Help - I'm using Blogger and I can't see my widget!

Reading these directions will help! If you're having trouble seeing your Rafflecopter widget on your Blogger blog, you've come to the right place. 9 times out of 10, these steps below will help you figure out why your widget isn't appearing:

  1. First, when adding your giveaway to your post, make sure that the Rafflecopter widget code is placed in the ‘Edit HTML’ editor, not the ‘Compose’ editor.

  2. If you're trying to view the widget in 'preview' mode, you’ll have to refresh the preview page twice. Much like when you embed a YouTube video, the Rafflecopter widget doesn’t appear in preview mode the first time you view the preview page. When you paste the Rafflecopter widget in the 'text' tab, don't expect to see the widget when you switch over to the 'Compose' tab, either. 

  3. Check to see that you have the most up to date version of blogger. 

  4. If you’re using blogger’s ‘dynamic view’, this setting unfortunately doesn’t allow users to post HTML/javascript. Here’s a blog post that details this issue and other downsides of blogger’s ‘dynamic view'.

  5. If you're using IE7 or IE8, check out this article here about compatibility issues you might run into and how to stop it.

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 ‘HTML’ tab again and immediately publish the post.
