You don't need to know any HTML to use our app! However, there are a few HTML basics we'd love to show you below which will allow you to edit your giveaway on Facebook a bit.
To toggle between the visual and HTML editor, view your giveaway page tab and click the icon to the right of the color options in your admin bar.
Above is an example of a giveaway we've run that shows HTML we used to create graphics and text above the embedded giveaway widget (click on the image above to view a before-and-after HTML example). You're welcome to use the HTML we use in the above example by copying the HTML code here.
ADDING AN IMAGE
If you want to add an image to your Facebook page tab, you'll need to host the image somewhere in a secure location (please read: URL must start w/ https://). We recommend using a image-sharing service imgur.com. To include an image in your page tab, here's how the HTML should look:
EDITING THE WIDTH OF YOUR IMAGE
We recommend uploading an image that has a max width of 600px. If you add an image that's too big, no problem. It's still easy to change the width of your image. All you'd need to do is add a 'width attribute' to your HTML code. Change your image to 600px wide by changing
<img src="https://yourwebsite.com/your-image.png"> --> <img src="https://yourwebsite.com/your-image.png" width=600>
ADDING A BACKGROUND
To spice up the look of your giveaway, you may choose to add a background image to your Facebook page tab. To do this, you'll need to host the image somewhere in a secure location (please read: URL must start w/ https://). To include a background image in your page tab, here's how the HTML should look.
OTHER HTML YOU SHOULD KNOW
Using the visual editor, you can already toggle between bold and italic font, as well as add a URL to some text w/o any HTML knowledge. If you want to center text or an image on the page, all you'd have to do is use a <center> </center> tag. For more HTML basics, there are plenty of resources online that will help you best customize your tab.
