There are different ways on how we can add Javascript in Weebly. Mainly, three different ways to add scripts based on the need and usage.

  • Linking an external script file – effective on site level
  • Embedding within header and/or footer of a specific page – effective on page level

Once file is uploaded, you’ll need to link the file at a website level always via the weebly Site Editor and following these steps: “Settings > SEO > Footer Code” section using the below code:

Embedding within header and/or footer of a specific page

The previous explained method allows us to embed Javascript at website level which is useful for certain features. However, if we’re taking a feature that requires to embed a code to a particular page, say for example a tracking code for a product page, will definitely need to add the code to a page level.

In order to add Javascript at a page level, you’ll need to paste the following lines of code under “Pages > Select a page > Advanced Settings > Footer Code”.
