    Hello guys! Our site is working great and I have just one issue I believe someone of web beckground can answer.

    I have a simple countdown ready to embed as HTML in our homepage widget area (right under the slider basically) But when I drop the code its not registering correctly. Here is the link to the countdown I’m referring to. Would you be able to guide me as to what im missing… this there some name brackets that need to be added for the widget to accept the embed? Thank you so much for your time and hopefully this is something you can help with.

    The blog I need help with is parkerhousenj.com.

    Hello,
    Thank you for using tdEditor theme!

    The reason why your code does not work is because it includes the javascript which cannot be added to WordPress.com sites due to the security reasons: https://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

    Thanks,

    Ahhh ok I understand Taras! Is there a suitable countdown clock that I can use? The basic WordPress widget isn’t exactly a visual countdown clock that were looking for and I was hoping to embed something easily like I do with other services and Google. Do you know anyway I can make something like this work?

    Thank you for your time!

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, I do not know any visual countdown clocks that can be embedded to the widget area. I am afraid that mostly all countdown clocks include javascript, so they cannot be used on WordPress.com.

    Also, please see this post: https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/countdown-timer-widget?replies=7

    Thanks,
