Embedding external content in Your Drupal Site

Complexity Level: Intermediate

This is an intermediate topic. You will need to possess some basic understanding and have some experience with Drupal content editing.

Permission Level

There are many third-party content generators that allow you to embed content on your web site. This document shows the basic function of embedding a piece of external content using code provided by the external content generator. 

Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1: Create a basic page to embed your content

Login to your Drupal site and create a new basic page to hold your embedded survey or form. Just give it a title and save it. If you need assistance with logging in or creating a new page, please review these instructions:

Logging into Drupal CMS

Adding or Editing Pages

Step 2: Add Embed Code to Your Page

Once you have created a new page, go back and edit the page you created, and switch to source code view. The source code button is the last button on the right at the top of the Body of the new page. See image below:

Note about Scrolling Forms

By default, unless your content is very short, this embed code may not allow your entire content piece to be visible in one frame and may require the user to scroll. It is best to adjust the height variable in the embed code until the entire form is visible without a scroll bar. 

Step 3: Save and View your Page

After you have placed the embed code above in your place, make sure to save your page. Then view the page in a browser, and make sure the content loads within your page.

If you don't see the content show up in your page, then there is something wrong with the embed code or the permissions on the content you are trying to embed. It must be content that is publicly available and that does not require a password to view.
