Adding HTML to a Wordpress Page/Post
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:
- Login to the Dashboard for WordPress.
- 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.
- Now, click the page or post that you want to edit.
- 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:
- Click the Update button to save your changes.
Here is view of the HTML link I added to a Post:

This can happen if you are in the visual mode instead of the text mode. Be sure to click on the Text tab before inputting your code.

If you wish for the tags to be visible, they will display as you type them if you are using the 'Visual' mode when creating a post or page. If you are in the 'Text' mode, then it assumes you want to use the code in your post and it will not display but be used for formatting. You can switch back and forth as needed while creating your pages or posts in WordPress.
