Before the March ArcGIS online update, you were able to select to edit your story map in html, and it would stay on the html editor the entire time. Now, every time you save an edit on a slide, it switches back to the normal editor.


here is an example of the code that gets stripped


 <div class="dropdown">
  <button class="btn btn-primary dropdown-toggle" type="button" data-toggle="dropdown">Dropdown Example
  <span class="caret"></span></button>
  <ul class="dropdown-menu">
    <li><a href="#">HTML</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">CSS</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">JavaScript</a></li>


I previously had HTML Bootstrap buttons on my slides, but now every time I save the HTML code, it strips to code and shows up as text. Does anyone have any ideas?


I tried to insert a jpeg into the story map with a link attached to it, but that puts a grey box on the image.

Does anyone know how to keep working in HTML or remove the grey box?
