Fronter IFRAMES or OBJECT tags
It rears its ugly head with a new Fronter user again: how can you simply embed another web page within a given Fronter page?
If you write some HTML code that should embed another web page on a given Fronter web page using the IFRAME tag, upon saving the code you are told by the system that illegal code has been stripped - your attempts to embed another document appears fruitless! :hand:
<i frame src="h ttp://w ww.google.co.uk" height="400px" width="600px"></i frame>
(please excuse the spaces - it would only post in this condition)
I've trawled through various topics on here with other technicians struggling to get objects embedded into the VLE web pages and there are talks of having the unsafe IFRAME tags unlocked at LEA level; more often than not this still doesn't rectify the problem? :confused:
Surely there is a parameter you can switch on/off to prevent the VLE from stripping the HTML code you enter?
If there is, could I ask someone who has had success to list a clear step-by-step set of instructions that will talk me and others through it? :)
A workaround that I have already considered is to use the OBJECT tag, but this simply shows a blank white space (with disabled vertical scrollbars I might add) instead of the desired web page.
<o bject type="text/html" data="h ttp://w ww.google.co.uk" height="400px" width="600px"></o bject>
In contrast, other VLE's such as Frog, Moodle and SharePoint-based ones all offer great support for embedding external content to the VLE web pages.
Greatly looking forward to your suggestions,
Perhaps a scorm workaround
I am fairly sure nothing will allow you to put iframes into Fronter's own pages. I can get a web page to appear in one of Fronter's pages but it isn't much use. It was a few weeks back but what I think I did was to paste in the code as if I was embedding a youtube video and then change the object data and the embed src to the url of the page that I wanted to include. I was surprised but it appeared as intended. The problem is that I am using Firefox on a Mac and it doesn't appear in IE on a pc so the workaround is of little use.
