Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), is a language used to describe the semantic content of web pages. This block allows you to insert your code so you can fine-tune your content.

Adding block

To add a HTML snippet, click on the Block Inserter icon and select the “Custom HTML” block.

Editing block

Once you insert a custom HTML block, you can add your code and view it right from the block options toolbar. Also, you will have all the standard block options as well.

Block interface

Although most blocks come with unique and block-specific controls, the custom HTML block is pretty straightforward, and only has the “More Options” control available to config.
