    Hi, is it possible to put a script inside a text widget.
    The script is an ebay link http://www.firzt.com/thaikickboxing/ there is the script working correctly. When i put this script inside a widget, it comes out with all funny small boxes that look like tables. Most of it does appear except for the boxes that fill empty spaces.

    the code is. <script language="JavaScript" src="http://lapi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?EKServer&ai=duw.xs%60&bdrcolor=ffffff&cid=0&eksize=11&encode=ISO-8859-1&endcolor=FF0000&endtime=y&fbgcolor=FFFFFF&fntcolor=000000&fs=0&gallery=y&hdrcolor=ffffff&hdrimage=1&hdrsrch=n&img=y&lnkcolor=330033&logo=3&num=25&numbid=y&paypal=n&popup=y&prvd=1&query=coffee+beans&r0=4&shipcost=n&si=arcocoffee%2Cinvalsa%2Cjimmydeboca%2Cdmdever%2Cdbeck316&siteid=0&sort=MetaEndSort&sortby=endtime&sortdir=asc&srchdesc=y&tbgcolor=FFFFFF&tlecolor=330000&tlefs=0&tlfcolor=000000&track=2057682&width=570"></script>

    I also tried enclosing the whole thing inside html, but that changed nothing.

  2. There's no trick to it. If you are the admin, you can paste scripts directly into text widgets. Works fine for me.

    The same thing is happening to me when I paste ebay java script code. What code can I fix to prevent the boxes from showing?

    This works fine in my text widget.

    Make sure your encoding for reading and feeds under options, reading is set for UTF-8. I think that is why you see the small boxes.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I do have UTF-8 under my reading options. Could it be a browser issue? I'm viewing in IE. Do you see the clear boxes on my Ebay sidebar widget?

    When I put your code on my blog it was fine in IE7. Perhaps it is the setting you have that outlines all your sidbar entries?

    Thanks for checking. This is so weird. I can't figure out why it is showing boxes on my sidebar.

    Anyone else have this problem?
