View Full Version : Inserting HTML into an existing BV page

I have created a standard page layout for my product info.
I have all my product info from another hosting company within an Excel sheet and the text description has been formatted with HTML. I've tried as many ways as I can think of trying to get this to show up in BV but without luck - however I can see it in preview so it's there.
What I did was insert a text box - went to Edit, then HTML and tried adding the code all which ways: before, inside and after the tag. In preview it's a mess but if it was in BV at all no problem to reformat.
It must be there somewhere but can't find it.
Any ideas?

Guess I can just copy it in as text (?) and edit the heck out of it but was hoping some of the html formatting might hold - I've got 100 products to add.

Thanks, help greatly appreciated

Do you not need to just use the html box you can get by clicking on it { top left of tool bar}

Dave, thanks.
Yup I came across that and it works but I was trying to get it do be a bit smarter but it's a case of html code being imported into an html generator so it's kind of like chalk & cheese.
Think I'll have to redo it all if i want to be able to edit in BV.
I've used Dreamweaver a lot but trying to use one site building method from now on.
Think I'm pressing this a bit far & trying to get it to do something that it's not designed for!

if you want to use the html - you have to do it in the html box.

If it's just text, you can take the text and copy and paste that into the text box and select your choices.
