Storyline Course, Web Object, SuccessFactors LMS, Security Warning
Hi folks! I need some help: I have a new client who uses SuccessFactors (formerly Plateau) as their cloud-hosted LMS solution. I sent the client a Storyline AICC-published test file to check on basic Completion passback and performance of various objects. The test file itself plays fine, except that when we click the Next button to reach a slide with a Web Object calling a PDF from the client's own (i.e., a different) server onto the slide, then an IE "Security Warning" box pops up:
"Do you want to view only the web page content that was delivered securely?" Yes/No
If we click No, then the PDF document loads successfully, but obviously we don't want that message popping up in the middle of the course. It looks like there is a cross-server issue, since the PDF is not hosted on the same server as the LMS, and I recall running into something like this with other courseware and another LMS some time back. Has anyone used either the ASP or PHP workarounds mentioned in the support article below, or found some other simple solution? If so--what specific steps worked for you?
As an alternative, I tried embedding the PDF into the course as a Web Object to be viewed on the slide (the client doesn't want new windows launching), following Mike Ender's directions in the following forum link, but when I view that published slide on my web server, what I see is the contents of the index.html file, not the PDF file that's in the same folder.
Can anyone help? I think embedding it might be the simplest (even though it means republishing if they update their PDF). But I can't figure out why Mike's workaround instructions for embedding the PDF don't work for me. (I also don't know why embedding a PDF on a slide isn't just one of the options on the menu already--an enhancement I will definitely submit.) I would greatly appreciate any speedy help, as the client wants to review their Alpha course ASAP.
Anyone have any answers? Thanks!
