Configure Widget

The website widget has a few settings that need to be configured and are as follows:

  • Website URL - This is the URL of the website we wish to show. Ensure you use a HTTPS website to view it in the layout preview.
  • Refresh - Determine how often the website refreshes, by changing the time in seconds
  • On Screen Keyboard - For Mac and Windows devices only you can choose wether to allow an on screen keyboard when needed for input fields on your website.
  • Load Width (px) - By default this is set to 'Auto-Fit To Zone Width', meaning your website will load at the pixel width of the zone it is in. If you want to load the website at a specific pixel width, untick the 'Auto-Fit' button and enter the value in pixels.
  • Scale - This function allows you to zoom in or out of a website. Leaving blank or entering the value '1' will load the site at normal, 100% scale. If you wish to zoom in on the site you can do so by adding values such as 1.1 (110%), 1.5 (150%) an so on. Then do the opposite for zooming out i.e. 0.75% for 75%
  • Left offset (px) - If you want to only show a specific section of a website this is where using the Left offset will come in. You can specify in pixels how far from the left of the website you wish to show in the zone
  • Top offset (px) - If you want to only show a specific section of a website this is where using the Top offset will come in. You can specify in pixels how far from the top of the website you wish to show in the zone. 

Once you are happy with your widget, click 'Save Changes' to go back to the zones playlist. If you have finished with the playlist, click 'Finish Editing Playlist' or the 'X' in the top right hand corner to go back to layout builder overview.
