Can You Add HTML to Wix?

Last updated on January 7, 2023 @ 12:55 pm

If you’re familiar with HTML (HyperText Markup Language) and want to add custom code to your website, you might be wondering: Can you add HTML to Wix?

The short answer is: Yes, you can add HTML to Wix! In fact, Wix provides a built-in HTML widget that allows you to easily add custom HTML code to your website. This can be a useful feature for adding things like custom forms, third-party widgets, or other types of content that are not available in the standard Wix editor.

So, how do you add HTML to Wix? Here’s a step-by-step guide:

  1. In the Wix editor, click Add > More > HTML iframe.
  2. A new HTML widget will be added to your page.
  3. Click on the widget and then click the “Enter Code” button.
  4. A pop-up window will appear with a code editor.
  5. Paste your HTML code into the editor and click “Update.”
  6. The HTML code will now be added to your website.

One thing to keep in mind is that the HTML widget is an iframe, which means that it will display your HTML code within a separate frame on your website. This can be useful for adding content that is not natively supported by Wix, but it can also lead to some limitations and potential issues with compatibility. Make sure to test your code carefully and ensure that it works as intended before publishing your site.

Overall, the ability to add HTML to Wix is a powerful feature that can help you customize your website and add custom functionality. Whether you’re an experienced web developer or just starting out, the HTML widget is a useful tool to have in your toolkit.

PRO TIP: While it is possible to add HTML to a Wix site, it is not recommended. Wix is a drag-and-drop website builder that is not meant for custom coding. Adding HTML to a Wix site can cause problems with the site’s design and functionality.
