Embed help for Webflow


(Brett Combs) #1

I am confused by the various step by steps for placing an HTML export from hype into Webflow.

I have uploaded the folder to google drive and set it as public.

I found a forum post

This seems to say I just give the exact URL of the HTML file. I think that is
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1B2K0JGJ49wNBPda5iqIEJealeJej5Vqi?usp=sharing

Here is the embed panel in webflow.

What do I put in here? Where do I get what I put in here? Is this it?

a href=“https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1B2K0JGJ49wNBPda5iqIEJealeJej5Vqi?usp=sharing
/”

Thanks

First, you need a web server to properly display HTML files. While Google Drive allows public sharing, it is not a web server and will not display the pages directly to browsers.

So step one is that you need to get an actual web host. There are some sites that offer free/cheap hosting (like neocities mentioned in the wix post), or you can go with more dedicated approaches and your own domain name (here at Tumult we use WebFaction but there are plenty of great options).

After you have a web host, you’ll use a program (typically SFTP-based) to upload your files to that host. You’ll then be able to view them on the web via a URL.

Finally, this URL can be entered with the <iframe> code as in the wix post.
