Embedding Presentations Into Confluence Using Iframes

Configure your Iframe with its own scrollbar independent of the surrounding page's scrollbar to embed Ardoq Presentations.

Iframe stands for "inline frame." With the iframe tag, we can embed Ardoq Presentations within the current Confluence page.

Although an Iframe behaves like an inline image, it can be configured with its own scrollbar independent of the surrounding page's scrollbar. We can set the frame border, width, height, and other iframe attributes to define the presentation of the content on the page.

How to Put An iFrame Into Confluence

  1. Confluence -> "Create" button

  2. Go To Insert > View More

  3. Search for Iframe

  4. Paste your entire Ardoq Presentation into the URL field. Optionally you can scroll down further and specify other attributes. Typically Height and Width are used. We recommend the following values: Height = 700; Width = 100%

  5. Save and Publish


  • My embedded presentation is stuck on a loading screen

If the loading screen is shown for a long time, it could be that Confluence has been set up to use an Iframe-macro that blocks scripts from running.

  • My embedded presentation shows a login screen

If this happens, it is likely that the browser's security settings block Ardoq from authorizing you to view the presentation. A workaround for this is to make the presentation public, meaning that everyone with a URL can see the presentation without being logged in. Only admins can make a presentation public, and you should only do this if the presentation does not contain sensitive data.

  • My embedded surveys shows refused to connect and presentation works fine

Note: Currently, we don't allow iframing surveys for the user's protection.

  • It is recommended to utilize one iframe per Ardoq presentation rather than making individual iframes for each slide in a single Ardoq presentation.

    The usage of multiple iframes leads to Ardoq's web application launching several times concurrently, which causes the browser to run out of resources and causes bad performance.
