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!!
+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.
This doesn't work cross-browsers on Firefox the embedded code didn't even load. This is a no-go.
And you particular, load a lot of libarys on which you have no control over, which could be closed in the feature, and you certainly don't know if it won't change in these libaries. That's just stupid to be honest.
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.
Omer Aviram Hi, On. Mobile now and the carousel seems to be working fine. I did use very large files for the example so loading can be an issue. What are you experiencing on a Wi-Fi connection? Not sure what could be causing this problem.
Hello, Wonderful Tutorial! I just had one question. For the cards section, I'd like to add my own character instead. I created one on the androidify website you put up, but what next? I'm not sure how to get an "export view" link. And when I click on the little Google icon underneath my avatar it just comes up with an error page. Can you please advise me on what to do? Thank you
Hi you would upload the image to your Google Drive, set it as public and use one of the following methods to get a hosted image link: https://youtu.be/zhwYRPImH9E another method is to amend the url like this: Next: Get a usable URL for a Google Drive image by using the image's ID and appending it to this URL:
https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=YourIdHere hope this helps you.
Hi. You would have to manualy create a call button and embed this as html. The first step is to find a button image or create one you will use. Then you change the following html code: <a href="tel:5555555555"><img src="http://www.domain.com/phone-icon.jpg"></a> replace the 55555 with your number and the link domain with the link to the image file. Hope this helps.
There is a simple workaround that will allow you to host an image on Google drive. Here's a video I made in this last year https://youtu.be/zhwYRPImH9E do check the comment section if that video as well. As since making it a shorter and url trick has become available as well. Hope this helps and I'm happy to answer your questions. Welcome to the channel and community!
Hi Seth, thank you for making an advanced tutorial. The features you included are very useful. Plus of course, unlike a lot of Google Sites tutor, you really prepared your course materials. Plus you started by showing the finished work (what are we going to build) which means you really know how to teach this type of topic :-)
Got one question for you: Is it possible to make the source text of the Accordion dynamic, like it's taken from specific rows of Google Sheets, instead of hardcoded embedded text? Thanks a lot and more power to you!
+Cori Ortega first of all, thank you so much for taking the time and leaving a comment! To answer your question, in principle it sgould be possible to make the code dynamic by referencing an external source in the html code. I have personally never done this as using tools such as sheetu and awsometables have always allowed me to embed sheets data in a visually appealing way. I might look into thia over the summer as it sounds like a fun little project to play around with.
Thank you for this video tutorial, it's plain, simple & straight forward.
You teach, using video medium extremely well.
I'm very grateful for the service you give.
I will certainly subscribe to your channel. (& give it a thumbs up)
Thank you for such a great tutorial. When I tried a card in my site, along with the shadow effect I also see a text "Custom embed" appearing on mouse hover. Is it possible to remove that or modify it into something else?
Excellent video. Definitely going to implement slideshow & collapsible on the google website I am working on.
One question, can I add images under collapsible. Like under "item 1", add image and description? How can I do this?
I've never done this but in theory this should be possible by putting your img tag inside the collapsable. The image tag looks like this <img src='UrlOfImage'> that would go where your text usually goes. I might have a go at it myself tonight. + you can host the image on your Drive. ( https://youtu.be/zhwYRPImH9E ) hope this helps. Let me know how you get on.
Thank you for the great tutorial! I wanted to place text under one of the accordion folds with a link. Can you tell me how I would go about doing that? I was able to place text but could not link it. Thanks in advance.
Hi you would add the following code into the text part of your accordian code : <a href="https://eduflip.net">I'm a link</a> Change the Text in between the " " to any URL you want and the text in betwee > and < to be the text that will be highlighted. I hope this makes sense. If not, give me shout :-)
You would simple copy the section that you can see repeated three times (with the link and source of your image) and add that section into the code to add more than 3 images. The same for a collapsible; look for the repeated code and look for a pattern of 3 time the same code. Then, copy one section. Hope this helps.
There doesn't seem to be a way to dive into the actual html in such way that you can tweak the seo, however this slideshow will contribute to you sites ranking, as will other content. In addition to this, whenever I've run tests on keywords and created blank sites with the keyphrase in the websites name, Google appears to give websites created using Google Sites a bit more love and rank them higher than they should.
Your video on Google Site is awesome. Thank you for the information shared.
Google site is an awesome website generator, and you make it easy and enjoyable.
But, I have 2 questions ;
* how to add hyperlink to each pictures of the carousel
* is it possible to get an " autoresized image " carousel to ensure the carousel has always the same height ?
Thank you for your support.
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.
