Insert a Google Doc into your Cabanova Page

Back
You probably know that you can insert lots of external content in your Cabanova website. With a small trick, the list of embeddable things can get even bigger. For example, you can easily squeeze a Google Doc in, be it a presentation, text document or spreadsheet. You will need to get your hands dirty a tiny bit though. But with this simple step-by-step, it’s piece of cake.

  • Open your Google document, for this how-to I will open a Presentation document. Note that you can upload your own files, Power Point, Word, Excel and other formats to Google Docs and they will be converted to cloud documents.

  • Go to Share options to the right and choose Publish / embed

  • Click “Publish Document” button

  • No comes the “tricky” part.  Look at the HTML code. You need to copy the src attribute value. Simply, whatever comes after src=, without the quotes. See the screenshot:

  • This is the URL you need. In Cabanova, insert an External Content Widget and, in the Configure panel, paste the URL copied above.

Here is the final result, in the published page:

A last note, don’t forget to make your Google document public: after opening it in Google, click the same Share button at the right, then goto Sharing settings and click Change. Choose “Anyone with the link” and Save.
