So I noticed in the forum that someone asked about putting something in the widget but wordpress editing it. I have run across something like this. I was going to add a widget from blogcatalog that shows recent viewers as well as one that was from petfinder that showed available animals. I saw something about certain things being not allowed like flash, which by the way, I have no idea what that is. So my question is really verifying that maybe what I’m trying to add to my sidebar is actually a restricted thing or not. What do you think?
Basically the best way to find out if a widget works is just to try it. Nothing will break if it doesn’t work.
There are also several threads in the Off-Topic forum on different widget codes you can use here that have been tested. Try doing a search for “Codes for WordPress” and you should find a couple.
Thanks raincoaster. Even though I may not be able to have some of what I want on my page, at least I know I’m not losing my mind when what I try and save in a text widget and it dissapears.
