What are code snippet templates
We offer our clients code snippet templates that can be used in many different locations within your Zapnito site.
The templates will adhere to your brand colours and are designed to be responsive all the way down to mobile devices. You will be able to edit and customise any text, images and links that are contained within the code.

Once you have finished editing, for homepage snippets click either 'Save as Draft and Preview' or 'Save and Publish' at the top of the Homepage Settings page; for non-homepage snippets, remember to hit save at the bottom of the code snippet editor.
