Embedding Weebly Page

I have a website that I created on Weebly that I would like to embed on my Canvas page. Unfortunately, Weebly doesn't generate embed codes for pages, so I have to resort to using a generate to create my own embed code using an iframe or something similar. When I've done this, all that shows up is a white block where the site should be on my Canvas page. If someone could help me come up with a way to embed my site, I'd greatly appreciate it! Here is my weebly site I want to embed:

Kickapoo High School Speech & Debate - Home

 @jmbaney , the reason you're running into that white screen issue is because the site to which you're trying to link is http: , which is considered insecure content by the browser you're using. Students would have to click on the link at the top of the frame to navigate to the site, and although we can provide instructions on how to do that, many instructors don't like the idea of telling students how to override those browser protections.

Here's the actual URL: http://kickapoospeechdebate.weebly.com/  So I don't know if Weebly supports the https: protocol, but you could try adding the "s" to the URL to see if the content displays for you then.

I just checked: Weebly does have https (yay!) so you can change the URL as Stefanie noted, but one thing you'll need to watch out for is the http links you have created in a page; people will need to right-mouse click on those and open in a new tab because Canvas will not open an http link.

So, for example, on that homepage, there is a link to the current season:

http://kickapoospeechdebate.weebly.com/current-season.html 

Please visit our current season page; this is where permission slips will be posted,

That looks like it is going to open an http link, so people will need to know to right-mouse click and open it in a new tab outside of Canvas. There might be a default in Weebly to open all links in a new tab (that is what I do with blogs that I embed in Canvas); I've never built a Weebly site myself, so I am not sure about that. 🙂
