Yes, it can, and there are several ways to do it.

The Create Links feature was created especially for this purpose. This feature allows you to cut and paste the HTML code for the Order button of a product into your HTML editor of choice. For more information on using this feature, search for "Create Links" in our on-line help section.

Also, remember that you can enter in HTML code into any of the text fields that ShopSite uses. So you can create HTML through your editor and then paste it into a ShopSite text field. Remember, however, that ShopSite is going to create the , , and <body> tags for you, so it's not a good idea to paste these tags into the text fields. Also, all of the ShopSite text fields are automatically inserted into HTML <table> tags, so be very careful that any table tags that you paste in are closed in that same text field.<br /><br />The one thing that you can't do is create pages through ShopSite, then download the static html page and edit it. Although this appears to work at first, remember that as soon as you update ShopSite, all changes that you made to the static html page will be overwritten.</span> <br /> <br clear="all"> <h3>Related Articles</h3> No related articles were found. <h3>Attachments</h3> No attachments were found. <h3>Visitor Comments</h3> <!-- Start SubmitCommentPanel --> <!-- End SubmitCommentPanel --> </div> <div class="questionRight bSpacing" style="display: block"> <h3>Article Details</h3> <p> <strong>Last Updated</strong><br />13th of November, 2008 </p> </div> <div class="questionRight" style="display: block"> <h3>Would you like to...</h3> <p style="display: block"> <img align="left" border="0" src="http://support.shopsite.com/KBase/templates/Corporate/Images/IconPrint.gif" hspace="5" alt="Print this page">  <a href="javascript:PrintPage('http://support.shopsite.com/KBase/questions/1956/__print')">Print this page</a> </p> <p style="display: none"> <img align="left" border="0" src="http://support.shopsite.com/KBase/templates/Corporate/Images/IconEmail.gif" hspace="5" alt="Email this page">  <a href="javascript:EmailToFriend('http://support.shopsite.com/KBase/questions/1956/__email')">Email this page</a> </p> <p style="display: none"> <img align="left" border="0" src="http://support.shopsite.com/KBase/templates/Corporate/Images/IconComment.gif" hspace="5" alt="Post a comment">  <a href='#comment'>Post a comment</a> </p> <p style="display: none"> <img align="left" border="0" src="http://support.shopsite.com/KBase/templates/Corporate/Images/IconSubscribe.gif" hspace="5" alt="">  <a href="http://support.shopsite.com/KBase/questions/1956/__subscribe">Subscribe me</a> </p> <p> <img align="left" border="0" src="http://support.shopsite.com/KBase/templates/Corporate/Images/IconFav.gif" hspace="5" alt="Subscribe me">  <a href="http://support.shopsite.com/KBase/questions/1956/__fav" rel="nofollow">Add to favorites</a> </p> <p style="display: none"> <img align="top" border="0" src="http://support.shopsite.com/KBase/templates/Corporate/Images/unhighlight.gif" hspace="5" alt="Remove Highlighting" /> <a href="http://support.shopsite.com/KBase/questions/1956/__unhighlight" rel="nofollow">Remove Highlighting</a> </p> <p style="display: none"> <img align="top" border="0" src="http://support.shopsite.com/KBase/templates/Corporate/Images/IconEdit.gif" hspace="5" alt="" /> <a href="http://support.shopsite.com/KBase/admin/index.php?ToDo=editQuestion&questionid=1956" rel="nofollow" id="editArticleBackend">Edit this Article</a> </p> <p style="display: none"> <img align="top" border="0" src="http://support.shopsite.com/KBase/templates/Corporate/Images/IconEdit.gif" hspace="5" alt="" /> <a href="javascript: editArticle(1956);" rel="nofollow" id="editArticle">Quick Edit</a> </p> <p style="display: none"> <img align="top" border="0" src="http://support.shopsite.com/KBase/templates/Corporate/Images/pdf.gif" hspace="5" alt="" /> <a href="http://support.shopsite.com/KBase/questions/1956/__topdf" rel="nofollow">Export to PDF</a> </p> <br /> <div style="display:none"> <h3>User Opinions</h3> <br /> <br /> <script language="javascript">document.write('<fo' + 'rm act' + 'ion="http://support.shopsite.com/KBase/questions/1956/__rate" met' + 'hod="post" onsu' + 'bmit="return CheckFormRating(this);">');</script> <div style="display: none"> <h3>How would you rate this answer?</h3> <input type="radio" style="border: 0px;" name="rate" id="rate1" value="1" onclick="ToggleWhyTextbox(this);" checked="checked" /> <label for="rate1">Helpful</label><br /> <input type="radio" style="border: 0px;" name="rate" id="rate0" value="0" onclick="ToggleWhyTextbox(this);" /> <label for="rate0">Not helpful</label><br /> <input type="submit" value="Rate It !" class="button" style="margin-top:5px;"> <hr /> <div id="why" style="display: none;"> <textarea name="ratingmessage" id="ratingwhy" style="font-size: 12px; color: gray; width: 134px; height: 80px; border: 1px solid #AAA;" onfocus="ClearWhy(this);" onblur="ResetWhy(this);">Help us improve.
