  • Javascript Customization

    Your account can be given access to include Javascript in publication and/or content headers. Because this poses a potential security risk to readers, you must request access from a site admin. Once access has been granted, you can add custom JS on the Settings tab of the publication or content.

    Figure 1

    Custom CSS and JS Form Elements

    To get started, a simple script that you could test and view in the inspector might be the following:

    console.log("Using custom JS.");

    Or to create a simple popup message, try the following:

    alert("Here is a custom popup message");

    Additionally, the platform uses the jQuery library, which may be accessed after page load as follows:

    $(document).ready(function() {

      console.log("Able to use jQuery functions.");
