HTML Component

The HTML component is used for inserting small snippets of code for unique functionality. This allows you to embed external web applications such as Twitter feeds and YouTube videos, etc. on to your page.

The External Feed Component is used for displaying feeds (such as blog rolls, and certain calendar events).

Note, the HTML component is only intended for code snippets, and there is a 4000 character limit on the HTML component to make it easier to maintain.

Tip: To see what your page actually looks like, you need to click on the preview button, and then you need to refresh your browser.
