I am having trouble getting a story map embedded on my organization's website. I am running into multiple problems:
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
To embed a story in your website you need to use a snippet of code called an iFrame. The iFrame can have many parameters to control its size and behavior, but at a minimum it must have a "src" attribute that points to the link to your story map. For example:
This is a standard practice for embedding content on the web, so I would suggest you ask for some help from the person who manages your website to get this working.
The clipboard is a common term for where text gets stored when you copy it on your computer. When text gets copied to the clipboard you can then paste it wherever you like.
The new ArcGIS StoryMaps doesn't provide iframe code since it is so simple to generate and often web administrators need to modify the code to fit their website anyway. However, you can copy the link using the link button in the header as you mentioned above or just copy the link out of your browser's address bar and use that in an iframe code snippet.
Thank you for your reply. I believe I am embedding an iFrame code? When I
click the link button, this code shows up...
I copy and paste that into the website and the code still appears when I
preview the page. Not the map. Is there an additional step I am missing
What website are you pasting the code into? Are you using a website design tool like WIX? If so, you'll need to use an embed option so the page interprets the iframe snippet as code rather than plain text.
I'm using Wordpress but what you just described sounds like the problem I'm
having. It's just interpreting it as plain text. I'll keep digging into
it. Thanks for your help. Greatly appreciate it.
