well I just signed up for a free WordPress blog, read and searched all the help, and am lost.

    Where can I paste this into my blog?

    Thanks!

  2. We cannot use JavaScript codes on WordPress.com blogs for security reasons.

  3. I don't understand this either. Most other Blogs have this feature.. what are the security reasons? I am also missing the possibility to have my tags in my widgets menu..

  4. WordPress.com is a multuser blogging platform and that means we are all blogging on the same blogging platform which in turn means a single bad script could bring down many blogs. Read the support doc I linked to above please > http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

  5. I am starting to understand... when I was reading the stuff on the support document it said you can embed it as a source code...

    I tried with this javascript but it didn't work. It would just show up as this, and not the actual mini pictures that it is suppose to be.

    [sourcecode language="javascript"]
    <script type='text/javascript' src='http://www.etsy.com/assets/js/etsy_mini_shop.js'></script><script type='text/javascript'>new Etsy.Mini(5808815,'thumbnail',4,3,0,'http://www.etsy.com');</script>
    [/sourcecode]

    Any suggestions on what I am doing wrong?
