The HTML gadget is part of the Widget block, the general presentation of this block is available in the Widget block guide.
This block is available for all Premium and Pro versions of websites.
The HTML widget block allows you to embed HTML code from third party services, into your website. In this case, it simply consists in copying (CTRL-C keys) and pasting (CTRL-V keys) a piece of code provided by a third party service.
Manage the HTML Widget block
Enter or paste here the HTML code you want to embed into your website page.
Direct embedding option
Logically, if the code itself contains an <iframe> tag, the direct embedding option should be enabled, because it is useless to have an iframe within an iframe.
Disable HTML validation
By default, The HTML widget block controls the HTML code and eliminates the erroneous or problematic parts of it. Thus it is recommended to leave the HTML activation enabled, except if the third party service provider
performs verifications on the embed code.
HTML Widget and SSL
This code uses an insecure resource (http:// url in a src attribute) which is not compatible with SSL. Please only use https:// URL for resources if you want to enable https site feature.
If this warning message appears in the HTML widget window, it means that your HTML code refers to resources with an http:// address (non-secure protocol), whereas you configured your website in https:// (secure protocol).
To be secure, a website should only use secure resources. If you use the HTML Widget block to embed third party services into your (secure) website, check that the service provider is compatible with https. Today, it should be systematically the case.
Example: add a weather widget with Accuweather
Many web services offer HTML widgets to embed into blogs and websites. It is the case for instance of Accuweather: https://www.accuweather.com
The first step consists in configuring the widget of your choice.
And the second step provides the code to embed.
You then just have to copy and paste it into your HTML Widget block.
