I am trying to embed a code on my blog and i used to be able to do it , but i have tried and it will not work.

What i am doing is opening up a new post and clicking the HTML and then pasting the code and then clicking the HTML bottom again and nothing is happening.

What am i doing wrong?

Hi Thailea,

I think that this may be a bug.

What I suggest is to add all your text first then add the HTML code subsequently and then save without toggling the HTML button. I don't know if this will work but it certainly used to.

The blog is very problematic with issues like this and the fix for such problems is a low priority with Yola. For that reason I'm holding off adding or amending blog posts.

Yola are recommending that users switch to another blog platform (eg: WP, Blogger and others) and presumably bring it in to your site with an iframe or use Tumblr as a resident widget. Unfortunately we can't convert Yola blogs to any other as Yola have blocked all export previously available.

I wish this wasn't the case but that's the reality I guess.
