    Hi,

    Why can I never get a HTML code to work in my sidebar?
    I paste the code in, and as soon as I save it, it changes/shortens the code and just a sjort line of code (totally out of place) shows up in my blog.. Im so sick of it!

    What am I doing wrong?

    The blog I need help with is chinabun.wordpress.com.

    I have the same problem. Please help us with any clues to solve this out. Where can I have add html or javascript on wordpress? Thanks beforehand

    Direct use of javascript, flash **, iframes and forms are not allowed here for security reasons.

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

    ** With flash, many times it can be used here using the gigya shortcode. Panos covers the gigya shortcode quite well here. Do note that the gigya shortcode is not officially supported which means it could be pulled if it is abused.

    http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/category/gigya/

    Since this is a multi-user platform we all share the same underlying theme and wordpress files and any bad code, or security issue introduced by a user could bring down a bunch of blogs.

    I am trying to paste the HTML code for a mailchimp sign up box in but the widget just displays the HTML on my blog

    Can you please paste that code here, between <code> and </code>. I think that could be either ‘iframe’ or a javascript code., both are not allowed on WordPress.com. [See above links.]

    There is script in the code, that is not allowed here for security reasons – I think others use mail chimp so they must have a plain html code you can use. Check back at mailchimp – remember there are two different flavors of “WordPress” .ORG & .COM you want code for WordPress.COM

    As @auxclass said, you can’t use this code on WordPress.com. However, You can use a text-link/image-link , that readers can subscribe you via Mail-Chimp.

    The subscribing url is : http://dynamicbusinessstrategies.us2.list- manage2.com/subscribe/post?u=135ab90c26f3ba2a46817f0c7&id=7ef05e

    @auxclass Caption Mike :) You’re already so experienced. BTW, I already knew that the code would be an iframe-code. I asked just to extract the required url.

    PS. @bizzybizexpert That url seems to be broken. I copied the code using my mobile phone, and since whole code wasn’t showing, I made a mistake (I think). You should extract the url with the same way I did. :)
