    I’ve been trying to put a button from theweathernetwork.com into my side bar. It doesn’t seem to work if I try and put it in as a link or as an RSS feed. I apologize for my ignorance in advance.

    You can’t put javascript on wordpress.com blogs.

    If you’re trying to use an RSS feed, use an RSS feed widget instead of a Text widget.

    Maybe if you told us what the specific code was that you were trying to add in, it would help us help you. :)

    Here’s the script the weathernetwork site gave me:

    <script language=javascript>var LocationID = ‘CAON0383′;</script><script language=javascriptsrc=’http://www.theweathernetwork.com/weatherbutton/wxbutton.js’></script>

    Thanks for your responses and help.

    There are now two threads on the forum on this subject the other one is here in the support forum http://wordpress.com/forums/topic.php?id=3844&replies=5#post-25757

    This is the css customization forum that you’re in. The script above is clearly javascript and javascript is not allowed at wordpress.com for security reasons. This is stated in the pink sticky FAQ’s at the head of the forum http://wordpress.com/forums/topic.php?id=467&replies=2 and in the FAQs blog http://faq.wordpress.com/?s=javascript. Consequently, I think the best you can do at this point in time is submit this to the ideas forum and ask sysadmin to put it on the “wish list”.

    ucaire: that’s javascript so you won’t be able to use it with wordpress.com
