Getting a Navigation to Webpage cancelled

Kudos to you guys … this is GREAT piece of kit. Its flexibilty has enabled me to really cool things :smile:

After the compliments… a problem. :smile:

I am trying to bring up the weather widget up from this way cool site in Australia

I am using this link to generate the widget I want

This gives me a block of code to insert in Xibo web page.

It works fine in layout page. and even brings up it up in the design window.

BUT … when I roll out the layout to a Windows client. It comes up with the error.

Navigation to Webpage cancelled.

Tried both on the background page and create a new region. Tried a few security settings changes in IE in the client after googliing.

Wondering if it is conflicting with the way the client displays, with all of the /divs and /frames.

Tried deleting the cache on the client … nup :frowning:

Would really like to get it working,

Many thanks

Yes … it is/was 40C in Kal today…:frowning:

Hi Peter :smile:

So it seems to be that the link they provide is missing http:\\, so I made some random widget with code like this:

<div style="width: 210px;"><iframe style="display: block;" src="//" width="210" height="228" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe><a style="z-index: 1;position: relative;margin: -20px 0 0 0;text-indent: -9999em;height: 20px;display: block" href="">forecast for sydney airport</a></div>

Put it in a embedded HTML code module in Xibo.

So this is the important part


now if you add http like:


Then it does work correctly on both Android and Windows players.
And of course you can adjust the iframe size etc and probably customise it more (I didn’t click on too many options on their site) but yeah it seems to be ok now.


So here in Brighton, UK we have ahmm well different weather :smiley:

Bingo … even an HTML noob like me should have spotted it… Never occured to me that they would have a
syntax error.

Way cool widgets. The Forecast IO one seems to be more centred on the European/American areas. Nice though.

Many tx and a Merry Xmas

I am glad that it is working for you and I agree it’s a quite cool widget.

Merry Xmas to you too!
