Here is how you can add a widget or HTML code to your website:
  1. Click Websites Manager in the left navigation menu. Then, click Edit Site.




  2. Click Insert in the top toolbar. Select More from the drop-down menu. Then, select HTML.




  3. The HTML placeholder will automatically go to the upper left corner of your page. Click and drag the element to where you want it on your page.


  4. Then, click Enter or Paste HTML button in the HTML settings on the right.



  5. Remove the current text in the small window and copy in the html code you have for your widget.


  6. Save and Publish your website to see your HTML widget on your website.


Important: You need to use preview mode or publish your site to view your HTML code or widget. You can't see HTML elements in edit mode.

I am interested in enabling my readers to perform some calculations on my web page. Does Sitebuilder offer or accomodate this ability?

I found some information on possibly enabling this at http://www.ehow.com/how_5503148_creat...

Thanks.

In most cases, it's just a matter of embedding some html code into the page. If they provide you with the code, just follow the steps on this thread.

Just do a Google search for "add scrolling text to web page" and you'll find dozens of sites that provide free html code that can be embeded, using the steps posted above.

How to Insert Java Script or HTML at page locations other than the head tag area? Also, Java Script for "asynchrous loading.".


How can I insert a snippet of java script on a page- at the location just before the closing ?

  • 184,698 Points 100k badge 2x thumb
If you want it to go in the body instead of the head, use the steps here. If you want it to be just before the closing, just move it down to the bottom of the page so it's the last thing down. If the html code includes something that is viewable, just position it like any other element on the page, wherever you need it to be seen.

I keep trying to get my html buttons and banners to line up correcly; it is really difficult to add html and not be able to see it as it shoulod appear on the website prior to publishing. I can't understand why homestead makes this experience so difficult! I pay good money for the website - it should be a lot user friendly than it presently is.

When you add your own html code to the page, you'll want to position the top left corner of the html box on the page where you want it to be positioned. If you look at the code itself, the code will almost always dictate the size of the element. You'll have to have a little knowledge of html if you are going to integrate it into the site.

Once upon a time, you suggested using Sea Monkey to make Tables for my website because Sea Monkey will generate the HTML code for me. Considering image sliders, there are quite a few of them around. I am using the image slider in site builder, but not really happy with the quality of the display. More specifically, the images seem to be taking a fraction of a step back for each step forward, that is, they "stutter" a little. So, I would like to implement a better slider on my site. With it in mind that I am capable of implementing "canned code" on my site, and even altering it some to suit my preferences, what site on the internet would you steer me to for getting an image slider that provides really smooth functionality, perhaps transitions between images, and user controls, like the ability to stop/advance the slider? Also, do you have any suggestions for getting better results with site builder's image slider?

One that is gaining popularity is Wow Slider. http://wowslider.com/
I have seen some people install this with success but it might be a little more complex than some others.

As far as using the SiteBuilder image scroller, there is not too much you can do to optimize it other than making sure your image resolution is not to excessive and resizing all of the images to the same dimensions before you import them. If yo do this, and don't use more than 4-5 pictures, it usually scrolls nice and smooth.

Hi,
I'm trying to show my Facebook page as a feed on my Sitebuilder website. Here's a link. You will see that the FB page is partially up there, but I can't make it bigger so it will display my most current posts. I've tried fiddling with the height and width, but that doesn't work. Here's a link to my website so that you can see what I'm talking about.

http://newvwhcsite.homestead.com/~sit...

Do you have any suggestions?

thanks,
Anne

I am not seeing the feed show up at all. Did you publish the page? Also, we can't always troubleshoot 3rd party code. Did you get it directly from Facebook? Usually their code generator will allow you to set the dimensions and i don't see any in the existing code.

Also, here's the HTML code, which has dimensions of 3" wide and 6" high

  • 184,698 Points 100k badge 2x thumb
It looks like you added the code correctly, but I am unable to determine why it's not working correctly. The code has references to, and is dependent on resources not hosted by Homestead, so our ability to troubleshoot 3rd party code is limited. You may need to check with Facebook, or whoever provided you the code.

HELP with ZOHO Contact FORM - HTML.


Need help with HTML code. I have a ZOHO CRM account. Within that tool, they build a custom template for a contact form that once the HTML code is pasted onto the website will create a form and import those details into the CRM. For some reason I can't get it to work? Anyone out there know ZOHO or HTML that can help with this issue? ZOHO is saying it's an issue with my hosting site.

Here is the code the ZOHO Site generates:

Make sure you are using the html box rather than an ordinary text box or other method. If you still have problems, let us know which page and where the html is located so we can look at it.

Yes. Just insert the code as shown above. There are a lot of good free html codes for this. Just search Google for "html code for countdown clock" and you'll probably find dozens to choose from.

PayPal button - drop down menu.


I tried to insert a button from PayPal to my site, however it says that you have to use the HTML part of the site to insert it. I tried that and all that happened is the code itself showed up not the button and then the whole site froze up and I could not do anything. Is there anyone who can walk me through this easy steps from point A to D or whatever. I had the HTML box down where I wanted it, but when I tried to covert it after publishing or saving, it was still the same encrypted code, no button!!

As long as you insert the code as shown here, it should work. If it displays the code instead of the button, make sure you are viewing the live site. If you still see the code, then there's probably something broken in the code, perhaps some of the script didn't copy over. Double check that the full script got copied.

It will really depend on the data source, but, if you search google, there's a good chance you can find some html code you can just copy and paste into a web page using the steps above.
