Mygroup Custom Meta Tag Examples

Follow

Mygroup's booking engine offers a number of in-depth customization for those who are either familiar with HTML/CSS or employ a web-designer.

Cloudbeds does not offer web development services or consultation, but if you'd like to learn more about HTML and CSS, here are a couple of great places to start:

Getting Started

Login to your mygroup account:

  1. Click on your username in the upper-right hand corner
  2. Select 'Settings'
  3. Click 'Customize Booking Engine'

You can use the custom meta tags box in the 'Customize booking engine' section to add javascript, CSS and other codes to the header or footer section of your mygroup site's HTML.

Please do not insert normal/simple text there. If inserted, it can break the page layout

Custom Meta Tag Examples

Below are some custom CSS examples. You need to change the values in the code according to your needs. The color can be changed by using theHTML hex code - Link to an HTML color tool on this page
