Thank you for making these awesome videos. Is it possible to embed a Google spreadsheet in my Google site with all the features still available (filters, images and formulas), please advise. Thanks again!!
Great video thanks! Is there a way to embed a code that will automatically scroll down the page to another section? For example on my FAQ page of my website i want to list the questions at the top, and when you click on one, it scrolls to the answer further down the page.
Very nice video. Thanks !.
This video helps to improve the layout, make the site look good etc. ..ie the UI part Thats one aspect of a webapp.
The other requirement of a webapp is Business logic which usualy involves writing code and that means developers getting involved.. or does it ? The website below demos a way for non developers to add business logic to forms by coding the business logic as Formulas in a Spreadsheet and linking HTML to Spreadsheet.
See this at : https://www.colinrebello.com/GoogleForm.html
They're has to be an easier way to do this... Is this a free builder? Dragging and dropping seems so much easier with other paid builders.
I want to use Google for easy integration with other Google products I use, and seemless functionality in the Google ecosystem.
Hi, welcome to our community! I hope yoi fins many more tips and trick or things you can use. In regards to the cards, i wnated to create something that looked like the material design language with a hover effect. I juat liked the look of it. You could use it to highlight different products, ideas, people, etc.. on your website.
+Najah R nice website. It would be even better if your site address was "worldofmarshmellow. com" or something like that instead of "sites.google.com....". And the footer at the bottom says "Made with Google Sites".
I particularly don't like that. I imagine you can change the footer within the code, but the domain name has to be in the address bar of the browser, and a favicon image should be placed on the tab for the most professional look. It would just make your content look that much more credible and polished and less amateur-ish feel.
I still like the content on your site in spite of all that. Your videos are totally professional quality and the mixes for the songs are quality too. Good job!
You certainly can. You will have to copy the oart of the code where you insert the image. Look for the code that repeats itself 3 times ( looks like <img /> ) then copy the vlock if cose however many times you want. Hope this makes sense.
I tried to do the slider thing but my sharing link for my photos from Google Drive does not look like the one you've posted unfortunately :-(
It looks like this: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1IE7HE9qw78SHYXbpJr-TNBMw-_ulZoAN/view?usp=sharing there is no id= any more
However I have worked out that you just need to take the ID which is the bit after file/d/ .... and before the /view?usp=sharing and add it on to the end of the code you put of https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id= then it will still work.
Yes. If you check the description of the video, you will find the link to use when files have been shared. You need to change the shared file into a hosted file by using this url trick. Glad you found an answer to your problem!
Wow very much thanks !!!
It was an excellent guide !!
I wanted to ask please, I saw your video also on adding a personal domain to the site, but I have a private Google Account ... so if I understand correctly, I have no chance to change the domain to my personal domain?
This tutorial is amazing. but need help!
I am sure that I used the code correctly for creating the slide show.
in the preview, the pictures are working but when I paste the code on my google sites they disappear.
could you help me ?
Thank you so much, this adds a ton of possibilities to my nonprofit's backend site.
Quick question: would it be possible to mix some of the native embed options (like Youtube videos or especially charts imported from Google Sheets) into these bootstrap setups?
For example, could someone embed auto-updating google charts into the accordions you showed?
Thank you so much for your thoughts!
+Flipped Classroom Tutorials let me try that out and I'll post back. I have been using WordPress for the past few years and I sure would like to sing if my website experience. That's why I'm thinking of using Google sites. Thanks again!!! 😂
You can definitely do that. Make sure the files are viewable to anyone with link, then using an iframe code you can embed the file using a url trick. Change the word 'view' into 'preview'. That should do the trick.
Should look like this:
width="300" height="150" src="https://drive.google.com/file/d/123xyz/preview">
Thanks a lot for the amazing video. But sadly somehow it doesn't work for me. No matter what code I try to embed (even the simplest ones I can imagine) the area is just white. It looks just like the area in your video before it loads the slideshow but loads no further. I have a great internet connection so it can't be loading problems.
Does anybody have an idea what could be the reason?
Did they take away the ability to control access to certain pages in the new google sheets? In the old version, I used to have certain pages that could only be viewed by specific google user accounts. I guess that ability is gone now.
Thank you for a great tutorial. I got really excited thinking that this technique would fix all the New Google Site shortcomings. So I followed your tuts, then I added a Bootstrap Jumbotroon with drop shadow and all...but my excitement was short-lived. The embedded code works fine on a desktop screen but it doesn't work on small screens, as the iframe scales down proportionally cropping the content inside. Have you come across this issue and know of a solution?
Cheers and thanks again for your generosity in sharing your knowledge
Just tested the accordion example, as well as embedding html with inline styles. In both cases the iframe will scale down and add a scroll bar, when viewed in a small screen, which is not an elegant solution. So as far as I can see all these examples of embedding Bootstrap assets and code have no use in a real word situation where sites need to be fully responsive. The only one that seems to work across all screen sizes is the slide show module.
Did you do anything special when you downloaded the avatars from Androidify? When I download them they seem to have partially inverted colors. Is there something I'm doing wrong? I appreciate any help with this anyone can offer!
Holy crap! It's about time! This has been the most informative and helpful tutorial of advanced Google Sites operations I've ever come across. And I've been looking for a LONG time! Thank you! Massive thumbs up!
Thank you for the tutorial! One of the features was what I was looking for (collapsible buttons). I'd like to change the color of the text in the box, not the header. I've played with trying to over-ride the CSS but was unsuccessful. Do you have a suggestion?
This is great. I'm wondering if a link can be added to the collapsible? For example, Chapter 1 as the top visible layer, Chapter 1.1 as the first collapsible, and a link to a video or a picture with the Chapter 1.1 layer.
The new Google Sites layout it's plain horrible, even when I try to embed HTML code instead of using the default editor, it creates a sub-box window that's smaller than it's content and can't be expanded....it's just a mess.
Hi there, I've just used the "Collapsible" - working well :-) I have to place a manual with lots of chapters & sub-chapters (up to 15 per chapter) on a website; can I repeat the code or is there a better way to do this? Thanks & Greetings from New Zealand
Hey, great job on this. I need some help. Any idea why the custom HTML and CSS won't display in the Chrome window. It opens in firefox but not in chrome. I reset chrome to default and still nothing. Any ideas as to which setting I have "stitched on/off" by accident. Any help by anyone would be greatly appreciated.
Hello, first off thank you so much for your video it is really helpful but I'm having some trouble following it and hope you can help me. My images for the embedded carousel are not working and I tried to fix it with your hosting images video but nothing change, the only thing that appears on my site is just a blank box after I embedded the code (everything works well on the Bootstrap site). Please help me fix it, thank you.
I see absolutely increasing for them to disallow it at any time in the future. Embedding is a star date feature across the internet and having this within the new Google sites helps them transition from classic sites to new sites.
Anunciado durante a Gamescom 2017, uma das maiores feiras de videogame do mundo, o remake de Secret of Mana é, desde o início, um projeto pensado para agradar aos fãs de longa data e atrair jogadores novatos com um gameplay mais acessível.
Não se engane: a versão 2018 de Secret of Mana está mais para uma recriação do que uma mera remasterização com pequeno ajustes gráficos. O que temos aqui é um jogo completamente atualizado, com personagens redesenhados que ganharam nova vida graças à estética cartunesca.
Se, por um lado, as mudanças visuais foram projetadas para atrair novatos, por outro, algumas pessoas podem torcer o nariz pela simplicidade da nova abordagem - especialmente no que diz respeito aos cenários e criaturas do mundo.
Os cenários coloridos, por exemplo, ainda que estejam bem representados, trazem pouca variedade e deixam game com cara de “jogo de celular”. Isso fica mais evidente pela estrutura do game, já que muitas áreas estão completamente vazias e monótonas. Nesse quesito, Secret of Mana não tem vantagem em ter o fator nostalgia a seu favor.
O remake utiliza a clássica perspectiva de visão aérea, com a câmera posicionada acima dos personagens. É possível arrastar as bordas da tela manualmente para ter uma visão mais ampla do ambiente, o que é bastante útil para momentos de exploração.
O brilho da era noventista, mas com ressalvas.
Antes de tudo, é importante ressaltar que não há legendas em português, então o melhor a fazer é jogar com textos em inglês. A história continua sendo o ponto mais alto de Secret of Mana e, novamente, coloca o jogador no controle de três adoráveis personagens: Randi, Primm e Popoi - é possível jogar em modo cooperativo local para até três usuários.
O objetivo do grupo é lutar contra um império traidor ao mesmo tempo em que tenta recuperar o poder da Mana para restaurar a paz. O grande problema é que, embora os gráficos estejam atualizados, as animações ficaram presas ao passado. Em vez de despertar o sentimento de nostalgia, a falta de capricho passa a impressão de que o remake foi feito às pressas.
A jogabilidade à la Zelda foi aprimorada e permite desferir ataques de qualquer ângulo. Os inimigos também demonstram mais inteligência, uma vez que agora eles têm a opção de atacar a partir de qualquer ponto do cenário.
Ainda que a movimentação esteja mais fluida, parece haver algum problema técnico relacionado ao impacto dos golpes. Isso porque há momentos em que o personagem simplesmente não acerta o ataque, mesmo posicionado a uma distância razoável do oponente.
Além disso, a interface dos menus ficou bem aquém do esperado, com abas confusas e muito mal posicionadas. Há, no entanto, uma opção de mapear os itens essenciais nos botões do joystick ou teclado, o que facilita muito a organização na hora de combates mais exigentes.
O remake de Secret of Mana mantém a essência da pérola dos RPGs de ação dos anos 90, mas comete muitos deslizes ao tentar mexer em time que está ganhando. Menus engessados, sistema de combate com problemas técnicos e animações presas ao passado impedem o relançamento de ser a experiência definitiva, apesar de que possa valer para quem nunca experimentou o jogo original.
