However, when I open my website in VSD (say, to perform some change) and then "save" the website, the HTML Code (widget) is overwritten/disappears.
How do I make the HTML code "permanent"?
If you have modified a VSD html file it will not show changes if edited in another editor. Try putting your Widget's code in the html box in VSD then save it
Back in VSD, you can drag that box around or use the arrow keys to nudge it into place.
Would this be for some analytics code? If so, you can click on Edit then scroll down to Add Analytics Code and paste it in there.
Let us know if you get it worked out (or not)
I am actually trying to insert code for live chat (http://www.snapengage.com/).
But in case someone else has any ideas, here's the instruction from the above link:
To install SnapEngage manually:
You may need to upload the file (Edit > Add Files, Save), then access your code on the server, or dashboard if you use SDrive. The problem with making changes outside of the VSD program is that VSD will over-write those changes the next time you Save/Publish.
Until some more experienced advice comes along... You could try just inserting it and see what happens. Or you could try using the Analytics insertion box because that does place the code at the bottom.
I would try letting VSD put it in and see what happens
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
