A HTML block is a standard block used to add text or images on a site or course page. The title bar can be left blank.

The block is flexible and can incorporate a variety of functions and uses in the content area. It has the standard Moodle Text editor for formatting text, adding images or creating links, switching to code view and allows any valid HTML markup to be used. This enables embedding video, sounds, Flash, and other files which can add unique elements to a course or site page.

Site administration settings

New feature
in Moodle 2.4!

To aid with theming an administrator can, from Settings>Site administration>Plugins>Blocks>HTML, toggle the ability to allow additional CSS classes to be set in individual block instances. If it is enabled, a field appears at the bottom of HTML block instance's configuration forms:

Please note that if additional CSS classes have been added and the administration setting is then disabled, the form settings are saved in the database and will reappear if this is re-enabled.
