How to embed from Venngage using <script>

I recently found to be a great tool to use for info graphics and posters. However their embed code uses <script> tags to embed. When I try to use the embed code they give me it does not show up in canvas. Does anyone know if canvas supports that type of embed?

 @andrew_starnes , no, the Canvas HTML Editor does not support the <script> tag. For a complete list of what the HTML Editor does support, please refer to the Canvas HTML Editor Whitelist.

As to whether this embed can be accomplished differently--through an iframe of a link to an HTML file in the course files, for example--I'll defer to the advice of the‌ group, and I've shared this question with them.

Hi  @andrew_starnes ‌...

I wanted to check in with you because there hasn't been any new activity in this particular discussion topic since your question and the response from stefaniesanders‌ on February 14th.  Have you had a chance to review Stefanie's response.  If so, do you have any other questions and or comments related to your initial posting that the Community could help answer?  Please feel free to mark Stefanie's response as "Correct" if you feel that it answers your question.  For now, I am going to mark your question as "Assumed Answered", but that won't prevent you or others from posting additional replies below.  I hope that's okay with you.  Looking forward to hearing back from you soon, Andrew.


Hi  @andrew_starnes ‌! Just to follow up on what Chris and Stefanie said, you can indeed use a script, but it has to be uploaded first as a FILE (just paste the script into a plain text editor and use an .html suffix), and then you can use an iframe to display the results in PAGE. I've got step by steps for doing that with Twitter widgets, Pinterest, and Flickr... same technique works for all three, and I would guess the same for your Vennpage. Fingers crossed!
