Adding HTML (Web Publishing mode only)

While PagePlus’s Web Publishing mode is not intended to support full-fledged HTML editing, it does allow you to add extra HTML code to a page. Using this approach, you can include HTML fragments generated by another application, copied from another web page, or perhaps those you’ve written yourself.

PagePlus inserts a marker into your publication at the location where the HTML code will run. Since you won’t be able to see the effect of the HTML until you preview the exported site, be careful to place the marker correctly. You’ll definitely want to check your web page in a browser! If there’s a problem, double-check the code you entered and its position on the PagePlus page. If you have some grasp of HTML, examine the page source in a text editor such as Notepad or use your browser’s “View Source” mode.

To add HTML code to a page:

  1. Choose Web Object… from the Insert menu and select HTML… from the submenu.

  2. The dialog includes one scrolling field for Header code, another for Body code. Enter one or more HTML code fragments into the appropriate field. To indent lines, press Ctrl+Tab to insert a tab. You can also use Ctrl+C to copy, Ctrl+X to cut, and Ctrl+V to paste via the Clipboard.

  3. (Optional) Uncheck Ignore page position if you’d like the HTML code to be displayed (as RAW HTML) on the whole web page rather than within the placed boundary box containing the fragment.

  4. If the code calls for external files, use the Add button to locate them. Uncheck Embed files in site if you want to keep the file(s) separate from your publication file.

  5. Click OK to close the dialog, then click (or click and drag) with the cursor to place the HTML marker on your page.
