    I have manually entered a “text” widget with this code:

    [content not safe for the CHILDREN who view this forum has been removed]

    But for some reason, instead of leading to the [porn link removed] link, it is leading to en.wordpress.com/types-of-blogs. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Here is what the sidebar code looks like in my source page:

    [content not safe for the CHILDREN who view this forum has been removed]

    What’s even more strange is that it is doing this same redirect in the basic link as well, not just the banner.

    This part inexplicably disappeared when I published my original comment:

    <div class=”textwidget”>

    If affilate sales and ads are important to your site, you will have to find alternate hosting and move your blog off WordPress.com.

    If you do require an ecommerce site, advertising and/or affiliate links you can hire a web host and get a free software install from http://wordpress.org Refer to > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    I read the TOS and my links don’t violate that.

    Yes they do. Affiliate links to sex toy sites in widgets in the sidebar most definitely are not welcome at WordPress.com. You will have to find a new host or give up on that idea.
