Not sure on iframe source and code to embed
11 December 2013, 9:15 AM
Not sure this belongs in the forum but giving it a go.
Using v1.7.2 and adding in the Allowed iframe sources to embed a quiz from www.sporcle.com
Anyway the embed code for the quiz on the website says:
<iframe frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" id="spFrame52a775e698d4a" src="http://www.sporcle.com/framed/?v=5&pm&gid=5bdac1eb55f&fid=52a775e698d4a&width=820" style="width:100%;"></iframe>
Not sure therefore what to put in the iframe source block and also not sure how much of this code to copy and paste into the External Sources block.
So far my attempts have drawn a big fat zero...
Many thanks as always

The source for the iframe doesn't work, which seems to be the main problem with the embedd-code. I think, that is a problem, sporcle has to solve.
As for the "Allowed iframe-sources" setting, the url "www.sporcle.com" should do the trick.

I have emailed the company as trying it with just the iframe tags does not work either
Many thanks again

The <script> parts will be stripped out because Mahara uses HTML Purifier. The same problem comes when I tried to embed a Twitter widget (timeline) in Mahara. It strips out all the code and leaves me only with text and hyperlink.
Aparently you can write HTML Purifier customisations to circumvent that but not sure how to do that. And it is unsafe as well as your site could be exploited through it.

As for the source, I would go with "www.sporcle.com/framed/". We recommend to use as much as possible from the URL (and not only the base URL) to prevent any potential misuse.
