form & javascript in blog pot not working (4 posts)

    I have included some JavaScript and a form in my WordPress blog post. The whole thing works great when it's a standalone HTML page, but when I make it a WordPress post the "Highlight" (submit) button doesn't work.

    I suppose the WordPress formatting or markup is breaking things. But I use the text control plugin and my form still doesn't work even when I remove formatting and character encoding.

    How can I get my "Highlight" button to work?

    Below is the working HTML file, followed by the Wordpress blog code (the only difference is that the Wordpress code lacks tags like: <html> <head> </head> <body> </body> </html>)

    Here's the HTML file, try it for yourself:

    And here's the non-working WordPress code:

    Any ideas?

    OK, I've seen that you;ve posted this on the forums as well. Are you an end user over at, an end user on another wpmu platform or a site admin on a wpmu install?

    I've got my own hosting with - just trying to get the Wordpress software to work, not necessarily a specific hosting site.

    Well, if it's WordPress in your own space, you need to be over at as that's the support site for the software. These forums are for WordPress Multiuser, a different package and our answers would be different.
