Working on my first Xibo rollout. I have a webpage that I need to display in my layout that is hosted on a local server. It is for a manufacturing monitoring solution and displays a summary of machine uptime, downtime and efficiency. The URL lists the ip address of the server, then has parameters to pass a username, password, and specific dashboard within the program itself to display. Entering the url into the link field for a webpage in my layout and then trying to preview the layout makes the whole browser redirect from the CMS to the link I entered.
Here I have entered the link to the page on my local server:
If I turn off pop-ups and redirects in the browser I am designing this in (tried chrome and FF) it stays on the design view but shows this:
However, If I enable pop-ups and redirects, even just clicking on the “Design” option from the Layouts screen in the CMS will open up the layout but then automatically redirect the entire page (CMS) to the link I have entered for the webpage in that layout.
I am hoping that someone will be able to help me understand what is causing this. I have no issue browsing to this URL manually in any browser.
