Blog post with HTML code

Hi!

I know how to add HTML codes to normal pages and even how to put it onto a blog page outside of a post. But my problem is putting the code into an actual post. When I type my post I see a HTML button but I am not sure how that will help me. I have codes that have text that should appear, but when I use that HTML button it does nothing and just pasting the code into my post gives me the coding and not the text that accompanies it.

I hope I am making sense!

Hi Katie,

You are making sense!

If you want to add HTML to your post you can, you can click the little HTML icon on the edit toolbar and paste in your code, then if you click the HTML icon again you will see how it renders in the plain text of the post.

However, if you are adding javascript, it will not work. So if it is javascript, this is why you are not seeing it rendering properly.

If this doesn't cover your question, can you tell us your url and we can have a look at the post with the code you have added.

Kind Regards,
Emmy
