Improvements in Content Modules

To enhance security in Groupsites, we're changing how we handle the cool widgets and videos you add that use javascript. Javascript (HTML <script> tags) can be present in the embed codes you copy from other websites when you add widgets, video or other interactive content to a Groupsite via content modules.

Starting May 3, 2010:

When you embed widgets or video, you'll have the option to enter a module height. The Welcome Text, Freeform Text and Embed Widget/Video modules will include the option to set height in pixels or ems. For example:

Set Module Height


If your code includes javascript, you'll need to set a height for the module. You don't have to be an expert. Our modules will prompt you to enter a height if your code does include javascript. See a screen shot.

You may need to resize existing content modules. Modules you may have already placed in your Groupsite that contain javascript will default to a height of 220 pixels. If your content is taller, it may appear cut off. To correct this, you'll need to edit the module and and set it to a larger height.

Javascript will be restricted to content modules.

    I've tried to add a widget from Internet Polyglot and it keeps telling me "there is no scalable code".
    Also, your message said it would automatically ask us to input a size but there was no option whatsoever to do this.
