Using the Embed Widget
Are you looking to create unique, powerful pages that allow your clients to interact with your content in new ways?
Introducing our new Embed Widget!
This brand-new widget empowers you to think outside the box - you could create landing pages, add interactive design sites, showcase existing external presentations, and more - right from within the Embed Widget.
Adding an Embed Widget
Step 1. Anywhere you're able to click on the + symbol in your Qwilr Pages and Templates, you'll now see the option to add embedded content from services like Calendly, Google Slides, Typeform, and more (just as you can with our Embed Block). While in a Text or Splash Block, click the + symbol (if you don't see that symbol, try hitting the Return key to add a new line). You'll see the Embed option.
Step 2. From here, you'll see Categories - simply pick the type of content you'd like to embed or choose any iframe embeddable content by selecting Other.
Once you've selected your Category, you'll see a screen to insert the embed code from the site/service you selected. Paste it in, and voila! You're ready to rock.
Step 3. Resize the Widget to your liking. We have In-line with content, Wide, and Full Width options. These can be applied to images, videos, Google Maps, and Embed Widgets in the content of your page.
You can also add text and other content within the same Block for ultra customization.
How do I find my Embed/iframe Code?
Where the iframe/embed URL can be found will depend on the service/website/content you're embedding. We have several Help Docs to help you discover the location of our embed code. You can head over to our list of Embed Help Docs for more help on where to find the embed code for various options in Qwilr.
I see a frown emoji, what does that mean?
If you're seeing a frowning emoji, it could mean one of two things. Firstly, It could mean that the site you're trying to embed does not support external embeds. Unfortunately, this is something we can't control. The other reason is you may have grabbed the wrong link. If you see the share button on your external site, try both the iframe and the URL. Alternatively, it may be listed as Embed. If these still don't work - chances are the external site doesn't allow embeds.
What happens if I have existing iframe Widgets?
If you're already using the iframe Widget - no stress, it will continue to work. If you're trying to add a new iframe, it's now exclusively through the Embed Widget. Your existing pages that use an iframe Widget will continue as they are now, however, if you delete the widget (even by accident), adding it back in again is not possible - you'll need to use the Embed Widget (which, let's be real - is much nicer and even more customizable!)
I have a Google Sheet or other large embed that is scrolling endlessly, how do I fix
Our "full bleed" or ultra-wide embed can occasionally come up against a challenge with bigger spreadsheets and/or other iframe embeds that allow for endless scrolling. At this time, the best methodology is to use the "wide" setting or regularly "inline" setting for the size of the embed and that should resolve the problem.
That's it, you're done! With the new Embed Widget, you can add content from across the internet into your Qwilr Pages to keep your clients engaged with your proposals. Let us know if you have any questions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
