HTML and Formatted Text widgets
The HTML and Formatted Text widgets are designed to display customized information on Overview places, including the community Home page. They are extremely flexible but should be used carefully to ensure effective performant pages.
Uploading resources to a widget
You can use the Formatted Text and HTML widgets to upload up to 10 file resources per place. Spaces can include any kind of files: groups and projects are limited to GIF, JPEG, PNG and BMP files. Files you upload are stored as part of your community so you don't have to retrieve them from an external location, which can improve performance and saves you the trouble of hosting them elsewhere. You can then refer to these resources in any Formatted Text or HTML widget you have access to edit. For detailed instructions, see Uploading files to widgets.
Uploading resources is a good way to limit the performance impact of resource loading from your widgets: uploaded resources don't need to be authenticated on page load. However, you should consider user page loads when determining the number and content of widgets.
Managing HTML Widget security
In the Safe mode, you can still call the assets associated with the core Jive installation as follows:
<script src="/resources/scripts/jquery/jquery.js"></script> <link rel="stylesheet" href="/styles/jive.css" media="all">
Widget upload access should be limited to users you trust. Because any social group owner can upload resources to these widgets, it's possible for users to make incorrect judgments about appropriateness and security, so make sure group owners are carefully chosen.
