Adding iframe Content to Sidebar Widget

Written by  on October 26, 2016 

I’m trying to add an Amazon advertising widget in a WordPress sidebar widget (self-hosted WordPress, v3.1.3). The widget code is basically an iframe.

I’ve tried using the “Text” widget and pasting the iframe code in there, but when I save the widget, the iframe code disappears.

I’ve come across this problem/limitation before and solved it using the IFrame Widget ^(http://www.netaksharee.com/goto/http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/iframe-widget/), but I want to use more than one iFrame in my sidebar, and the IFrame widget only supports one widget at a time.

Am I missing something obvious? Is there a setting somewhere to allow iframe code in the widgets? Or is it normally allowed, and I’ve done something silly to my install? If not, any good workarounds?
