    sorry for posting this again, but someone else’s question got answered. i purchased my domain name through godaddy, and recently paid to certify my domain name with them. they gave me an html code to put on my site, and i tried it in a text widget, image widget, and on a page within a post and nothing seems to work. it was probably a waste of money, but is there a trick to this? thanks.
