I am using GeneratePress and I have the premium add-ons. I have tried to put a text widget into my header. The widget prompt says I can add arbitrary HTML code. However, the HTML code for my banner never shows up when I publish. Cannot I not add my own HTML code?
I just discovered that my problem is related to the browser. I normally use Chrome. When I view my site with Firefox and IE, I see the banner correctly. I will be glad to troubleshoot this myself now, unless someone already has a chrome browser fix.
Problem solved. I had ad blocking extensions added to Chrome (so long ago, I had forgotten about it). I have not seen banners blocked before, but I was able to white list my site and all looks good now.
