The code editor in UpMenu system allows you to make various changes in your website’s theme and layout which you are not able to change in customizing the website theme or content. Find out what you can modify and which parts of the code are permanent and not available for editing.

Attention! Improper use of the HTML editor may cause problems with the functioning of the website or completely damage it. The problems might start even directly after saving changes. Making changes in the HTML editor is not covered by technical support. You introduce changes at your own risk.

Any complex modifications to the website layout are recommended to be introduced only in the custom-style.css file.


What can I change in the code editor?

Changing code in the code editor depends on the theme you’re using. It is always possible to add/edit:

  • Html files (content, layout);

  • Style CSS (appearance) where you can change colors, sizes, and fonts, which you can't edit in "Theme" → "Customize";

  • Resources (e.g. graphic files) that you can't add in "Content";

  • Js scripts (e.g. event handling).

To make changes in the code editor you must go to "Website" → "Theme" → "Code editor" and choose the parts that you want to edit. You can modify the existing code or write one from the scratch on your own.

What can’t I change in the code editor?

  • Menu;

  • Cart;

  • Pop-ups with creating orders;

  • Pop-ups with payments.

Some parts of the code are the same for all our users. That is because some fragments display individual elements such as a menu or a shopping cart. They are common in the system and they are constantly updated and improved. Therefore we cannot provide this code from the theme editing level.
