    I will start out with I am very new to SiteFinity. We are using version 4.2 of the software package. I am trying to move a website over to SiteFinity. The page I am moving has JavaScript in the Head and also in a table in the body. I found out how to put the javascript in the head using the javascript control but everytime I try to add javascript to the HTML editor for the Content section of the template it wipes it out. 

    How can I get the javascript in that specific section of the table?

    Hi John,

    Actually, this is expected behavior, since JavaScript in our editor is not supported. What you could do to fulfill your scenario is to create a template, based on a master page and then assign it to your pages. In the master page you will be able to reference your JavaScript files or include your script in a script tag.

    Kind Regards,

    In a pinch, you could also drag the Javascript widget to your page and include the Javascript there. We have done this on pages that have Javascript unique to a page. (whereas we use the Master Page Javascript links for sitewide needs)
