Bug report: Can't have multiple web objects in HTML5

Apr 15, 2013


I've encountered an issue where I am unable to have multiple web objects in HTML5.  I've created a slide that has 3 embedded HTML objects and, when I publish and run the story_html5.html file, the three spots flash dark for a moment, then only one of the web objects load; the other 2 spots go light.

Inspecting the DOM shows that there is only 1 <iframe> element whereas I would expect 3, one for each element.

This occurs in:

- Chrome 26 on Windows 7 (x64)

- Safari 5.1.7 on Windows 7 (x64)

- Chrome 26 on Mac OS X 10.8.3

- Safari 6.0.3 on Mac OS X 10.8.3

My intuition is that, as part of the initialization of the slide, a function runs that replaces placeholders with <iframe> tags.  This function doesn't consider multiple web objects and discards all but 1.

I've attached a file demonstrating the issue using a remote site (example.com).  The same behaviour occurs when using local web objects.

Please let me know if I can provide any more information.
