Editing Source Code in Wordpress


Staff member
The company I am working with hosts their webpage on Wordpress. They want me to edit some of the code in order to do various things, such as enable a photo container to be a moving slideshow.

Figuring out the javascript and html to achieve the results they desire is not problematic for me. However, I am unsure how to get full access to the Source Code of the site. I have privileged access to the backend of the site but in wordpress when you go to edit it only shows some of the basic html tags while hiding the
tags and code. Is there any way edit the page in its source code format? I don't want to have to go through the simplified and less expressive/less control Wordpress interface, and I don't even know if I can achieve the desired results with it.
