Embedding web objects in Rise


I'm currently investigating the opportunity for embedding bespoke activities in rise , and was wondering if there was any thought behind embedding html packages/content into a rise block. 

Currently, the only way is to embed something through an iFrame, which means we have to host our content elsewhere. For some clients, their maybe limitations with accessing this content, such as firewall security or internet connection. 

In the past with Storyline, publishing has enabled us to package up the web objects content within the Storyline package, which has meant to have not had issues with hosting or accessing content from external sources. 

I have noticed that you are able to import Storyline files into rise, and that upon exporting, the storyline file does in fact get grabbed and contained inside the final Rise export. So will there be a chance to do so going forward with other content/packages?

Hi Leah,

I just had a look and you're right - the 3 column grid is for images only, not embedded links.

That being said, there are many other block types that do support embedded content. Here's a quick-reference table that shows what kind of media you can insert in each block type.

I hope that's helpful! Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi Leslie,

I tried using an iFrame code to embed that site, and I got the `public.tableau.com refused to connect` error. I’m not positive, but this could mean that that site cannot be embedded in a frame.

To be sure, I would get in touch with our Support Team so they can take a closer look. You can submit a case here.

In the meantime, if there's anything else I can do to help, please let me know!

Hello, Jim!

When embedding web content in Rise 360, use the formula <iframe src="URL"></iframe>. Just replace URL with the link for the content you want to embed.

Using the formula above, the embed code for your web content would be:
