HTML Widget

Expand the capabilities of the website builder with custom HTML. This widget allows you to embed custom code into your site, and can be used to embed third-party widgets such as videos, contact forms, and more.

While adding custom code can extend your site's functionality, we recommend you only add code from a trusted source. Only add code if you know exactly what it does and how to troubleshoot it if it does not work.

To learn more about using HTML in Developer Mode, see Developer Mode.

To add the widget:

  1. In the left panel, click Widgets.
  2. Click and drag the HTML widget into your site.

To learn more about adding widgets to your site, see Add Widgets.

  • **We cannot troubleshoot custom code! **
  • Server-side scripts (for example, PHP and ASP) will have no effect in this widget. We recommend using client-side (Javascript, HTML) scripts only.
  • We recommend creating a backup of your site before adding custom code to it so that you can reload a previous version if something goes wrong.
  • Our editor uses HTTPS, so if your script loads an external non-HTTPS file, it will not work.
  • Our system uses jQuery 3.0 to function, so implementing a new version of the jQuery library will usually cause our editor to stop working. For this reason, we recommend that any custom code you add use the functions in jQuery 3.0 and not attempt to re-initialize the library.
  • While Quick Navigation is on, onload events may not condition properly. If your script uses these, please turn off Quick Navigation as a first troubleshooting step.

Add Connected Data

You can insert fields from a collection or the Content Library into the HTML widget, and use the widget in your dynamic pages. This is helpful when you want to include an HTML widget in your dynamic pages without having to store all of the HTML code in the collection. Instead, only the unique data or ID is stored in the collection.

For example, if you want to embed an element in your Dynamic Page – a podcast from SoundCloud, an external calendar or any customized code – and you want it to be different in each dynamic page, you can store the ID in your collection and embed the code in the HTML widget. For more information, see Connected Data.

To add connected data:

  1. Right click the HTML widget and select Edit Content.
  2. Paste your HTML code into the field, then remove the URL slug (end of the URL) from the code and save it for later.

  3. Click Update.

  4. On the top bar, click Edit Row.

  5. Paste the URL slug you saved in step 2 into the Section Paragraph field.

  6. Right click your HTML widget to open the context menu and click Edit Content.

  7. Click Connect, then select the data field you want to connect the widget to.
  8. Click Copy to Clipboard, then paste the copied content into the section of code where the URL slug was before you removed it in step 2.

  9. Click Update.

Once your HTML widget is successfully connect to the data in the Content Library, it is marked with a blue Connected Data () icon.
