    When you go to the Write page, at the top of the Write box are two tabs: one says Visual and one says Code. If you click on the Code one you’ll get taken to the HTML editor, which is where you can insert any code you want in a post.

    If you want code in your sidebar, you have to use a text widget under Presentation–> sidebar widgets and you have to be using a theme that allows widgets.

    What code did you want to add? Javascript and forms and some other kinds of code are stripped out for security reasons, as you can read in the FAQ.

    I’m new to WordPress. I’m trying to add some code from http://www.petfinder.com:

    <p><b><color #ff3366=>Click the picture to search for pets in your own zip code. Search by breed, zip code, age, gender, etc.</color></b></p>
    <!--THE FOLLOWING CODE IS COPYRIGHT PETFINDER.COM 2000,2001-->
    <!--YOU MAY FIND UPDATES AND INFORMATION ABOUT THIS FEATURE AT www.petfinder.com/tools/featuredpet/-->
    <!--THE INFORMATION GENERATED BY THIS CODE IS FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY.-->
    <!--PETFINDER FEATURED PET START-->
    <script src="http://fpm.petfinder.com/fp/modpet.cgi?font=Arial&fontsize=2&fontcolor=000000&search=&state=&shelter=&animal=&age=&ref=OS0OuERWR4CWMzG"></script>
    <!--PETFINDER FEATURED PET END-->

    If you look carefully at the code you posted you will see the word “script”. Although javascript is very useful it can also be used in malicious ways. Here at wordpress.com 900,000 bloggers are all working on a shared multi-user blogging platform and that means that if blogger initiated javascripts could be used we could experience breaches of security.

    Blogs are served from {name}.wordpress.com. The WordPress cookie is delivered to any site that ends in wordpress.com. Any Javascript on the page is legitimately allowed to look up cookies that would be sent to the domain it’s served from.

    This means that if you can run Javascript on a hosted WordPress page, you can retrieve the login cookie from another WordPress user, and then pass it to an external site. This is why Livejournal, WordPress, and most other hosted sites disallow Javascript on their pages.

    Hi, I’m trying to insert an html code in a blog entry but I’m confused on why the picture/logo doesn’t come out. What do I have to do?

    Here it is:

    <a href="http://mingle2.com/blog-addiction" style="color: #D64B32; text-decoration: none; display: block; width: 286px; height: 128px; padding-top: 50px; padding-left: 17px; background: url(http://mingle2.com/img/bb/blog_addiction/badge.jpg) no-repeat; font-family: Times New Roman, sans-serif; font-size: 30px;">52%<span style="display: none;">How Addicted to Blogging Are You?</span></a><p><small>Mingle<sup>2</sup> - <a href="http://mingle2.com" style="color: #ccc;">Dating Site</a></small></p>

    The url to the image needs single quote marks around it. And I wonder if there really should be a forward slash between addiction and badge?

    #80765

    Hi atthe404,

    I already put the single quote marks around the code, but nothing happened. Am i doing something wrong?

    Thanks

    Additional info: I could see the image on the visual rich editor when I paste the badge html code, but when I preview the post, the image does not come out. Also, I noticed that when I save the post, the code becomes different?

    You need to post the code into the Code editor. Are you doing that? Just click the tabs on the top of the Write box.

    #80769

    Yup. I posted the code into the code editor

    AAAAhh haaaaa. Is it that padding? Try it without as a test?
    Plus we can not be 100% sure that your code is preciselywhat you have.
    eg is there a space between url and the bracket? There shouldnt be.
    Its going to be something minor and silly. Just need to work thru the possibilities.
    Plus that display:none in the span looks fishy to me. If it is display none it may not show the background either. Just an idea.

    custom style attributes of the Anchor element are getting stripped off by WP filters.

    the code you’ve posted won’t work on .com, it has to be redone .

    see ‘Image Links’ section at: http://faq.wordpress.com/2007/07/01/how-to-write-links/

    Then the easiest thing to do is drop it. Use OK Cupid quizzes, Blogthings, or Quizilla. They work on WP.com.

    I can’t insert html code about my custom cursor.

    You cannot make a custom cursor in your WordPress.com blog. Please read the other thread you started on the same issue.

    You don’t use widgets to change the basic functionality or appearance of the blog. They’re just add-ons in the sidebar.
