How To Use The Code Block Element

The Code Block Element allows you to add code (HTML, CSS, Javascript etc) to the page without WordPress changing the format. For the element to work, Code Block Encoding, found in Options > Advanced > Features tab, must be enabled.

Basically, if you don’t know what content to use the Code Block Element for, you probably don’t need it. But essentially, any content within a Code Block element is encoded, and this stops WordPress from getting its hands on the code and inserting tags, line breaks, and any other formatting changes, that it likes to make to content inside the editor. By default, Avada takes the content and converts it into a base64 string so that it can be decoded when the page is rendered. This way it will come out on the page exactly the same as it was inserted into the Code Block.
