There may be times when you want to use HTML in your WordPress website. For example you may prefer to code a hyperlink by hand, or adjust the header sizes. In this tutorial we will show you how to view/add HTML code to a Page or Post in WordPress.

As per WordPress' official Code support page, Javascript, and other embeds such as Flash are not allowed to be added to a Page or Post in WordPress.

Here is a list of the specific HTML tags that WordPress allows: address, a, abbr, acronym, area, article, aside, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, cite, class, code, col, del, details, dd, div, dl, dt, em, figure, figcaption, footer, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, header, hgroup, hr, i, img, ins, kbd, li, map, ol, p, pre, q, s, section, small, span, strike, strong, sub, summary, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, var

How to Add HTML to a Page/Post:

  1. Login to the Dashboard for WordPress.
  2. In the navigation menu click the Pages or Posts link, depending which one you want to add HTML to. In my tests I clicked Posts.
  3. Now, click the page or post that you want to edit.

  4. Click the Text tab.

    You will then see the text of the page or post and you can enter the HTML. In my Tests I am adding a Link to an email address:

  5. Click the Update button to save your changes.
    Here is view of the HTML link I added to a Post:


Congratulations, now you know how to add HTML to a WordPress Page or Post!
