Yes, you can insert HTML snippets inside a text area or even a table and thus structure the content of your site much better. Open your Text and Image editor and position the cursor where you would like to have the snippet. Click on the HTML icon on the formatting toolbar and an HTML box will appear in your text.

My site has stopped functioning properly after I inserted an HTML Snippet.

Faulty code placed in the HTML Snippet may result in:

  • Java Script errors on the page
  • inability to load all page elements
  • missing Control Panel icon and Publish option
  • even problems logging into the Admin View of your website

If you can access the Admin View and the editing functions are properly working, try commenting the code in the HTML snippet(s). When commented, the script is not active and any possible errors or problems caused by it should stop. To comment the code in an HTML snippet you will need to place it between the beginning tag tag as follows: .

Once the problem is identified as caused by the code in a particular snippet you can further debug or remove it. 

If you can't access the Admin View of your site due to severe problems caused by code inserted in an HTML Snippet, please Contact us using the Help button in your website Admin for further assistance.
