    Hey Emex,

    Hope you’re doing well today and thanks for your question!

    If you want it to be just a standalone html page then you can upload it to the root of your WordPress install. The same directory where your wp-config, .htaccess, wp-admin folder, wp-content folder, etc is :slight_smile:

    If your page is called mypage.html and it is placed there then you can visit it by going to:

    Hope that helps Emex. If you still need any further assistance with that let us know :slight_smile:

    Hello Emex,

    Thanks for your question!

    Hoping you’re already got some help from Tyler! If not then follow my steps below –

    Have a look –

    If you want to upload and see your file in a browser then you have to upload it to your theme folder – located in ‘wp-content/themes’ directory.

    But, at first you should create a Page Template, standard but custom page that support WP (your page name should be then in ‘.php’ extention) and then assign it to you normal page from dashboard – Pages > Add New > then select the Page Template from Page Attributes section and Update the current page you’re working – see the attached image.

    When you’ve this changes then visit you newly created page just by clicking View Page. Hoping that would work for you sure.

    If you don’t understand and don’t know how to create a custom page template then have a look at this link:

    If not, then ask with your queries!
