About Code from External Sources

  1. The web is full of paste-it-yourself code from providers such as YouTube, Vimeo, Blogger, etc. Simple searches can find audio or video players, photo galleries, translators, and just about anything else you can imagine.  We encourage site users to explore the possibilities.
  2. Keep in mind that any code pasted into an HTML block will be in the "body" section of the page. Accessing the "head" section of a page may require Elexio's involment. For assistance, go to the Account Help Center and open a Support Request.
  3. Elexio does not provide support for HTML code you have placed on your site.
  4. IMPORTANT NOTE: if embedding an external form, (anything which uses a form tag - <form></form> ) make sure to check the box entitled 'Display in iFrame'. Failure to do so will render your page uneditable.
