    How to insert HTML code on Website Builder

    Hi,

     

    I want to add expandable text to my website.. pretty simple I would think.

     

    I added the following html to the page I want it on

     

     <head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.css">
    <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
    <script src="https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.js"></script>
    </head>
    <body>

    <div data-role="page" id="pageone">
      <div data-role="header">
        <h1>Collapsible Sets</h1>
      </div>

      <div data-role="main" class="ui-content">
        <div data-role="collapsibleset">
          <div data-role="collapsible">
            <h3>Click me - I'm collapsible!</h3>
            <p>I'm the expanded content.</p>
          </div>
       </div>
      </div>

      </div>

    </body>

     

    Nothin is happening... i'm thinking it is because the following code should be entered somewhere else within website builder...  The problem is I have no idea where....

     

     <head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.css">
    <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
    <script src="https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.js"></script>
    </head>

     

    Is there anyone on here that can help me??  This is my first time with godaddy and the first time in a very long time that I have been coding.

     

    Any help would be very greatly appreciated

    Re: How to insert HTML code on Website Builder

    Hello Smiley Happy is there any way of adding HTML into a site made the in latest website builder?

    I've searched for guides and can only find different versions, i have no "left hand toolbar" or options for adding anything to any page under the 3 lines button that has settings etc.

    hope there is something i can do as this is a huge restriction to what can be added Smiley Sad

    Thanks.

    If you are referring to GoCentral, no, there is no way to add HTML.   Apparently GoDaddy is looking at adding this functionality in future releases but no ETA as of yet.

    How about editing the existing HTML? Or simply changing image sizes?

     

    I've got my site mostly set up the way I'd like, but a few of the stock image sizes are screwing me up. If I could get in and change "rs=w:1136,h:568" to "w:2272,h:1136" I'd be golden.

     

    Having the gallery pop up the larger uploaded version of an image would do the trick, also.

    GoCentral is a bare-bones "brochureware" website platform that is what it is.

     

    For those who want to do some fiddling and tweaking maybe look at Managed WordPress hosting.  You have the convenience of themes and established layouts without having to "know code", plugins to enhance functionality and access to files to tweak the CSS.

    Re: How to insert HTML code on Website Builder

    So I played around in GoCentral and created a basic website, but now I know I should go to WordPress.  Do I have to start all over again?  Or can I get to my new website (within the godaddysites.com domain) and just start using WordPress?  (If so, how?)

    Yeah, you have to start over.  You can signup for GoDaddy Managed WordPress hosting and use the temporary URL.  This means you can work on your WordPress site while the domain is still on the live GoCentral site.  

     

    You can then config your theme and plugins to get everything the way you like.  Then copy-n-paste the content you have in GC over to the new WordPress install.  When you are ready to go live with the new WordPress site, you assign your domain to that new install.

    Re: How to insert HTML code on Website Builder

    Me too! I will need to rebuild my new website on another platform if the HTML feature isn't added soon! It is very restricting. Their excuse is that people only need a very basic wesbite. Having HTML is very basic - we just copy and paste the plugins - no programming is required. Please release me....

    Re: How to insert HTML code on Website Builder

    Hello 'member's of the community',

    Anyone know why my HTML code is not working when I try to insert the code into GoDaddy website builder? I've used this code for my other website and it works, but it's not working for GoDaddy. Anyone with this expertise can help me?

     

    Thank you

    @EIS-NB,

     

    You can't add your own code.....

    speak with support for further instructions. 

    Re: How to insert HTML code on Website Builder

    Yeah, honestly, now knowing that godaddy doesn't support custom HTML, i'm going to be cancelling my account.

    This is highly disappointing and there is no need for this to be the way it is in the year 2017. 

    An absolute joke.

    Hey @FKDemetri,

     

    Apologies for any confusion that may have been caused. We've actually had continual updates for GoCentral over the past few months; one of which included the expanded functionality of adding custom HTML content as explained in our article here.

    Go Daddy says you can. It's just how they say.

    Re: How to insert HTML code on Website Builder

    Im also trying to use a custom HTML code and there is an option and my code is not showing up in the section. I know my code works as I have used it on other sites. Is this feature just not working yet?

    As of Sept. 20, you can use HTML in GoCentral / New Website Builder!

    Here' the Help article that explains how:

    Re: How to insert HTML code on Website Builder

    I am submitting feedback on the Beta HTML section and Website Builder functionality. 

     

    Request:   As we can't edit underlying code for a given "section, " add a drag and drop style method for resizing section height and pictures.  

     

    Feedback: 

     

    For example, the template I chose has a right side graphic in the "About" section.   If I don't put in blank spaces into the "Header Paragraph" above, there's no gap between the store icon/image and the About Section image.   It would be cleaner from a user's POV to pull down the bottom edge of the header or resize the image to add white space.   Instead, I had to figure out how to "cheat" the system.

     

    This sizing issue really bugs me and crops up big time if you add in an HTML code section.  I put one at the bottom of the "Contact Us" section to display the Better Business Bureau logo. The logo code works as expected, you can hover or touch the logo button to see high-level stats and launch the BBB business page.   

     

    Unfortunately,  the  HTML section creates a HUGE block of background aand a slider next to the BBB button, which is totally ugly and useless.   The code it isn't a block of text!  Speaking of useless, the Fixed Height box seems to adjust the size of the slider,  I can't resize this "text box" to get it to disappear.  It's truly annoying and otherwise ruins the template design. 

     

    It would be better if the Fixed Height box adjusted the size of the HTML section and NOT include a  text box slider bar by default.   Even better would be the ability to add HTML to any section on a page or to the list of options available for Site Settings (Like Google Analytics and Translate.)

     

    IMHO

    I'm all for simple.  I know how to code and would prefer not to.  I liked the GoDaddy template because it complemented my company branding.   I can live without a huge amount of bells and whistles.  Personally,   I thought Wordpress and many of the free tools were overkill for what I really need and would take more learning than I have time to fuss with.  That said,  a few more abilities to adjust layouts would be appreciated.

    they cut a deal with Google (AdSense)...don't want people using competing tools (Commission Junction) to be able to easily copy/paste affiliate marketing HTML/Javascript (links/banners) into their hosted sites.  A little monopolistic...which is why the open source will eventually overtake the Google's and GoDaddys

    @mgmNational,

     

    Where exactly are you inserting your code?...

    Are you inserting your code in Custom HTML Section? or in site-wide code...

    I don't think you can use HEAD and BODY tags in custom HTML section...

    Looking forward to hear from you...

    Hi Praveen,

     

    Thank you so much for responding to me.

     

    I have inserted the html code into the page section... the custom HTML section.

     

    When I remove the /header and /body sections… all I get is the list but it is not collapsible.  Should I have something else set up to recognize the html data-role, etc.

     

    Thanks

    Colleen

    Re: How to insert HTML code on Website Builder?


    Your code works, which means its not entered properly on the GoDaddy side. You can also copy and paste that into a .txt file and see if you can load the custom code that way too. Generally, custom code abilities in code builders inject it... meaning you may not need the <head> or <body> tags, but not sure how GD does it.

    This is proof your code works, so your issue is GD side.
