Support Request: Embed Code on Start Screen Problem

Description

Hello,
I am trying to embed a social media wall code into a Start Screen layout (Start Page & Browser then Chrome Start Screen but also tried Internet Explorer). When I Go to paste in the embed code, the page displays on the preview / editor but when I launch the Kiosk it is just blank and never loads.

The code is :
<div class="tagboard-embed" tgb-embed-id="2212"></div><script src="https://static.tagboard.com/embed/assets/js/embed.js"></script>

And attached are the configs and my content folder for the start screen.

Answer: (2)

The issue is that the Start Screen Editor runs in https context while the Start Screen in SiteKiosk runs in file context.

The embedded code also does not work with a local html file so it also cannot work as html widget in Start Screen.
See following example e.g. in Chrome outside of SiteKiosk (it doesn’t work in a local html file while the same html file works when using it on a web server with http).

<html>
<head></head>
<body>
<div class="tagboard-embed" tgb-embed-id="2212"></div>
<script src="https://static.tagboard.com/embed/assets/js/embed.js"></script>
</body>
</html>


The only solution would be to contact the support of Tagboard to see if there is any embedded code that can be used in a local html file: https://tagboard.readme.io/docs/embeds

Another solution would be to put that code into a page on any web server and then just embed the link of the web page into the html widget of the start screen.
