With the HTML App you can add your own HTML code or embed another site onto your Wix site.

 

To add the HTML App: From the left side of the Editor, click the Add icon > click Apps > click HTML.

Click the HTML App to select it > from the pop-up menu, click Settings > under Mode, choose HTML Code or Website address > enter the code/address > click Update.

 

Note: Take a minute to read through the Known Issues & Limitations of the HTML iFrame/Embed App before using it.

    I can't seem to get the HTML app to refresh. If I go to the direct link that I want the HTML app to link to, it's the right page, but when the site is published, somehow it goes to a wrong page!

    I am using iframe.  I have built a database site (only because Wix doesn't offer the full capabilities I need in a database).  I have it working without problems.  I plug it into an Iframe.  To show all the data, I need the height to be set to 1500.  But I need the parent window (the wix page) to scroll back to the top when I click inside the iframe page.  I have code to make this work, and it works in other iframe settings, just not in Wix.

    Can you please let me know how I can scroll the parent window up, each time the iframe page changes.  I code in php, HTML5, and CSS.

    I have tried this code in the wix html embed code option with no avail:

    <iframe src="page.php" onload="parent.scrollTo(0,0);"></iframe>
    And I had this code on my page that should allow the parent to scroll.
    <body onload="window.parent.scrollTo(0,0);">

    Please let me know if this is possible. Thanks!

      Hi,

       

      Keep in mind that by adding external HTML code you are adding products and code that we have not tested or created in Wix, therefore our support team cannot answer any questions concerning the HTML iFrame/Embed App.

      We recommend testing your code externally. You can do this using sites such as the following:
      w3schools.com
      jsfiddle.net

      1. Videos added through the HTML App will not auto-stop when you move through the pages of your site. You will need to manually stop your video from playing before navigating to the next page.

      2. Media players added through the HTML iFrame/Embed will not auto-stop when you move through the pages of your site. You will need to manually stop your media player from playing before navigating to the next page. Also refrain from using the "auto-play" feature with media elements.

      3. Please note that the character limit for the HTML code that you can add is 8,192 characters.

       

      We are here should you require further assistance.

      Many thanks, Barrios

    Editing Html5

    Are all Wix sites new or old HTML5 ?
    How do I get to see and edit the HTML of my site.

    • Ritti Wix Team

      Replied by Ritti August 4, 2014

      Hi,

      HTML5 is the latest version of HTML. There is no option to edit the source code of WIX sites. You can however use the html app to add code of your own. Please refer to the instructions above.

      Hi,

      An IFrame (Inline Frame) is an HTML document embedded inside another HTML document on a website. You can use the HTML app for this purpose.

      Please refer to the best reply above for more information.

      You merged my question with another thread and now I am COMPLETELY confused.  I cannot find the answer and still do not know  ALSO, please note that I am not interested in Wix contact forms since I have my own for which I pay for and it makes not sense to me to use Wix one.  Please respond to my original question directly.  Thank you.
