# Custom Tiles - URL Type

Selecting the URL type for a Custom Tile is fairly straightforward as it effectively embeds the target website in a tile via an iframe.

Create URL Custom Tile - Windy

If you paste in an iframe embed snippet, the input will attempt to grab the URL whenever you tap preview. Many websites offer an ‘embed’ option which provides an iframe tag. For example, on Windy.com you can tap the menu in the top left and choose embed. The embed code that's provided is that of an <iframe>, so you can either manually copy just the ‘src’ attribute or copy in the whole tag and the developer tools will automatically grab it for you.


The stio library works with URL tiles too, but we don’t expose the ability to configure settings for the URL option (yet!)
