I recived a e-mail asking me if posting javascript in blogposts is actually After Amit Agarwal and other people blogged about it recently.

The answer is a overcomplicated Yes/No.

Yes, becuase there is nothing actually wrong with posting JS code into a post, it will work out ok.


No, because the problem is not running code in a post the problem comes when they are all running at once in the main, it will screw up the blog 90% of the times unless you:

A)You really really know what are you doing.
B)The code is of a very simple variety.
C)You got a main page with less than 5 posts in it.

So, that is the reason this warning is on your Blog post editor when you try to do it:



It will also show up with unclosed HTML, or any really malformed code,and this are the kind of warnings that you really must pay atention to.

So,in my opinion:

Don´t post trivial JS code in posts that later you have to remove post by post.

Do it when you are sure it is worth it and safe to do so.
