Oftentimes a need arises to insert HTML content into a web page. You might want to add a Facebook or Twitter widget directly to a home page, or embed a Google map into an information page, or display the weather forecast from Accuweather in a prominent location. Even if you don't quite understand much about HMTL code, you'll find it easy to add it to your site.

Whether you want to compose script yourself, or just paste a snippet provided by a third-party, the first thing to do is to open the text editor for the area in which the HTML code should go. You will notice in the top row of the toolbar area, to the very left, a button titled "Source." Just click this and your editor area will transform into an HTML-editing textarea.

If you're working with an already-blank section, all you need to do is paste your copied HTML, or begin composing. If, however, you already have content in the section which should be preserved, you will need to locate the correct position for your custom code. (*NOTE: if you are inserting HTML into current content, you might want to copy/paste the existing text before inserting the new code) After pasting/typing code, click the "Save" button and you'll be able to see how your browser renders the code.

It is possible to have some serious rendering problems when performing this action. Usually these issues are due to not copying the entirety of the provided code, or not pasting correctly. If you see an error, and you can't pinpoint exactly where you went wrong, the Finalweb support team will be more than happy to assist you in any way they can.
