trouble embedding iframe

Aug 15, 2017


This is a two-part question:

1) I have a public mindmap template that I'd like to embed as an iframe to maintain its interactivity on Rise. But for some reason it's not recognizing it as a valid code. Am I doing something wrong by choosing the "Embed" function? Here's the iframe code:

<iframe width="600" height="400" frameborder="0" src="" scrolling="no" style="overflow: hidden; margin-bottom: 5px;">Your browser is not able to display frames. Please visit <a href="" target="_blank">Brainstorming</a> on MindMeister.</iframe><div class="mb-5"><a href="" target="_blank">Brainstorming</a> by <a href="" target="_blank">Andrew Ratner</a></div>

2) Is it actually possible to maintain interactivity of web content on Rise, or will they always be published as just an external link?


Thanks so much!

Hi Vicki,

I'm seeing the same problem, and it looks like it could be an issue with Embedly not liking the format of the YouTube link.

I was able to successfully embed the video using the Youtube generated embed code:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Give that one a try, and let me know if it works for you!

Hi there,

Another newbie here. Could anyone clarify if iframe is the same as web object in Storyline 360? I am using the web object and pasting the link, but some slides don't open it after I publish, unless I choose the option to open it in another tab and I need it to open within the slide.  Any suggestions? All I do is insert a web object and I paste the link. Thanks. Stef

Hi Stefaniada,

Happy to help! A web object in Storyline is essentially the same as an iframe.

There could be a few reasons why your web object isn't displaying when you publish, but if it's playing when you open it in a new window/tab, then it could be that the hosting website isn't allowing viewing in an iframe.

Take a look at this article for more details!

Hi Alyssa, 

Thank you for getting back to me so quickly!  I tired the direct link and it displays in my course but I am unable to interact with the map it.  When I click on it it send me out to the Mind Meister website.  I don't want for my students to leave the course I want to keep them in it at all times.
