OpenScholar: Adding an iframe to an Openscholar site


 

Only certain providers are approved to embed media and iframes. They are listed at the bottom of the media upload window (the window used to enter the iframe code).

A site admin or site owner can embed an iframe into your OpenScholar site (like a Google Map, or a YouTube video). To do that, please follow these steps:

  1. Create the new content (Blog post, Page, etc).

  2. Click on the Body textbox to activate the text editor.

  3. Click on the Add Media button.

  4. In the media upload window, click on the middle tab at the top labeled Embed from the Web.

  5. Paste the iframe code into the box.

  6. Click Submit.

**Please note, depending where the iframe was generated from (Twitter, YouTube, Google Maps, etc.) the link may or may not work. Only approved providers are allowed to have their media embedded on a site. They are listed at the bottom of the media upload window (the window used to enter the iframe code).
