Embedding Overview

Keep&Share provides you with the ability to embed any application (such as Photo Albums, Documents, Calendars, etc.) that you have created or uploaded anywhere on the web.

“Embedding” is whenever you are posting your applications into other websites or blogs. You can embed individual items (ex. a single photo) or groups of items (ex. a folder of documents) using a snippet of code generated by Keep&Share. This code can be copy and pasted into the HTML source of your web page.

Using our embedding codes

For our application embedding codes, we use iframes. An iframe is an internal frame that embeds one document within another HTML document. In this case, we are embedding a separate screen with the photo album into our web page.

One of the benefits of using an iframe when embedding Photo Albums is that any time you make an edit to your Photo Albums in your Keep&Share account, those changes will immediately be reflected in your embedded albums. All Photo Album changes will be modified instantly the second you click the “save” button in your account.

Another benefit to using our embedding codes is that they can be modified using simple HTML and CSS tags. For example, if you want to change the width and height of the iframe, you can do so.

Embedding publicly shared items

When you are embedding any Keep&Share applications, be sure that the Share Control for those items has been set to “Public.” If your embedded applications have been shared publicly, then anyone can view your items embedded on your web page, whether or not those viewers have a Keep&Share account.

However, if you do not want everyone to have access to your embedded applications, then set the sharing for those items to “Private.” By doing this, a Keep&Share log in box will display in the embedded iframe rather than the information that you embedded.

Once visitors have logged into Keep&Share and if you have shared your embedded item with them, they will be able to see your embedded item in the iframe.
