      A non-typical support request came in not long ago about embedding code … a bit shouty and angry

      Relentlessly trying to add paypal donate button to website and the HTML code (Ed. does) not work:

       

      <form action=”https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr&#8221; method=”post” target=”_top”>
      <input type=”hidden” name=”cmd” value=”_s-xclick”>
      <input type=”hidden” name=”hosted_button_id” value=”BLZCKP9FHUX6E”>
      <input type=”image” src=”https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/GB/i/btn/btn_donateCC_LG.gif&#8221; border=”0″ name=”submit” alt=”PayPal – The safer, easier way to pay online!”>
      <img alt=”” border=”0″ src=”https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_GB/i/scr/pixel.gif&#8221; width=”1″ height=”1″>
      </form>

       

      SCREAMING LOUDLY.

      I’m sure I would be able to do it with a plug in but no right to plug in…..

      HELP!!

      Users familiar with running their own WordPress (who will know all the tricks in the trade to regain access to their broken website once a plugin is activated accidentally locks them out) may find that their favourite plugin is not available.

      Alas we don’t make the whole repository available, just a selection.

      Others using their favourite search engine find and try and paste a bit of code, only to find that the editor strips out everything.

      How frustrating.

      Our response

      Limited access to plugins and our No Code policy is a security feature, as most of our users are what you might term … technology averse, let alone want to go anywhere near plugins or straggly bits of code.

      Trusted users can ask to have a bit of innocuous code embedded manually, so if you can tell us exactly where to put it, we will stick it there for you.

      Some users, if they ask very nicely, can add iframes too, but by and large these can be a little tricky to implement.

      1) Your iframe must not serve any non-secure content (non-ssl content breaks)
      2) Your iframe needs to be responsive to work on small devices e.g. mobiles and tablets, by far the most popular way of accessing stuff in the internet
      3) You are serving information that is legitimate and you are telling your users where it is coming from (as we obviously cannot be held responsible for the content).

      OEmbed is offered by most content providers as the safe alternative to iframes, and will render things like video automagically.

      Finally, if you want to request a feature that would benefit the platform as a whole, feel free. We’ll consider all sensible requests, give them a spin first (on our multisite testing platform) and then test it in a live environment (perhaps initially with the user who suggested the feature). What we’ll be considering is whether 90% of the functions work out of the box, with little or no configuration to bamboozle the poor user, there is no hidden payload of problems, the plugin works well in the free version, if the developers use a freemium business model (and we mean really really well without paying extra).
