  • Quick Start gives you the option to begin with a pre-organized widget and skeleton to work with. Perfect for people who are not familiar with coding but are interested in playing with it.


  • Code is the section you will use for the majority of your HTML/Rich Text needs, as it is where you can directly input your code.
  • Choose the Plain Text option to paste HTML code into or the Rich Text option to type in content to show as static text
