X-Frame Origin Embed Error

(David Balderston) #1

Sorry, I know there have been other topics about this, but I cannot seem to get it figured out at this point. I have a fresh install of discourse on DigitalOcean using the App, and a Ghost blog. I have the allowed host as the root of my website, and have pasted the code into Ghost, but constantly get the "Refused to display 'http://community.howtoghost.com/embed/comments?embed_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ghostforbeginners.com%2Fhosting-and-installing-ghost%2F' in a frame because it set 'X-Frame-Options' to 'SAMEORIGIN'." error.

From what it looks like, since I have the host in discourse, this shouldn’t be a problem, but after a few days of trying, I cannot get it to work. Have tried both www.site.com and just site.com, neither work. Does anyone have any ideas? I would really appreciate the help.

Actual Embedded Ghost Code:

<div id='discourse-comments'></div>

<script type="text/javascript">
  DiscourseEmbed = { discourseUrl: 'http://community.howtoghost.com/',
     discourseEmbedUrl: 'https://www.ghostforbeginners.com' + {{url}} };

   (function() {
    var d = document.createElement('script'); d.type = 'text/javascript'; d.async = true;
    d.src = DiscourseEmbed.discourseUrl + 'javascripts/embed.js';
    (document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0] || document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0]).appendChild(d);

Fill out the “cors origins” site setting with www.ghostforbeginners.com and restart the server ./launcher restart app.

Thank you for the reply riking. Do you make these changes in the app.yml? In the app.yml I have tried:



DISCOURSE_CORS_ORIGIN: 'www.ghostforbeginners.com'


DISCOURSE_CORS_ORIGIN: 'www.ghostforbeginners.com*'

and a few others like including https and what not.

None of which change the outcome. Still get the same x-frame problem. I tried adding them under the env: section, and also near the bottom with no change.

Well, that should have worked as well.

Any other ideas by chance? It seems like Discourse is restarting, but is it possible it isn’t taking the configs for whatever reason?

Hi I Tried multiple option by adding into app.yml. But its not working. Still throwing error "

Refused to display ‘’ in a frame because it set ‘X-Frame-Options’ to ‘SAMEORIGIN’.

Actually I’m trying to render ‘’ in iframe local host.

** DISCOURSE_DB_PASSWORD: ‘discourse’**

How to fix it.?

I think you would be better off coming up with a different approach

Can you tell us how to do it if we want to integrate it in my website ?

(Mittineague) #9

If I wanted to include Discourse content into a non-Discourse site I would use either the RSS or JSON or both.

Do you have any reference so I can get more info how to do it and to identify pros/cons for my requirement ?

(Adi Adi) #11

Like demo or integration steps ?

Hey Guys,
Its working now, I forgot to rebuild the app.
./launcher rebuild app.
