How to add a <div> to page?

I’m new to RW. I need to add a <div> with an ID to a page, put text in it, and style it in CSS based in the ID. Standard html stuff, no?
I’m using a styled text page, is this the right type? I can view the html source, not add to it.

if you’re using Styled text, you can type HTML directly in to the editing area, then highlight the code and select “Ignore Formatting” from the Format menu item.

That worked!!
Thanks, Ben.
Is there someplace where tricks such as this are listed or documented?

We have the support site, which has a lot of info

We have a free “Getting Started” video course here

We have more free videos on the RapidWeaver Community site

We have even more free videos on our YouTube channel

And finally, we have a lot of subscriber-olny courses available on the RapidWeaver Community

Apologies for kind of hijacking this thread but I’ve been wondering about a similar issue, but related to a stacks page. I’d like to enclose multiple stacks in a div so that I can apply a custom class to them. Would it work to use 2 HTML stacks, the first opening the div (div class=“myclass”) and the second HTML stack below the stacks I want to target to close the div (/div)? Or would the first div be automatically closed by RW/Stacks?

Try this stack

Put your other stacks inside this free stack.


@dagnygromer Another option is to use an html page. You can directly enter your html and not mess around with “ignore formatting”.



Thanks for the resources. I did not know about the YouTube channel, I will check it out. I got here from the support site, and I have watched the getting started videos. I downloaded the .pdf manual.

I am aware of the subscription community site, my feeling at this point in my learning is that I bought a license - I’m not a freeloader - so docs should not be a fee based item. Perhaps I’ll change my mind later on.

I will try this page type. For now some of the easy word processor like formatting tools in the styled html page are useful to me. I appreciate the suggestion.

I downloaded this stack. How to I get it into RW?

Replying to my own question, I stumbled on the answer: Double click on the CSSBox.stack item in folder the installer copied it into.

you can also drag the package onto RW in your dock

I just published a quick video on how to mix and match styled text and HTML in RapidWeaver, you can watch it on YouTube ( or below.
