Optional features

HTML Freeflow edition

HTML freeflow is an optional feature that allows the customer to access low level code and edit it to match extra functionality not available in the general text editor.

Understanding Freeflow

If you have HTML Freeflow feature enabled for you, whenever you edit an asset (Video description, page content, etc.) you will get the HTML code editor at first.

You can switch between code editor and visual editor using the Edit HTML button: Edit HTML button

Warning: Switching to visual editor cleans the content of your page of unsupported HTML tags.
Be aware of not switching to visual editor if you have customized the HTML code of your page.
