EventEditor chops "http:" off of webpage plugin src.

Reported by Bobby Richter | January 30th, 2012 @ 04:46 PM | in 0.2 - Ghostbusters (closed)

I just tried using "http://www.google.com" as the src attrib for the webpage plugin on http://mozillapopcorn.org/maker. Inspecting the src tag of the resulting iframe reveals it attempted to visit "//google.com" instead.

    I cannot get google or even github to work in an iframe in the most basic case.

    Example: http://jsfiddle.net/kZHUe/

    I can get other pages to work, even without the http: as demonstrated in the above fiddle.

    We remove the http: on purpose, and it should not be causing the problem.

    Any other ideas?

    This looks like it's something specific to the webpage plugin then. I'm not sure there is another option.

    Maybe we can show a link in its place if we detect the error.

    does anyone no of a program that will
    1. load video for example from: dailymotin-bliptv-video - popcorn does
    2. load a wepage with timeline - as popcorn does

    there are a lot of programs out there as knowledgevision but they want you to host on there website at a very high price.

    if you don't know of a program can you suggest a programmer that can writethis for a fee.
    i live in honduras and thinking programmers don't exist here

    Thanks for your feedback, Paul.

    Consider asking questions here, where they're more generally visible: https://groups.google.com/group/web-made-movies-working?hl=en

    I'm sorry you're having trouble with Popcorn Maker. It's very much a work in progress.

    Be careful though: as Scott pointed out, you won't be able to access webpages like yahoo or google with the popcorn webpage plugin -- they're blocked on the server end.

    Furthermore, if you can paste your code from "get code", we can examine it further and try to help.

    thanks i have tried my own website it isn't blocked by dreamweaver- empress -powerpoint
    but is blocked by popcorn . as with yahoo i get a serve reset notice.
    my website is http://www.bablau.com

    I'm not critical of any free project that looks as great as popcorn. i shouldn't have expressed my disapointment so strongly.

    I just tried to enter http://www.bablau.com into a webpage plugin on http://mozillapopcorn.org/maker/ and I was surprised to see it worked.

    To get it to work, my parameters looked like this:

    Id:
    In: 10
    Out: 40
    Src: http://www.bablau.com
    Target Container: Area1

    Nothing wrong with some critical feedback. It is how we get better.

    i really do appreciate your patients and help. it works!!!

    i really made an uninformed mistake. i was putting the http: code in the id form. i thought it was the right place since it displayed web can't be displayed server rest.
    perhaps in the help this should be explained for novice as i.

    again thanks for you patients and help

    i can't find where the "save project" saves the file.
    Is it working?

  • Scott Downe

    Scott Downe February 2nd, 2012 @ 05:08 PM

    save project saves it via browser local storage.

    And just an fyi, that id parameter on webpage will most likely eventually be removed. It is pretty pointless now.

    • Milestone changed from Design 2.0 to 0.2 - Ghostbusters
    • Milestone order changed from “4” to “0”

    I'm not sure we have a clear solution for this.

    If we want to warn people, we should. It might imply a fail-harness for plugins in Butter.

    • Milestone order changed from “1” to “0”

    scott i can't find browser local storage. can you help me?

  • Scott Downe

    Scott Downe February 7th, 2012 @ 01:41 PM

    Browser local storage is less like regular file storage, and more for internal use of a website.

    So, we can setup popcorn-maker to store data that only popcorn-maker cares about, and not something that can be accessed outside of popcorn-maker.

    It allows state of popcorn-maker to be kept between closing and re opening the webpage.

    Probably what you are looking for is export.

    • State changed from “assigned” to “resolved”
    • Assigned user cleared.

    The default editor no longer chops off the http:// portion of the url for webpages, there is not much we can do for people blocking their websites in iframes.
