How do I add a widget, like a database search box?

I have created a widget and generated an HTML code for the widget from one of our databases. How can I add that widget to a LibGuide?

Embedding widgets is easy! All you need is the embed code from the site (for example, a database vendor).

  1. Plain Text Editor tab.Copy the embed code for the widget.
  2. Edit the guide where you'd like to add the widget.
  3. Add a Rich Text box.
  4. Click add text.
  5. Choose the Plain Text Editor tab at the top of the box.
  6. Paste the embed code for the widget.
  7. Click Save Changes.
    You may need to refresh the page to see the widget on the page.

    This site is shutting down by, if not before, March 31, 2018.

    LibGuides v1 servers are also shutting down at that time.

    See LibGuides v2 documentation instead.
