Defines an area on the page containing custom HTML/Javascript code, double-click to open the Code Editor.

The code will be embedded in its own div element, you can insert whatever from script to custom content to an iframe to embed external and even interactive code. Here’s an example of code to embed an interactive map on your page, copy/pasted from Google Maps’ Embed a Map code:

<iframe src="!1m14!1m12!1m3!1d61580.05570288794!2d7.670089199999998!3d45.07013900000001!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!5e1!3m2!1sen!2sit!4v1415803193566" width="100%" height="100%" frameborder="0" style="border:0"></iframe>

Note that the smart object will retain its position on the page as it was defined on stage in PubCoder, to make a contained iframe as big as the smart objects itself, use attributes width="100%" height="100%". Also note that when copy/pasting code from the Internet, you may need to make minor manual adjustments to convert it from HTML to XHTML.

If you use the smart object to embed a script, remember to wrap the JavaScript in a script tag, there’s a snippet in the Code Editor to do it quickly:

<script type="text/javascript">
$(window).on(PubCoder.Events.PageReady, function() {
  /* Insert your custom JavaScript code here */
