I know the HTML code is correct because I am embedding it from another website. Please help! The blog I need help with is reign2012.com.

Then copy and paste this code below without making any changes into text widget. <a href="http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rymonda/reign-fall-winter-2012-collection-launch/widget/card.html">Support Me at KickStarter</a> March 1, 2012 at 2:23 am #835487 rymondaMember Thanks so much!!

That’s why the code you’re trying to use is stripped out when you save.
