Lever's Career Site Builder allows you to create your own custom career site connected to your Lever environment. You can use the builder to control the look and feel of your career site, ensuring that each candidate's experience aligns with your organization's brand. Widgets are the building blocks of your site. In this article, you will learn about the HTML widget that you can add to your career site. For guidelines on how to use widgets on your career site, including adding and editing widgets, refer to our widgets overview article.

How the HTML widget works

This widget allows you to embed custom code into your site, and can be used to embed third-party widgets such as videos, contact forms, and more. While adding custom code can extend your site's functionality, we recommend you only add code from a trusted source. Only add code if you know exactly what it does and how to troubleshoot it if it does not work.

Adding the HTML widget

To add the HTML widget:

  • In the left panel of the builder, click Widgets
  • Click and drag the HTML widget

Editing the content of the HTML widget

To access the content editor, right-click the widget, and click Edit Content. The HTML widget provides a space for you to add custom HTML. Just paste or write your HTML in the provided text box.

Editing the design of the HTML widget

To access the design editor, right-click the widget, and click Edit Design. When editing the design of the HTML widget, keep the following in mind:

  • Our Support team cannot troubleshoot custom code.
  • Server-side scripts (for example, PHP and ASP) will have no effect in this widget. We recommend using client-side (Javascript, HTML) scripts only.
  • We recommend creating a backup of your site before adding custom code to it so that you can reload a previous version if something goes wrong.
  • Our editor uses HTTPS, so if your script loads an external non-HTTPS file, it will not work.
  • Our system uses jQuery 3.0 to function, so implementing a new version of the jQuery library will usually cause our editor to stop working. For this reason, we recommend that any custom code you add use the functions in jQuery 3.0 and not attempt to re-initialize the library.
  • While Quick Navigation is on, onload events may not condition properly. If your script uses these, please turn off Quick Navigation as a first troubleshooting step.
