    You probably have a “curly quaotes” issue. Do not change anything on the code below just copy it and paste it into a text widget.

    <a id="ftwtranslation_button" style=”border:0;" href="http://free-website-translation.com/"><img src="http://free-website-translation.com/img/fwt_button_en.gif" alt="Website Translation Widget" /></a>

    Alright we are getting close! I did copy the code above exactly and pasted it into the widget. It came up as the button this time but does nothing when I click on it………..

    Did I lose you? I have tried doing this in both a text widget and a page. The results were the same both times. A pretty button appears now but there is no actual link. Clicking on the button does nothing. I appreciate all the time you have spent helping me and thank you if you can share just a little bit more of your wisdom on this.
    Thank you,

    I don’t understand why it does not work for you and don’t know how to help you.

    Well I figured out why the button does not work but I do not know how to fix it. When I paste it in it is exactly as you typed it. But when I hit save the computer updates and strips out part of the code. Going from this:
    <img src=”http://free-website-translation.com/img/fwt_button_en.gif” alt=”Website Translation Widget” />
    to this:
    <img src=”http://free-website-translation.com/img/fwt_button_en.gif” alt=”Website Translation Widget” />
    Is there any solution to this?
    Thank you

    I don’t have a solution so hopefully another Volunteer or Staff will have one.

    Does part of the code include Flash, Javascript, or iframes? If so, we can’t allow it here for security reasons.

    That was what I read but it was my understanding that this button was set up so that it would not be a problem for wordpress. I do not wish to use anything inappropriate here but I am setting up a website for a non profit in town and they feel it is vitally important to have some kind of translation option on the site. If the button I have is not a viable choice no problem. But what should I do in its place? What is the best way to get the site translated for those in need?
    Thank you for your time!

    There are two different types of WordPress. While it may not be a problem for the self-hosted and self-installed WordPress.org, it’s probably not allowed at WordPress.com.

    Where exactly are you getting the code from?

    This is the code in my text widget:
    <a id="ftwtranslation_button" style=”border:0;" href="http://free-website-translation.com/"><img src="http://free-website-translation.com/img/fwt_button_en.gif" alt="Website Translation Widget" /></a>

    Ah, try just this instead:

    <a href="http://free-website-translation.com/"><img src="http://free-website-translation.com/img/fwt_button_en.gif" alt="Website Translation Widget" /></a>
