9 times out of 10, this information will help! If you're having trouble seeing your Rafflecopter widget on your WordPress blog, you've come to the right place. These 5 steps below will more than likely help you figure out why your widget isn't appearing:
- First, when adding your giveaway to your post, make sure that the Rafflecopter widget code is placed in the ‘text’ editor... not the ‘visual’ editor.
- Your WordPress user role must be set at an 'admin' or an 'editor' level for you to post unfiltered HTML, which includes the Rafflecopter widget. Admins can view and change user roles in your WordPress dashboard under 'Users'. If you don't have admin or editor access to the blog you're posting on (for example, maybe you're a guest author), you won't be able to post the widget.
If after all of that your widget still doesn't appear, go to the post where you're trying to paste the widget. Delete the code, and save the post. Then, sign into your Rafflecopter account, go to the giveaway you're running, and copy and paste the widget code directly into the ‘text’ tab again and immediately publish the post.
