Sometimes, a basic paragraph just isn't enough. You may wish to add a link, bold text, or bullet points to your operator's business description. For a lot of these formatting preferences you'll need to use HTML. HTML can be tricky to those who haven't used it before, so here are a list of HTML tags you can use to achieve the most common formatting requests.


  • HTML requires that you open and close a tag. You'll note that each tag below includes an opening tag <> and a closing tag </>. Make sure to include both for the below tags.
  • If you're not seeing your formatting reflected on your site, you may need to ask us to allow the HTML tag you've used for your operator pages.


To create a link, you can use this template:

<a href="URL">text</a>

You'll just need to replace the URL section with your required URL and the text section with the text you want to display. So, if we wanted a link that took us to the Bookeasy website that said 'Click here' we would use the following code:

<a href="">Click here</a>

If you would like the link to open in a new tab, you can also add an extra section within your code:

<a href="" target="_blank">Click here</a>

So, if we used the code above, we would get a link that looks like - Click here


To create a section of text that will behave as a paragraph, with a line break after it, you can use the tag <p> at the beginning of the text and </p> at the end. So, your paragraph would look like the following:

<p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Phasellus non mi cursus, dignissim ipsum id, pharetra nibh. Donec blandit urna et dolor porta gravida. Donec mattis nibh justo, eu rhoncus ligula auctor sit amet. Morbi vulputate nisl eget aliquet luctus. Vestibulum et sodales est. Phasellus id diam a orci vulputate tristique.</p>


There are two options for lists: ordered and unordered. An ordered list outlines your points using numbers, whereas an unordered list will just use bullet points. 

To create an unordered list, you will need to lay out your points as follows:


<li>Point 1</li>

<li>Point 2</li>

<li>Point 3</li>


To create an ordered list, create your list as below:


<li>Point 1</li>

<li>Point 2</li>

<li>Point 3</li>


Bold Text

To bold text, just place it between two bold tags: 

<b>This text is bold</b>
