Common Use Cases for HTML Module| Hitchhikers Platform

What You’ll Learn

In this section, you will learn:

  • Header/Footer Examples
  • Custom Layout Examples
  • JavaScript Embed Code Examples

Introduction

This module will walk you through some common examples of where we may use an HTML module. As a reminder, you’ll be able to edit both the HTML and the CSS of these modules, which you’ll learn more about in the Pages Branding module.

Tip
As a reminder, make it easier on yourself and use the built-in modules as much as possible. These are just illustrative examples for using the HTML module should you decide to use it.

Every website needs a header and footer, and HTML modules are great ways to get that done if they want something slightly different than the built-in modules. Here’s a simple example of both — a header fixed to the top of the page with a few links, and a basic footer.

Custom Layout with HTML Module Examples

Here’s a custom module written with HTML and a bit of CSS to style. You’ll see from the source code how the HTML code defines the structure of the website between child elements and parents, and how CSS can enhance that structure. One thing you’ll notice in the code that isn’t immediately obvious in the screenshot — the cards are interactive, and can lead you to different parts of the site.

Embedding Javascript or HTML Widgets

One use case for the HTML Module is embedding third party JS or HTML snippets that add additional content or functionality to your site. Oftentimes, these third party providers will give you the code that you will need to simply copy and paste into the HTML module.

In this example, we’ve added three social media widgets — a Twitter widget pulling in recent tweets from Yext, a Facebook Widget pulling in Facebook posts from Yext, and a recent Instagram post of @yextinc. Social Media

You can find instructions on how to get the embed codes for your specific accounts below:

<!--HTML-->
