Embed in your Site (a window of another site inside of yours)
Creating links to anchors makes it so that you can link to a specific point on an external web page. This is especially helpful for pages with an index referring to a long list of content.
To add an embedded page:
- Click on Embed at the top right under the Insert tab.
- Click on Embed Code.
- Paste in an embedded link from a website and click Next.
*You can even edit codes before you Insert.
*You edit embeds within the edit page of your site.
- To find these codes, they are most likely found in certain menus that say "embed" and it will copy over a code that you paste in here.
*I went to twitter.com and found a post to embed. There is an option to embed on that tweet's options.
*and then copy that code to paste into Google Sites.
Change site URL
Technically you can change your URL in Google Sites. However, when you change the URL it will warn you that any previous custom URLs, external links, and bookmarks will break.
