Why no java script?

  1. sensibilitypatterns

    I've customized my CSS and gotten my theme looking exactly the way I want it. I am using the template to re-do my regular website's online store, since it is way easier to design in WordPress than to do it from scratch!

    However, I just changed over to a new shopping cart system to get away from having a pop-up cart (which is blocked by many customers' browsers). The new (non-popping) cart requires java script. Why isn't java allowed in WordPress? I'm not putting shopping cart buttons into a widget or sidebar--just straight in the code of each page.

    I'm curious to know if this is a policy with a serious "why" to it, or if it's something WordPress would reconsider -- or if there's already a way to put java buttons into the page that I just don't know about.


  2. Javascript is not allowed here due to security concerns. It is well explained in the FAQ

    Thank you very much. I've suggested adding's java buttons, due to their high security level. Here's hoping! :-)
