Total scripting flexibility in the YWD platform

Header scripts

‹head› scripts in YWD Designer

YWD is the most flexible website website building platform out there. Not only does it allow you to insert scripts anywhere in the content area of the page but you can also add them to the ‹head› section of individual pages.

But you can also add scripts globally using YWD Designer. In Design / Tools / Advanced settings / ‹head› scripts you have separate fields in which to enter Javascript code – like those provided by certain page tracking services – that will be automatically inserted into the ‹head› section of all pages. And under Design / Tools / Advanced settings / Opening & closing ‹body› tags you can insert scripts immediately after the opening ‹body› and/or before the closing ‹/body› tags, as is sometimes required.

These scripting fields in YWD Designer previously had a 512 character limitation, which might require you to edit the code and remove comments, break them into separate fields or even make it impossible to insert some 3rd party scripts altogether. This limitation has now been removed.

In addition, all those scripts are now being loaded from external files – rather than inline – which allows them to be cached by the visitor’s browser for enhanced performance.

Custom CSS options in YWD Designer

Custom CSS options in YWD Designer

The YWD platform includes four fields in which you can enter custom CSS as well as an additional one specifically for mobile devices. Previously designers only had 512 characters at their disposal on each field to enter their CSS classes, but that limitation has been removed, giving them total flexibility to customize the look and feel.

Custom CSS for YWD websites is entered in Design / Tools / Advanced / Custom CSS.
