Hi Sanjay,

To add content, you can follow the steps outlined here. When you're in the the Store, do a search for web page and then click on the Widget that shows in the results.  Follow the on screen prompts to add it to your Presentation.

Thanks.

Thanks Neal. I realised that Java was not updated on my machine, hence Chrome was not loading the Content page - it just gives the rotating timer. Now after updating Java, i can access the Content page and added Web Page widget to my presentation.

However, after adding a URL, saving / publishing the presentation, when i click on Preview, it doesn't display the webpage and just shows a white screen.

This is preview URL: http://preview.risevision.com/Viewer.html?type=presentation&id=1ae60629-f337-474e-902a-e31212c63368

And this is the page i am trying to display: http://www.veolia.co.uk/

I may be missing something :(

Any thoughts on how this can be fixed?

The web page itself would need to allow itself to be placed in an iframe.  You can find additional information here.

Thanks.

Thanks Neal, this is clear now. At least managed to preview this website http://www.w3schools.com :-)

Do you have suggestion to display the website with restricted X-Frame-Options?

Sanjay,

If you're looking at showing some specific information (such as from a service), there may be an HTML option they provide for embedding which may work for you.

Thanks.
