How to treat HTML file as web page?

Recommended Posts

This has got to be asked somewhere already, but I can't seem to find it.

I'm written some web pages directly as *.html files.

Is it possible to upload them as files, then add links to them on a Squarespage page, so that the link DISPLAYS IT AS A WEB PAGE?

(Everything I do seems to treat the .HTML file as a file, and asks "do you want to download this file?" I don't want to download it, I want to display it in the user's browser)

Did you figure out how to do this? I'm trying to upload an html file that I created on InDesign and I was able to upload it onto squarespace but it did not give me a url to open the file up with. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Do you have any luck with this topic?
We are also trying to upload an html file that would just be open as as new page but it doesn't seem to work.

I created a page and inserted the code in a Code Block but I have the constraint of the website design (header, spacing, and the full screen button does not work properly): https://www.uzufly.com/demo

Find below the HTML code within the *.html file:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">

  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <!-- Include the CesiumJS JavaScript and CSS files -->
  <script src="https://cesium.com/downloads/cesiumjs/releases/1.86/Build/Cesium/Cesium.js"></script>
  <link href="https://cesium.com/downloads/cesiumjs/releases/1.86/Build/Cesium/Widgets/widgets.css" rel="stylesheet">

    // Add Cesium OSM Buildings, a global 3D buildings layer.
    // const buildingTileset = viewer.scene.primitives.add(Cesium.createOsmBuildings());

    var rectangle = Cesium.Rectangle.fromDegrees(

    var imageryProvider = new Cesium.UrlTemplateImageryProvider({
      minimumLevel: 8,

      // Tell the home button not to do anything
      commandInfo.cancel = true;

    // Add tileset to viewer and set initial camera position

    function offSettileset(tileset) {
        // Set the camera to view the newly added tileset
        var heightOffset = -50;
        var boundingSphere = tileset.boundingSphere;
        var cartographic = Cesium.Cartographic.fromCartesian(boundingSphere.center);
        var surface = Cesium.Cartesian3.fromRadians(cartographic.longitude, cartographic.latitude, 0.0);
        var offset = Cesium.Cartesian3.fromRadians(cartographic.longitude, cartographic.latitude, heightOffset);
        var translation = Cesium.Cartesian3.subtract(offset, surface, new Cesium.Cartesian3());
        tileset.modelMatrix = Cesium.Matrix4.fromTranslation(translation);

    function zoomToTileSet(tileset) {
