Dear Clever Persons,
I have been trying for several hours to install two widgets on my blog (Goodreads & Amazon Associates). Very frustrating.
For example, every time i enter and 'save' my Goodreads 'numeric ID', it vanishes from the sidebar on my WordPress (dashboard > appearances > widgets) page. Also, although the Goodreads box appears on my WordPress blog page proper (http://www.mikeormsby.net), it contains no books, even though there should be 3 titles. Weird.
As regards the Amazon Associates widget, likewise, this does not work either, no matter how many times I try different ways to install it. My sidebar is instead filled with the Amazon code. Lines and lines of it. So much for Amazon's breezy advice about ti being 'easy to install'.
Please advise, if you can. But don't say: 'Just follow the easy instructions' on WordPress/Amazon/Goodreads pages, because I did. They do not help.

The blog I need help with is mikeormsby.net.
