Why won't a Kickstarter widget load on my blog? Title appears but not the pic.
WP doesn’t allow embed codes (except from sources they collaborate with), for security reasons. Workaround here:
hi juspi, thanks for the reply.
I’m confused, because I was able to embed html code to get a KS widget last year when I ran a campaign. It’s just a widget to take you to the KS site, btw, not a video.
If you’re talking about this post:
then you did not embed any widget! The embed code was stripped out and all that was left was a linking image plus the URL of the widget. THe widget would have been this:
no, I mean I really got the widget on there last year! (you can’t see it anymore cuz I took it down after my campaign was over. (in case i’m not using the right words, have a look at my website home page: katherineferrier.net. THAT’s what I’m trying to get onto my wordpress blog.)
so, somehow I did it last year, but cannot get it to work this time.
i tried to use your workaround suggestion, but i think it’ over my head. :~
anything for dummies out there?
hey…first, thanks so much for taking the time to help me! I appreciate it!
so, here is the code that KS gives:
<iframe frameborder=”0″ height=”380″ src=”http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/katherineferrier/cultivate-2012-growing-the-dance-scene-in-northern/widget/card.html” width=”220″></iframe>
the workaround you gave me looks like it’s for video. do you know if it would work also for this widget?
1. That’s an iframe: as I’ve already mentioned, iframes can’t be used on wordpress.com.
2. Yes I do know (that is, I checked it): nope again…
