Text Widgets Not Working

    My WordPress blog for my site has a few widgets that are not working. Mostly adsense and and ipage affiliate link that is installed using the Text Widget function from the dashboard. I click on widget, then move my text widget over to the Sidebar, install the code, hit save. It saves good and I can see the marker for it on my blog but it doesn’t show the image link. Here is the text entered for the hosting text widget that doesn’t work:

    <img src=”http://www.ipage.com/affiliate/banners/873″ style=”border:0px” alt=”affiliate_link”>

    Here is the code for the adsense unit that doesn’t work either:

    <script type=”text/javascript”><!–
    google_ad_client = “ca-pub-5682574199614696”;
    /* Catalyst Web Designs */
    google_ad_slot = “2036024842”;
    google_ad_width = 125;
    google_ad_height = 125;
    <script type=”text/javascript”

    Here is my blog: http://www.catalystwebdesigns.com/blog/

    The blog I need help with is www.catalystwebdesigns.com.

    when i try to embed code on my text widget it’s not saving the code.[it’s been working til now]

    please advise



    What code?


    <iframe height=’405′ width=’590′ frameborder=’0′ allowtransparency=’true’ scrolling=’no’ src=’http://app.strava.com/runs/11661546/embed/fecded06f45ca7592b1721f7c08af87fa0833e74′></iframe>

    Not on WordPress.com you haven’t. Iframes are stripped out at WordPress.com.


    no really its been working for me the past few months..then the last time i tryed to update it wouldn’t save.

    could strava have changed they’re embed code?



    My code works, had to use an ad plugin but it works now. Also, had adblock on so that weren’t showing up either. Doh!
