    I am trying to copy and paste the subcription code onto the text widget !

    this is the original code-

    <form style=”border:1px solid #ccc;padding:3px;text-align:center;” action=”http://www.feedburner.com/fb/a/emailverify” method=”post” target=”popupwindow” onsubmit=”window.open(‘http://www.feedburner.com’, ‘popupwindow’, ‘scrollbars=yes,width=550,height=520’);return true”>Enter your email address:<input type=”text” style=”width:140px” name=”email”/><input type=”hidden” value=”http://feeds.feedburner.com/~e?ffid=567793″ name=”url”/><input type=”hidden” value=”Critics Corner.” name=”title”/><input type=”submit” value=”Subscribe” />Delivered by FeedBurner</form>

    But in the text box it shows up like this:

    <form action=”http://www.feedburner.com/fb/a/emailverify” method=”post” target=”popupwindow”>Enter your email address:Delivered by FeedBurner</form>

    As a result my blog doesn’t show the email text box.

    What do I do?? I checked the wordpress FAQ and I followed the exam same technique!

    That’s not what the faq says – I think you got the wrong link at FB.

    Forms are not allowed and are removed from user input. They’re a security risk that puts everybody else’s blog here at risk.

    You may want to do a search of the forums as I believe we’ve discussed a workaround in the past. (ie do a link to feedburner’s website and have them subscribe there)
