Can I edit my page's HTML? What is/is not acceptable?

Yes, it is possible to edit your page's HTML; however, we strongly discourage you from doing so!

The WebCMS works best when you use one of the visual text editors to format your content. While both Kupu and TinyMCE provide you with an HTML button that will let you access your page's raw code, we suggest you avoid using it unless it is absolutely necessary.

When editing a page's HTML, be aware that the following tags will be automatically stripped from the code (though your content will be preserved):

  • abbr
  • acronym
  • address
  • bdo
  • blink
  • button
  • col
  • colgroup
  • dfn
  • fieldset
  • form
  • input
  • label
  • legend
  • link
  • marquee
  • noscript
  • optgroup
  • option
  • samp
  • script
  • select
  • style
  • textarea
  • tfoot
  • thead
  • var

In addition, use of the applet or script tags will result in the tags and their contents being completely blocked when a page is saved or rendered. 

Tags that will not be automatically stripped out include embed, u, font, div and span; however, these tags may be manually removed by someone in the Communications Office or Web Development Group if these tags are not used in compliance with the Hunter College Style Guide

If you would like to edit your page's HTML, we suggest you consult with the Web Development Group or Communications Office before doing so.
