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!

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.

I'm inputting my html into the correct area (text) yet the code is showing rather than what is supposed to be presented visually.  Im trying to embed my twitter, shuld be easy enough one would think.  I created the code for my widget but can't get wordpress to use it correctly.  Such a pain and the free version is so limited you cant even add the option of inserting html via a widget for example, or an alternate way.

Hello Emily,

Sorry for the problems with HTML being entered into your WordPress site. I was able to test in WordPress version 4.31 where I added my twitter code in an about page. It definitely appears. I added it by going into the editor, clicking on the TEXT tab in the top right of the editor screen (VISUAL is the other tab), then clicking on the page, and clicking on LINK in the toolbar. I then copied in my Twitter URL and added text for the link. After I clicked on UPDATE to save my changes, it showed up without any issues. Let us know if that solves the problem you're having.

If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.

Regards,
Arnel C.

Hi  Mark, please make sure to save it as a TXT, not something else. Next, when you go into the editor for your WordPress posts or pages, your tab should be on TEXT in the editor. Then you can add the HTML code. Otherwise, it won't work. If you're trying to edit existing WordPress files, you need to edit them in the WordPress provided editor or separately in a text editor outside of WordPress.If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.Regards,Madan Anjan

Hello Tehreem,

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.

Scott M

Hi Scott,

That is useful and confirms what I had suspected BUT to add Google Analytics/Webmaster tools you need to get into the 'head', not the body, from what I see only the 'body' is exposed in the text viewer...or am I missing something?

Hello Brian,

Thank you for your WordPress question. I found many posts in the WordPress forum, where they suggest using a plugin such as Google Analytics by Yoast.

Alternately, you can edit the code for your theme, and add the the Google code to the header.php. This file location may differ based on your specific theme.

Thank you,

I followed your steps and yes it should work.  It does paste in text, when I go to visual I see the blank box for my embed, then when I reload my site to view, nothing shows up.  I am pasting in text only not in visual.  I'm trying to embed a book I am recommending from Amazon.

To narrow down the issue, when pasting in the text view, and saving your changes <strong>without</strong> switching back to the visual editor, are your changes in place?

We need to include the link to the dynamic seal from the BBB into our wordpress site. The BBB people have provided us with the code snippet to use -and when we add it to the page using the instructions above it doesn't work. The BBB uses a dynamic seal that includes a javascript call - how do we add this to our template?

Hello Karen,

Thanks for the question. As per the tutorial above, Javascript calls are not supposed to be in the page/post, so this tutorial won't really be of help to you. However, can add the logo by using the WordPress Editor provides in the Administrator (Appearance>Editor). I would suggest adding it in a FOOTER so that it appears. This may depend on the theme that you are using. The editor lets you work directly with the code of the WordPress theme.

I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.

Hello ijared,

Thank you for contacting us. The above guide explains how to add HTML to a WordPress Page, or Post. If you want to add something to the and on every page, you will have to add this to the Template/Theme. This is explained in a post I found in the official WordPress forums titled Add HTML to Page HEAD.

The WordPress Codex explains you can add Javascript to a WordPress site. There are also many WordPress plugins available for adding Javascript, such as Code Embed.

Thanks,  John-Paul Briones. I agree that adding HTML code can be intimidating and confusing. But my focus is to empower my clients and readers to recognize that, often, don’t give themselves enough credit. With the proper guidance and training, it is possible to try new things. Notice, my emphasis was on the fact that the HTML was being provided to the reader. Receiving it from a reputable source, like a conference organizer, blog syndicator, publisher, etc. and putting them on a WordPress website is easier than it may seem.

You will have to find the "Twitter" section in the code of the form, to modify it.

Hello, I am posting HTML in my wordpress site but its casuing a big gap between the top of the page and content, could you take a look and see what you think might be causing this?

The URL is 4switch.co.uk, the mortgage form HTML contains a head and body tags and scripts, could that be causing it to shift down the page?

2015-04-03 2:07 pm
Hello Cat,

You can look at the generated page with Firebug or Chrome's Inspect element, then you inspect the area where you're seeing the gap. Part of the reason is that the form itself is formatted to have a large space above it. This could be a CSS issue, or something directly associated with the form's code. You will need to look at the code and identify what's causing the elements to create that gap. When I took a look at it, the form's got a big space in it and there are abunch of paragraphs inside the DIV that make up that blank space.

I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.

Hello Maria,

Thanks for the question about creating a separate login page. My suggestion would be to look at the many plugins that you can obtain for FREE. Many users have the same problem, so there may be a solution already available to you. Check out WPS Hide login. You may also want to consider using Clef two-factor authentication. These would be your best solutions short of hiring a coder/developer.

I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.

Thanks for adding the code. You can try it , but the main thing about adding any type of coding with formatting is that it will be affected by the CSS of the WordPress theme you are using. So, if you have formatting (as you do for the table), then you would need to basically add the code in Wordpress and then see how it's being affected. You might need to massage it a little or move things around, it just depends on the theme. You could also modify the CSS if needed, but in just looking at the code, it looks okay and may need just a little bit of adjustment in your HTML code. No plugins needed.

I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.

Regards,
Arnel C.

Hi TJ

I have inserted it into another site for display purposes. This is how I am needing it to look http://capegrace.org.za/wp-content/themes/church-event/arts.php, the below link shows you how it is displaying https://schoolsfestival.wordpress.com/?p=587&preview=true.   As mentioned, I would be happy to insert it into the page, so long as all the links etc don't get thrown out of place.   Here is the HTML <table border="0" width="696" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" align="center"> <tbody> <tr align="left"> <td width="696"> <table style="display:inline-table;" border="0" width="696" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" align="left"><!-- fwtable fwsrc="Untitled" fwpage="Page 1" fwbase="40_400.jpg" fwstyle="Dreamweaver" fwdocid = "1336497530" fwnested="0" --> <tbody> <tr> <td colspan="5" align="left"><img id="n40_400_r2_c1" src="/support/https://schoolsfestival.files.wordpress.com/2015/10/header_new.jpg" alt="" /></td> </tr> <tr> <td rowspan="4" align="left" valign="top" width="68"><a href="/support/http://www.businessdaytv.co.za/shows/businessofthearts/2015/09/22/the-business-of-the-arts" target="new"><img id="n40_400_r7_c1" src="/support/https://schoolsfestival.files.wordpress.com/2015/10/bdtv.jpg" alt="" width="0" height="0" /></a></td> <td rowspan="4" align="left" valign="top" width="153"><a href="/support/https://youtu.be/p0_YuisAtjw" target="new"><img id="n40_400_r7_c2" src="/support/https://schoolsfestival.files.wordpress.com/2015/10/gala.jpg" alt="" width="0" height="0" /></a></td> <td rowspan="4" align="left" valign="top" width="142"><a href="/support/https://schoolsfestival.files.wordpress.com/2015/10/ismail.pdf" target="new"><img id="n40_400_r7_c3" src="/support/https://schoolsfestival.files.wordpress.com/2015/10/ismal.jpg" alt="" width="0" height="0" /></a></td> <td rowspan="4" align="left" valign="top" width="91"><a href="/support/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSrIA0BxTqM" target="new"><img id="n40_400_r7_c4" src="/support/https://schoolsfestival.files.wordpress.com/2015/10/iza.jpg" alt="" width="0" height="0" /></a></td> <td align="left" width="243"><img id="n40_400_r3_c5" src="/support/https://schoolsfestival.files.wordpress.com/2015/10/follow.jpg" alt="" height="23" /></td> </tr> <tr> <td align="left"><a href="/support/https://www.facebook.com/schools.festivals" target="new"><img id="n40_400_r4_c5" src="/support/https://schoolsfestival.files.wordpress.com/2015/10/fb.jpg" alt="" height="42" /></a></td> </tr> <tr> <td align="left"><a href="/support/https://twitter.com/artseducation40" target="new"><img id="n40_400_r5_c5" src="/support/https://schoolsfestival.files.wordpress.com/2015/10/tw.jpg" alt="" height="42" /></a></td> </tr> <tr> <td align="left"><a href="/support/http://schoolsfestival.wordpress.com/" target="new"><img id="n40_400_r6_c5" src="/support/https://schoolsfestival.files.wordpress.com/2015/10/blog.jpg" alt="" height="43" /></a></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> &nbsp;

Hello Kristin,

Thank you for contacting us. I was not able to see the example of how your site is displaying, but the process remains the same. As Arnel mentioned "You might need to massage it a little or move things around, it just depends on the theme. You could also modify the CSS if needed, but in just looking at the code, it looks okay and may need just a little bit of adjustment in your HTML code. "

Thank you,
John-Paul

Hi TJ,

 

Not sure what is happening, as I keep pasting my code in, and get 2 emails saying there is a new comment, but when I come back to the page, my message is not showing? Is there somewhere I can mail the code to?

 

Thanks

Kristin

Hello Kristin,

Your code came up fine for us its just that we have to approve the comments before it is displayed. I tried to go to https://schoolsfestival.wordpress.com/?p=587 and I got a 404. Is that post currently published and set to public?

Best Regards,

Kristin, we're still getting a 404 error when visiting that URL. Are you sure it's correct and published. If its not published we can't view the preview unless logged in to your admin dashboard for WordPress.

Hi.I am beginning to get a little bit frustrated with wordpress, I'm use to build webpages from scratch, and would not use wordpress because it limits your possibilities.

 

Buts since I'm helping my friend with his website, I have found some problems that I wanted to hear if there was any kind of fix for.He's been compying text from an outside source into the "view" section in some of his htmls, and that makes the font change on the websiide, is there any global killswitch for this? or how would I be able to change the CSS in order to change all the text to use the same font?Also, I need axcess to the headder, is there any way possible to do this from wordpress? or do I need to actually use a tool (like aptana) to edit the HTML pages? Sorry for my poor english, it is not my first language.kind regards

Hello Asger,

Sorry for the problems with editing the WordPress pages. If he's copying text from elsewhere and he's putting it into a WordPress site, most of the fonts are governed through the theme. There's no "killswitch" to turn off this formatting. If you want to change it, then you have to modify the CSS associated with the section that you're in. If you want to make changes, check out this post from the WordPress Support forum. It helps you identify where to change the fonts in CSS. Changing different parts of a WordPress site depends on the theme. So, if you're trying to change the header, you would either have to work within what the theme allows you to change, or find that section in the CSS to make formatting changes.

ALL of the elements within a WordPress site can be changed, it's just a little tougher because it may vary based on the theme governing the site formatting.

I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.

Regards,
Arnel C.

Hi, 

 

I'm new to wordpress and I want to add a video to my page such as this one http://videolightbox.com/. When I use this application it creates a local index.html file and I just want to get this feature onto one page of my company website. I read a few things about messing with the php header in the theme, but I'm afraid that will alter the entire website. 

 

Any stress-free tips on how to put this video pop-out feature into my current wordpress site? 

All help is much appreciated. Thanks

Hello Andrew,

You could use this plugin I found as you can not add .html files to your WordPress website.

Hello Mark,

First, when you're using notepad, please make sure to save it as a TXT, not something else. Next, when you go into the editor for your WordPress posts or pages, your tab should be on TEXT in the editor. Then you can add the HTML code. Otherwise, it won't work. If you're trying to edit existing WordPress files, you need to edit them in the WordPress provided editor or separately in a text editor outside of WordPress.

If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.

Regards,
Arnel C.

Hi, simple problem that I have been searching high and low for a workaround. I have a front page displaying "full text" posts, and WP strips all of the HTML out of the posts, specifically A and IMG tags in my case. I want the links and images shown on the full blog post to show on the front page. I understand why it does this if it was only showing abbreviated posts, but this ought to be doable with full posts. Is there a workaround, plugin, or can this be done within the theme's files somehow? I know I could use the excerpts to workaround it a bit, but that starts to get goofy when we've got more users writing posts and just want it to display what it should. Thanks!

Hello Gaetano,

You may need to edit the page via the database or you can edit your wp-config.php and switch the debug line from false to true and it should display the issue.

Best Regards,
TJ Edens
