Working with custom HTML
BEE Pro becomes Beefree
We're still the same design suite you know and love, just with a new name. Our team is working hard to update our documentation, but you might still see some information or screenshots that are out of date.
This article applies to both versions of the builder in all plans.
HTML experts only: Using your own code may affect how the design is rendered. This could prevent it from adjusting to the screen size (i.e. the "responsiveness" of the design). Make sure to use HTML that is email-compliant and responsive. Keep in mind that custom HTML is often outside of our scope of support.
Why use custom code?
Adding more customized content
Adding HTML 5 video, anchor links, etc.
Adding advanced effects with CSS
Adding live content from external providers
How do I add my HTML code?

Using Custom HTML with Pages
The Page builder does not use the same sanitizer you'll find in our email builder. This means that it will not strip out syntax or fix any issues in your code. This is because browsers aren't likely to have limitations seen in email clients. If you want to use custom HTML on your landing page, you have complete freedom to do so.
