Save time creating HTML markup/content — PageSection provides an HTML Editor that uses the contenteditable HTML attribute to allow full live-page editing of HTML content within your web browser. This provides a dynamic content-creation experience whereby every element in the webpage can be edited or customized by the user with the final results and HTML markup (code) being generated immediately. You can also save the final (HTML, CSS, JavaScript) results online, or export the project as a '.zip' file download.

Click to edit visually — Or use the code editor mode

To use the editor, simply click on the element you want to edit, and make changes accordingly. You can also toggle attributes of that specific element, or even toggle 'Code Preview' mode and edit as code. For example, check out the live demo (sample project), then click on any text or image and start editing. Changes will be updated live.

Upload And Create Editable HTML Webpage Templates. For Personal Or Commercial Use

Feel free to try out the live-demo (sample) project shown above for quick testing. The project uses one of the free sample projects provided on this website, so you are free to edit, download or share the template. Below, we shall explain some of the other advantages and features of using the HTML Editor and PageSection in general.

Upload & create custom editable HTML templates

The editor is not locked to a specific framework or set of "offical" templates. Instead, it allows editing of any front-end HTML, CSS and JavaScript content — from any source, without limitations — as long as the HTML markup in the document is of valid syntax. If you want to upload and use your own (personal) custom HTML templates, you will need to sign-in to your user account then get started by following the steps below.

Get HTML Project

Get HTML project files

This could be a website for a client, or for personal use. Get the necessary project files of the website to upload

Create Zip File

Place the files into a single zip file

Put the website (project) files in a single zipped (.zip) file, include an index.html at the "top" and not within another folder

Upload Zip File

Upload the zip file using your PageSection user account

Upload the zip file using our service to create a project and receive a link. Later you can edit or delete the project

Receive Web Link

Receive a web URL link for every uploaded project

After any successful project upload, you will receive a web URL link which can be used to visit or share the website

Please Note: Back-end (server-side) logic & script files are not supported and should not be uploaded. Only upload the necessary front-end web files like the HTML, CSS and JavaScript. In addition, JavaScript-heavy frameworks are also not well supported as they tend to rely on server-side logic. Ensure your uploaded HTML projects contain as much valid HTML as possible.

Access free HTML templates and snippets to customize

If you prefer (already-made) pre-built HTML templates, consider visiting the editable HTML templates page. Most of the templates are free-to-use and built using popular front-end frameworks such as Tailwind CSS, Bootstrap, etc. Access 100+ customizable HTML templates and snippets powered by the HTML Editor. Or upload to create your own templates.

Get live URL web links for every uploaded project

Every valid upload or saved project on PageSection is assigned a free URL web link. This includes a live preview link to view the project/file/upload when the link is clicked — suitable for HTML webpages, text files, images, videos and other files that can be viewed within a web browser. Users can also create download links for any of their uploaded/saved projects.

Save, view and share HTML content online

Using the generated live URL web links, users can save, view and share the HTML content online with other users across the internet. This is suitable for online collaboration e.g. when sharing website templates with a client, or for educational purposes like student web-dev projects. The links can also be disabled (if and when necessary) by simply deleting the linked project.

Export as zip file download

No user lock-in. PageSection allows users to download any of the user uploaded projects. Lock-in is a problem with many other web platforms such as website builders which tend to produce content that cannot be used elsewhere. PageSection is different and sticks to the very basics; users can upload, store, and export (download) or share the results.

Do everything within your web browser

Interact with HTML content as it was meant to be — within your web browser. No need for extra downloads, installations or plugins. Just connect to the internet and get started. Save changes for later access after creating a user account.

Low-code/No-code support (using visual and code editing)

The HTML Editor was created to support both programmers and non-programmers, that is why it provides both a visual-editor mode and a code-editor mode. This can be realy valuable to low-code or no-code enthusiasts in an organisation or project. Visual editing enables anyone to quickly edit an HTML document regardless of (previous) coding knowledge or experience.

Live HTML structure updates

We display an abstract HTML structure representing all the elements in HTML document, for easy reference and editing. This is similar to the HTML-DOM commonly viewed in browser dev-tools, however the editor gives a simplified version. The best part about it is that the HTML structure updates automatically to reflect changes in both the visual and code editing modes of the HTML Editor.
