    Can anyone teach me how to embed Vimeo widget on my sidebar? I tried a text widget, but it doesn’t show my Vimeo video list. I appreciate your help.

    The blog I need help with is cinemaforumfukushima.org.

    You have to use the vimeo [shortcode] (and type it into the HTML tab in the editor) as explained here. http://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/vimeo/#embedding-with-a-shortcode
    Note that it’s the width and height attributes that are important as the video must “fit” into the sidebar width of your theme.

    Soory I posted that first line above as if your were embedding into a post ot page when in fact you will be putting the [shortcode] required into a text widget.

    We cannot use JavaScript widgets on free hosted WordPress.com blogs. Capture the badge image and save it to your computer. Then upload it into your blog and link it to your member page on vimeo and display it in your sidebar in a text widget.

    I have a paid blog “Elemin Theme.” Is it still possible?

    Purchasing a premium theme doesn’t change other than changing the theme. Upgrades here are specific – you get only what you pay for and nothing more. There is no upgrade that will allow you to use JavaScript or to do anything beyond what’s stated here: WordPress.com vs WordPress.org: The Differences

    Thank you for all the information.

    You’re welcome and I’m sorry my workaround wasn’t suitable for you. Best wishes with your blog.

    I’ve tried typing the vimeo url into the post, but it merely displays as text. What is my idiotic mistake? I’ve tried it as plain text in the HTML tab, set it in [ ], in < >, but it doesn’t work.

    Thanks.

    Let’s start with you posting an active link starting with http:// to the blog in question and then we will work from there.

    Rightm so it’s a private blog and we Volunteers cannot see what you have done. The instructions for using the vimeo shortcode are found here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/vimeo/#embedding-with-a-shortcode

    Oh, right. Sorry again. Didn’t realize you were Vols, and thought you could bypass that. I’ve taken the privacy off for a while, so you can take a look, if you get a chance. The frustrating thing is that I thought I was following the instructions on the link you just sent (thanks for that, incidentally), but clearly I’m not, somehow.
    Again, thanks for any help, thoughts, whatever.
