HTML Widget Creation

Last updated on 21 October, 2022

Creating an HTML widget involves adding either a URL or embedded iFrame content to the HTML widget settings, and then selecting a color scheme for the widget display.

Requirements for Creating an HTML Widget

  • You cannot insert HTML text directly into this widget. For information on how to insert HTML text directly into a widget see Text Widget Creation.
  • Only websites accessible from your network can be added to an HTML widget. Blocked sites will not populate in the widget.
  • The website URL must be secure (HTTPS).
  • HTML widgets cannot display sites with an X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN header. This header prevents other sites from displaying it as an iframe.

Creating an HTML Widget

  1. In the HTML widget, complete the Basic Information fields. For more information, see Standard Widget Configurations.
  2. Under HTML Options, select one of the following options:
    • Web page URL: Enter the URL of a secure (HTTPS) website.
    • Embedded iframe content: Find the embed option for your video, copy the URL between the double quotation marks in the src field, and then paste the URL into the Iframe Content field.
  3. Select a Widget Color Schema. For more information, see Standard Widget Configurations.
  4. To preview the widget before saving it, select Preview in the top right corner of the widget form.
  5. Select Save and the widget will be saved to your dashboard.
