How to check whether a web page or link is embeddable

You can use iframely, a suggested external free tool, to check whether the websites/links you would like to add to Brella are embeddable.

Nowadays, creating an event requires more tech skills when such are in a virtual environment. One of the most commonly used to integrate materials and other links into the Brella platform is iFrame technology.

πŸ€” What is an iFrame? An iFrame is an element of a website HTML structure that allows embeddable content to be showed alongside other website content.

You can embed webpages and other links in the iFrames on:

To embed a website, you will only need the page URL, but please note that many websites have embed restrictions. 

❗Note: First, check with the owner company/person of the site/page that such allows embedding, meaning that their site/page can be placed on other webs and platforms. Some have disabled this option as they want to avoid having their content in unwanted places.

πŸ‘‰One way of checking this yourself is by going to iframely. This tool can convert a URL/links into an embeddable format, if possible.

Different files and materials (videos, presentations, slides decks, images, websites) for the Sponsors booths, Schedule, or sidebar integrations shared through a Cloud service provider sometimes do not follow the embeddable requirement. 

Follow these steps to check if you can convert those URL/links into an embedded link:

1. Go to iframely
2. Click on  > Check URL at the top of the page
3. Insert the preferred link/URL, i.e., Brella's website - www.brella.io > Click the yellow button 'CHECK IT'
4. Then, you'll get a message about whether the website is embeddable or not.

If you receive any of the options below, you can pull an embeddable URL that could be added to your event's Admin Panel in Brella.

πŸ‘‰Option 1 - File link from a Cloud service (GDrive, OneDrive, iCloud)

When adding a link from a file to be converted (i.e., https://drive.google.com/file/d/1janlx6/view); as a result, iframely gives the below code. You only need to copy the highlighted section in between the quotation marks and paste it in the admin panel wherever needed.
