Hi All,

This is not pressing but i am following up on a request/idea from Ryan SSeslow about making it possible to embed MMM pages on the Commons. He uses this site for teaching, and I can imagine possibilities for other profs adopting the tool. We ran a workshop that featured this tool last spring, so there is some interest. I imagine these MMM pages could be embedded similar to how we allow google maps or timelines?

MMM website is here:

and sample here:

I'll look into this for the 2.0.5 release.

Sounds good, thank you!

  • Status changed from New to Deferred

I started to build this embed feature, but ran into a roadblock. Chrome returns the following:

Refused to display '' in a frame because it set 'X-Frame-Options' to 'deny'.

This suggests that has explicitly disallowed external embedding.

It looks to me like this isn't going to work, unless at some point releases some sort of embed code feature on their site.

Okay, good to know. It's too bad that MMM doesn't allow embeds. Thanks so much for looking into this Boone!
