- Login to the admin area
- Then access the CMS> Pages
- Choose a page that you are willing to edit and create a new page
- Paste the following line by using the HTML option of WYSIWYG editor

In Magento this is another common issue that is encountered by the beginners. You can add a custom user group through these steps:
Login to the Magento Admin area > Customers > Customer Groups > Add new Customers Group
Once the customer is registered, you can edit the group from the Magento Customer > Manage Customer, and then from the Edit link, you can tweak the group from the Account information> Customer Group and then click on the “Save Customer” button.
