Web object

Hello everybody,

I'm using Storyline to create an e-learning training courses and, for that, I have to test all the functionalities of the software.

I tried to use a web object.

When I make a publication to test my story on Google Chrome, I use the html file, but not the html5 file because with this one, some of my screens are destroyed, and my shapes are mixed-up on my screen.

But with html file, my web object doesn't appear. Is it normal ? Or do I have to use the html5 file to use my web object ?

Thank you for your help,

Hi Boris,

First, can you tell me how you're viewing the published presentation, please? Are you viewing the published output files locally, or are you uploading to a web server or LMS?

If you're viewing your published files locally, this may be the problem. If you view a published Storyline presentation on your local hard drive or send it to someone else to view on their local hard drive, you'll encounter security restrictions from the computer, web browser, Flash Player, and network that'll cause various features of your content to fail.

To properly test your published content and share it with others, upload it to the environment for which it was published. Please review the article below for more information:

Publishing and Sharing Articulate Storyline Content

  • I suggest using SCORM Cloud for your course - it's a great place to test SCORM content.
  • Another option would be to use our Tempshare server. Just keep in mind that this server is only available for testing content - it is not officially supported by Articulate and all content will be removed automatically after 10 days.
  • You're always welcome to try out Articulate Online, as well - it's available for a free 30 day trial.

If you're uploading to a web server or LMS, please try clearing your browser cache. If that doesn't help, try viewing the project in a different web browser.
