HTML Custom Tag

Due to the risk of breaking your page with this macro, it is disabled by default when the HAT plugin is installed. The administrator has to enable it manually in the Add-on Manager.


The custom HTML tag macro gives you most freedom in adding add an HTML tag of your choice to your page.

There are two flavors of this macro:

  • HTML Custom Tag: Has no body

These macros require good knowledge of HTML in order to know what you do when you add them.
