Web Page widget not loading certain pages

I have been unable to get the web page widget to only work in certain instances.  I am able to get sites like the Google App Status Dashboard (http://www.google.com/appsstatus#hl=en&v=status) and my institution's website (www.lancastercountryday.org) to load, but am unable to get something as simple as Google's homepage to work.  The widget displays as a transparent placeholder.  I am giving the site time to load, but still no luck.

Am I missing something obvious?

Hi Forrest,

Google.com, and many other popular websites disable iframe viewing. Unfortunately that makes it impossible to view those sites through a web page widget.

That would be something obvious.  Thanks for the clarification.

Is it possible to get the correct page info required to allow iframe from the player's perspective? What I mean, is that in my cpanel we can allow certain requests and deny others. When I put rva.risevision in the allowed list I can preview my presentation, but when I run it on the display my content will not load.

thanks!

Kyle,

You may try using http://preview.risevision.com/Viewer.html?type=display&id=*************. Replace the asterisks with your display ID that you want to be able to load that iframe.

Take note that I have not tested this, but I believe it is possible to use this as a solution for websites that you host.

hmm, I will try it, but if I will have to make an entry for each display ID we deploy it may not be worth it.

Let me know how it works out. I'm curious!
