Turning a topic into interactive fiction ;)


After whitelisting the URL, I embedded this iframe into a post in the Lounge for a bit of fun.

Result?: A fully working piece of classic Interactive Fiction embedded in a post that doesn’t look too out of place :slight_smile: (although you do need to manually scroll)

Why?: because you can

<iframe src="https://iplayif.com/?story=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.douglasadams.com%2Fcreations%2Fhhgg.z3" width="800" height="800" frameborder="0"></iframe>

Feel free to pull me up on security if you believe this is opening a hole … but iplayif.com is legit, I believe, here’s its GitHub page

In case you are not a Douglas Adams fan, you can find much more great work here.

I hadn’t used the Admin / Settings / Security / allowed iframes config setting before, but putting in https://iplayif.com/ in there and adding that iframe into a post worked great.


Yeah, it’s amazing how seamless the result can look :slight_smile:

PS Please don’t let it distract you too much from your interesting project, though :wink:


Oh wauw - only just discovered this, but THANK YOU!

Well, there goes my Sunday …
