    It seems that many people have encountered the same problem:  the clickable button in HTML embed window can only direct and display the linked page in that small window , not really in the current main browser. 

    However, many of us do not want the linked pages to be opened in a new window.  Is there a way to embed the code directly to the source code of WIX page?

    Following along this same thread.  My HTML box has code for a quick form which when pushing select should take the user to another wix page of mine.  The problem is no matter what target I put in the code it opens the new page in the HTML box and not in the main browser.  How do I jump out of the HTML box>

    Hey sportsscoopnet,


    Where is the HTML Add-On located on the site?


    If the HTML widget isn't working, it may be a problem with the code.
    You can check if the code is correct by using  this site.
    Simply paste the html code between <body> RIGHT HERE </body> and click
    the button above (Edit and Click Me) in order to see the results.
    If nothing appears in the right window or a certain component appears
    but doesn't work, this means that the code is problematic. Please
    contact the creator of the code and let them know that it isn't
    If the preview shows the content as expected, then it's a
    compatibility issue with Wix. We're currently working on improving the
    compatibility of Wix with customizable code.
    Sincerely, Leah Wix Team

    I have figured out how to get the paypal button to work. Instead of adding a paypal button with an html code you have to go to Add+Buttons+Paypal. Then put in all your specifics in the settings like paypal email, name, id number, and price.

    I also am having trouble with the Paypal buttons. I enter the html code and it brings up the button, but when you try to use it, it doesn't link to anything. It looks good ,but doesn't work when someone wants to donate something. I've used this html code before on a different website maker and it worked perfectly fine.Please help me get this button to start working.
