Additional HTML or Scripting Code to be added to the Product Ad and or Support Pages (For advanced users)
Use the new "Add_Code" sheet to add your own custom HTML or Scripting Code to the published Product Ad and / or Support HTML Pages. It is not required that you utilize this sheet, but it is provided as an option for Web Designers who need the capability to add their own custom code.

To use this Additional Code feature, enter the HTML or scripting code into the blank cell areas where you want the code to be placed into the corresponding published HTML documents. If the check boxes are checked, then the code will be added to the published documents. If left unchecked, then the code will not be added to the documents.

    There are four (4) areas provided where you can place your custom code.

    • Before the </head> end tag
    • Within the <body> tag
    • Beginning of the <body> section
    • End of the <body> section

HTML documents are organized in the following standard format:

    <html>
    <head></head>
    <body></body>
    </html>

Head Area
The Head section typically contains information about the document, which includes the Document Properties, Page title, and META tags. Scripting code, usually JavaScript, which is primarily used for dynamic content, is also contained in the Head section. When an HTML document is displayed in a web browser, all information contained between the <head></head> tags is usually invisible to the site visitor.

Body Area
Most information contained between the <body></body> tags is usually visible to the web visitor. The Body section typically contains the static content that you want presented the site visitor. In some cases, the Body section may also contain Scripting code, which again is usually JavaScript.

Customized <body> Tag
You also have the capability to add code within the <body> tag. In most case this will be a JavaScript event command. If you are utilizing a custom JavaScript and want it to run immediately after the page loads in the site visitor's web browser, you can add an onLoad event script command to the body tag. For example: <body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" topmargin=0 leftmargin=0 marginwidth=0 marginheight=0 onLoad="runscript()">.

Cautionary Notes
HTML pages created with this program already contain JavaScript. This JavaScript is used for the management of the Shopping cart, Add-to-Cart button functions, and for the Ad Comment Hyperlink popup windows. If you add your own Javascript or Vbscript to these documents, make sure it does not affect the functionality of JavaScript already in place. Test your final published web pages locally prior to making them public on the Internet.
