I would like to know if I can insert a Wolfram Alpha Widget into a content page? I have the embed code, but when I put it into the HTML editor on a content page, nothing appears.
Hello Brian M. Forster and Welcome to the Canvas Community. One of the stars of the Canvas Community is Laura Gibbs, and she found a workaround for putting Twitter's own widgets into Canvas in lieu of the Twitter LTI tool. Since her workaround deals with the same issue mentioned by Robert Carroll (stripped script), I bet it would work for your Wolfram widget as well. The steps are listed in her course Twitter4Canvas.
It may be possible to inject the widget using custom JS in your Canvas Themes... if you're at an institution that can customize the Canvas Instance.
Depending on whether you have a developer background (or potential access to a developer), you could also possibly build an LTI tool which would enable you to insert the widget as an alternative option.
If you are interested in going down that path, please let us know, I will also share this with the Canvas Developers group to see if anyone may have tinkered with this in the past.
Hope that helps!
