I have some HTML within a content web part.

For some reason when I add in the following code to my divs it removes it when I click ok and try to save it.


It's on a web part page and it doesn't do it on wiki pages I have on the site.


The Content Editor webpart (CEWP) does not allow adding javascript directly in the webpart.

  • If this is 2013 you can try the Script Editor webpart as described here.

  • In 2010, or if you still want to add the CEWP in 2013, you can use the option to link in the content from a text file as described here

  • I have a CEWP in another page (its a wiki page) which allows me to insert this line with no issues which is odd.

    It could depend on whether it is a publishing page, wiki page or webpart page. I recall there is some differences in if they strip javascript or not Aug 5 '14 at 14:15
  • The first link for Script Editor Webpart gives 403 Forbidden error
