Adding Javascript to Cvent Event Pages

Today our registration team were trying to add a jquery slider at the top of a cvent event summary page. Every time we’d add the script tags to the html editor, we’d save it and the script tags would be stripped out.

After hours of testing we called Cvent support team and here is your answer for anyone else trying this.

This is the ONLY way you can add a script to Cvent event pages.

1.  Any scripting can only go into the Event Summary Instructions section. Even if the code that uses the script is in a different section, you still have to add the script tags in this section (kind of like the <head> section in a regular page)

cvent_Event_editor

 

 

2. You can NOT add the script in the html editor, if you do it will be stripped out! What you have to do is do all your editting in the html editor without the scripting and then save it, then in the small box pictured above you add your script tags. If you ever go back into the html editor, it will also strip out the scripts so always save your code before going into the editor.

    Any luck adding script code in the Blue Release? I’m trying to add typekit fonts but the wysiwyg editor still strips script tags.

    Yes, we had to call about this. You have to add a custom data tag and add the script code to the data tag. This call the new data tag on the site.

    but remember this is still true!! If you ever go back into the html editor, it will also strip out the scripts so always save your code before going into the editor. Also I think if you go into the newly created data tag it will also delete the code.
