Q. Can I use HTML to create or edit my Wetpaint site?

A. You cannot directly edit in HTML, but you can embed HTML documents into your wiki with an IFRAME tag:

  1. Create the HTML document with your preferred HTML editor (e.g. Notepad, TextEdit) and save it on your desktop.

  2. Upload the document as an attachment to your Wiki.

  3. Go to the page you want to add the HTML to, and click the EasyEdit button.

  4. Select the "widget" button, and choose "other widget" from the dialogue box that comes up.

  5. Type the following code into the box:

    <iframe frameborder="0" height="600" src="ATTACHMENT URL HERE"; target="_blank" align="center" width="600" scrolling="Auto"; bgcolor="#C9D3DE"> </iframe>

  6. Click okay, and exit out of EasyEdit. You should see your embedded HTML document on the page.

Q. Can I alter the Wetpaint CSS file to create my own customized look?

A. Right now, no. You may choose from the 24 site templates currently offered for the look of your site. You are able to customize the masthead space of your site with a logo or image file (.jpg, .gif, .png formats are supported).
