Hi all - I’m new to Discourse, and just figuring things out. We run a large computer science education nonprofit, and are looking to move our online teacher discussions from Google Groups to Discourse.
I’ve successfully embedded other cloud-based tools into topics already, by:
- Whitelisting their domains
- Making a new topic
<iframe src="<whitelisted domain>"></iframe>in the body of the topic
However, I’ve been unable to embed our own cloud-based IDE. The IFRAME shows up blank. A quick trip to the developer tools shows that the http request went out, but was denied with error 307 - Internal Redirect (see attached screenshot). My theory is that this is happening because our domain points to an AppEngine instance, so a redirect is happening behind the scenes and Discourse is blocking it for security reasons. Evidence to support this theory: embedding the AppEngine instance itself works, but using the domain doesn’t.
Since we periodically update the instance, it’s very important that the normal URL works. I’ve searched through other topics on the forum to no avail. Anyone got any advice for a n00b?
Thanks in advance!
