Enable code box for individual pages

First, you will need to enable the  Additional <head> code field for Pages, Events, and News. Navigate to the Google / <head> tab, which is listed under your Admin Settings (see step 1 above).

Then, under the field  Additional <head> code... select Only Administrators (pictured below).


Open your page settings

Navigate to the page where you'd like to embed your code. When you are on the correct page, select the Page Settings icon, located at the bottom left of your white Page Toolbar (pictured below).


Paste your code

When the Page Settings opens, navigate to the Advanced tab. Paste your code into the Page <head> Code box (pictured below).


Save and publish your changes

When done, click the green Save button to close the Page Settings. Then, be sure to publish your page, by clicking the green Save/Publish button in your Page Toolbar. This will activate the embedded code.

NOTE: A second embed component may be required. For instance, if your newsletter plugin provides you with a second code, simply use the Embed Module to insert that additional code to your web page.
