Is, I hear, causing some of you problems. Thank you for alerting me and also for providing me the detailed error message.
I’m working on it now and I’ll update you as soon as I know something.
Blogspot.com, when you host your blog on their domain (ie peregrinas.blogspot.com) does not allow scripts in the body of its posts. I’m guessing other blog hosting domains are similar. I’ve been told that the script won’t work for WordPress.com blogs or LiveJournal blogs.
They do, however, allow those exact same scripts in your template. That seems silly to me, but I gather the theory is that if you have more than one author, then you can’t control what the other author’s do. Um, yeah, have better settings. Seriously.
I signed up for an account – for test purposes only – at blogspot – and man oh man, the settings alone are… sparse. It’s amazing how little control you have over your own blog when you’re hosted by them. But this is a rant for another day.
The short version of the story is that I’ll have to come up with workarounds.
I’m on it, and I have some ideas. Unfortunately, they all mean more work.
I have two workarounds listed on theFlash Fiction Friday iframes code entry. Please read it and give it a whirl.
I’m still continuing to look for other solutions. Unfortunately, what I can tell you is that if you have a blog hosted by a blog hosting company, your solution won’t be a simple script you can add to your entry in the html view. Don’t blame me – blame the blog hosting company. It’s their restrictions that are causing this.
