Embedding Note and Notebook

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

RE: Embedding Note and Notebook

 

Between six (6) and eight (8) months back I could embed an entire notebook; it appears this is no longer the case. URLSs produced by Evernote seem no longer embeddable and the shared notes have a non-responsive size (the restricted "skinny" LxW.) Perhaps I missed something?

 

Also can Evernote explain why the virtual editor in the forum is more intuitive than the Evernote interface?

 

Thank you,

It's not clear what you mean by "embedding a notebook" here. Do you mean creating a link to an Evernote notebook? Which client were you using (Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, web, etc.), and how did you do that? Ditto for "shared notes have a non-responsive size (the restricted "skinny" LxW.)".

 

Also can Evernote explain why the virtual editor in the forum is more intuitive than the Evernote interface?

The forum was written by a third party, not by Evernote. It's written to expressly be a user forum, which is a UI that many people are familiar with. Evernote is not a user forum. If you have an issue with an Evernote clients's UI, you'll need to be more specific.

Hello,

 

RE: RE: Embedding Note and Notebook

 

Interesting, I thought I was being clear; must have been too technical. Yes, I could embed entire Notebooks. So, to be non-technical, I would grab the Notebook shared URL and write the embed code.

 

Perhaps, you're refering the user forum in comparison to the business: Evernote; I wasn't. I "clearly" referenced the virtual editor in the forum compared to the Evernote interface. So what is it you're talking about?

 

Thank you,

No, jefito was referring to the fact that Evernote didn't design or develop the forum software,including the editor. Someone else did. Therefore, the fact that the editors are different is not terribly surprising. Additionally, the forum software only has to run in a web browser. Evernote runs on multiple platforms.

Hello,

 

RE: RE: Embedding Note and Notebook

 

Perhaps you're right about his commentary, but not the programmable sense; however, as I stated, he was referring to EN as a company and not of the platform. He only confused himself "spamming" one-liners or two-liners throughout the forum, to increase his post count, something only amateurs do, to only void credibility.

 

More so, the point wasn't so much on who developed the forum software (right?) It was a matter of comparing capabilities between the two editors.

 

Thank you,

The things you are accusing Jeff of are simply not true. Jeff is not only a moderator of this board, but VERY knowledgable about how Evernote works. He is also VERY helpful to users of this board. He clearly answered your question regarding the differences between the two editors.

Furthermore, I'd have to say every one of your posts here have been unclear. Not just to me & Jeff but you'll see at least one other moderator saying this on another thread you posted in. Perhaps it's a language barrier. I don't know. But I suggest you be nicer to those who are trying to help you.

Hello,

 

RE: RE: RE: Embedding Note and Notebook

 

We can probably agree to disagree about that person's commentary, but converting this thread to a "rant" thread helps no-one! The original point will be sent over to developers to ponder and return a value-added response. I appreciate your help.

 

Thank you,

You are quite incorrect. I was trying to help you. My post count is irrelevant, my credibility, such as it is, is not at issue. I was only "confused" because I found what you were trying to describe was unclear (I'd guess it's a language thing) -- that's why I asked you for clarification (and it's still unclear). By the way, I am a technical person; what you wrote was not too technical for me, it just lacked sufficient context for me to understand what you were talking about, it had unfamiliar terminology, and you used words that don't make sense in combination (I found "URLSs produced by Evernote seem no longer embeddable and the shared notes have a non-responsive size (the restricted "skinny" LxW.)" particularly cryptic).

On thing, though: I am indeed an "amateur", in the sense that I am not paid for this. Good luck with your problem, though, whatever the heck it is.

You might want to make a support request.  It's a good question.

To translate for the other respondents to the thread, the question seems valid (as difficult as the style/presentation may be to grok).

 

At one point you could embed in an HTML iframe or otherwise, a shared note, rather than just linking to it.

So display your shared evernote content inline with your own webpage, blog entry etc.

There's even ehow.com explanations.

 

It's not something I have occasion to do, but in response to the thread, I just tried freshly created links to both a note and a public notebook in an iframe in an HTML file on my desktop.

No dice.  Just comes up as a blank empty iframe.

It could be a bug.  They've been tweaking the CSS in the last little while and you'll find us wrestling with quirks where inline links within a shared note could not be clicked, depending on which client the note was shared with.

That seems resolved.

 

On the otherhand Evernote deals with a tremendous onslaught of spammy exploitation (some of which they manage to shoot their own foot off in), but you can imagine the windows of abuse that could be done here, and the abusers of shared notes may have wrecked your ability to embed.

I know I've flagged a good number of shared note abuse found through crafted google searches, but the volume seems to have really cut back, so they may be being successful here, though with harsh collateral damage to legitimate use cases.

Isn't that always the way of things.

I could be wrong but I thought the gist was more function over form.

Hard to tell, no specifics were offered.

Thanks for the context on the actual issue, though. That makes it more comprehensible to me, even if it's not in my wheelhouse, and nothing that I would have ever tracked.

Noticed a hint of the embedding spam war in the source code of a shared note.

So can we embed a notebook or not? I want to be able to embed notebook folders in a secure website so my staff have easy access to it as i update notes etc...

 

Is there a work around? as i also just not get an empty iframe

This cannot be done and there is not workaround that I know of. It used to be possible, but I believe the problem arose when they switched to HTTPS for public notebooks which doesn't really jive with iframes. Elsewhere there's a post that explains it somewhere on these forums..when I'm on my desktop I'll post a link if I can find it,

You are better off making the notebook "public" (does not show up in search engines and is not indexed, so it is public only insofar as someone could stumble onto it by trying random combinations of URLs) and sharing the link with your employees, better yet, have them get Evernote accounts and share the note "privately" with them.
