I am currently having issues with the Cascade StoryMap Template. It will not allow me to link to any websites through the media tab or as an immersive section.
This indeed looks like it has to do with the https issue I mentioned previously. Because the cascade app is accessible over both http and https, maybe you we're viewing http version of the story.
This is a security restriction put in place by the browser to prevent secure information being leaked by an insecure embedded app. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to override this security restriction.
The good news, wetlandswatch.org does have a https version of their site. Just make sure you embed this URL instead: https://wetlandswatch.org/.
Sagecoast does not have a https certificate so you will not work if the cascade URL has https. I would recommend contacting Sagecoast and request that they add SSL certificate to their website. This is best practice for websites as if is better for SEO, provides better security for their users. They can even receive a free certificate (Let's Encrypt - Free SSL/TLS Certificates).
If sagecoast is unable to add a ssl certificate to their website, you have two options:
Check the URL of the cascade app to see if it starts with https. Does the URL of the website you are trying to embed also start with https? The browser will not allow you to embed an http URL into an https website. This is a security restriction the browser sets in place. You must have an SSL certificate installed on the website you embed and you must use the https URL to that website.
If you are using an https URL for the website and are still having issues, can you provide the URL of the website so we can investigate?
I am hosting the cascade app on an https site (https://baker.maps.arcgis.com/apps/Cascade/index.html?appid=ce692d1d86bc4b18aae6b4a34c91594b)
The web pages I am working to embed into the story map are:
Is there any work around for this?
This is a relatively new issue. Both of those webpages had been loaded into the app and have only recently not been working.
