How-To Add Simple HTML Coding

Authors list

Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the most common language used to create documents on the World Wide Web.

HTML uses hundreds of different tags to define a layout for web pages. Most tags require an opening <tag> and a closing </tag>.

Example:  <b>On a webpage, this sentence would be in bold print.</b>

Below is an example of a very simple page layout:

 This is the code used to make the page above:



<TITLE>Your Title Here</TITLE>





<a href="">Enter the Display/Link Name Here</a>

<H1>This is a Header</H1>

<H2>This is a Medium Header</H2>

Send me mail at <a href="">Enter the Display/Link Name Here</a>.

<P> This is a new paragraph!

<P> <B>This is a new paragraph!</B>

<BR> <B><I>This is a new sentence without a paragraph break, in bold italics.</I></B>




You can write your code and then test it prior to adding it to your Kahootz page.

How To Apply

If you wish to apply any HTML coding to the platform, it can be done via 2 Ways.

1. When you chose to customise a page or entering text within a web page etc, basically when you see this ribbon bar.

- Simply select "Tools > Source Code" from the drop-down and you'll be able to enter any code of which don't forget to save.

2. When adding a widget ie: Applet on the Dashboard.

Note: We have processes in place to restrict what HTML code is saved for security reasons to prevent malicious content being entered by users. 
So anything other than what is available directly via the rich-text editor will likely get stripped from the source tool when clicking save.
