Wordpress SlideDeck 2 - Webpage Widget or iFRAME Will Not Display

I'm currently considering switching from Media Signage to Rise Vision but have a critical issue I need to resolve for displaying external Wordpress Slidedeck 2 content using the webpage display content tool.

This works in Chrome without any issue:

When I add it to a placeholder as a Content item or HTML iFrame, the image and text is not displayed. Since the Rise Vision player is using iframes to display content, is there a chance this content is not compatible?

Hi Chris, could you post a link to your Presentation? I'd like to take a look at it. Thanks!

Hi Byron,
Here is the URL to the presentation:
http://preview.risevision.com/Viewer.html?type=presentation&id=6884cd53-2f98-4b49-a0d8-3905f4be7...

The URL that is embedded in the web page widget plays fine in Chrome, and is currently set to interactive.

Any thoughts on if this slidedeck requires something that Rise Vision don't like?

Hi Chris,

The URL you are using has their server configured to make use of the X-Frame-Options response header which can be used to indicate whether or not a browser should be allowed to render a page in an <iframe>. Sites use this to avoid clickjacking attacks, by ensuring that their content is not embedded into other sites.

When a page such as this is loaded in the Web Page Widget, the site will not be displayed as the Widget uses an <iframe> to load the specified URL.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Hey Chris, I don't think this is us. I think your site is blocking displaying this content in an iFrame. I checked the JS console for the page and I am seeing the following errors:



Not sure if this stackoverflow reference helps http://stackoverflow.com/questions/20498831/refused-to-display-in-a-frame-because-it-set-x-frame-opt... and I am way over my head here so I have circled in a developer colleague as well and they should let us know their thoughts tomorrow morning.

Curious, have you considered running the full page as a scheduled url rather than embedding within a presentation?

Thanks!
