  77. 77. Instructions<br />Finding and using HTML embed code:<br />In the case of Twitter, Widget code can be generated by going to About > Resources. By and large, other services follow a similar methodology or possess a Tools area. (Or, Google for HTML Widgets.)<br />Generating embed code typically entails following a few easy instructions. Various options are specific to each service.<br />Once the embed code has been generated, it must be copied via selecting the code and using Edit > Copy (Ctrl+C).<br />Within the LCMS, a new Custom Widget must be created. After doing so, the copied code must be pasted (Ctrl+V) into the HTML Source Editor. Save the widget and add it to the course Homepage.<br />Copy embed code and paste into HTMLSource Editor.<br />
