Add External Stylesheets/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <link>s in order, and before the CSS in the editor. If you link to another Pen, it will include the CSS from that Pen. If the preprocessor matches, it will attempt to combine them before processing.

Babel is required to process package imports. If you need a different preprocessor remove all packages first.

Add External Scripts/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <script>s in order, and run before the JavaScript in the editor. You can use the URL of any other Pen and it will include the JavaScript from that Pen.

Keep it secret; keep it safe.

Private Pens are hidden everywhere on CodePen, except to you. You can still share them and other people can see them, they just can't find them through searching or browsing.

Save Automatically?

If active, Pens will autosave every 30 seconds after being saved once.

Make Template?

Templates are Pens that can be used to start other Pens quickly from the create menu. The new Pen will copy all the code and settings from the template and make a new Pen (that is not a fork). You can view all of your templates, or learn more in the documentation.

Template URL

Any Pen can act as a template (even if you don't flip the toggle above) with a special URL you can use yourself or share with others. Here's this Pen's template URL:


Screenshots of Pens are shown in mobile browsers, RSS feeds, to users who chose images instead of iframes, and in social media sharing.

This Pen is using the default Screenshot, generated by CodePen. Upgrade to PRO to upload your own thumbnail that will be displayed on previews of this pen throughout the site and when sharing to social media.

// Try 800 or below, it seems not too much but it will make a difference
