Embedding doesn't work, post goes blank

  1. Hello,

    I've been trying to embed a google fusiontable map visualization and a powerpoint presentation on my website.

    But everytime I save draft or update post, the link disappears rather than being converted as shown in the tutorials.

    Here are the links I'm trying to embed;

    <iframe width="500" height="300" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://www.google.com/fusiontables/embedviz?viz=MAP&q=select+col5+from+1gDO2-gdWSTnnXxWEgFVrkS4Vt8sjG_BCjKtiv3g&h=false&lat=30.081782991347072&lng=68.42930554999998&z=5&t=1&l=col5"></iframe>

    <iframe src="https://r.office.microsoft.com/r/rlidPowerPointEmbed?p1=1&p2=1&p3=SD51189F9248095C14!182&p4=&ak=!AAZO2PcNTPDh6rw&kip=1" width="402" height="327" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    The blog I need help with is journalistsafety.org.

  2. We cannot post iframes here as the software strips them out to preserved security on this multiuser blogging platform.

    If you want to embed the document itself into a post, then you will have to use a third party application like Scribd or Google Docs.

    Hope that helps and please let us know if there's anything else we can do

  4. Strangely, the google presentation does not work for pure html either. All I see is blank. Any ideas?

  5. @johanrizalalexander, sorry to hear you're having troubles with Google Docs. Are you following the instructions here?
