    Troubleshooting Interactivity

    Ian Levy

      I was able to embed my visualization in one wordpress blog with the code below and no problems. When I tried in another wordpress blog the visualization would appear but with a play button superimposed on top. When you push the play button it just kicks you back to the top of the webpage. Any ideas what's going on?


      <script type="text/javascript" src="http://public.tableausoftware.com/javascripts/api/viz_v1.js"></script><div class="tableauPlaceholder" style="width:1440px; height:791px;"><noscript><a href="#"><img alt="Sheet 1 " src="http:&#47;&#47;public.tableausoftware.com&#47;static&#47;images&#47;Pl&#47;PlayoffLegs&#47;Sheet1&#47;1_rss.png" style="border: none" /></a></noscript><object class="tableauViz" width="1440" height="791" style="display:none;"><param name="host_url" value="http%3A%2F%2Fpublic.tableausoftware.com%2F" /><param name="site_root" value="" /><param name="name" value="PlayoffLegs&#47;Sheet1" /><param name="tabs" value="no" /><param name="toolbar" value="yes" /><param name="static_image" value="http:&#47;&#47;public.tableausoftware.com&#47;static&#47;images&#47;Pl&#47;PlayoffLegs&#47;Sheet1&#47;1.png" /><param name="animate_transition" value="yes" /><param name="display_static_image" value="yes" /><param name="display_spinner" value="yes" /><param name="display_overlay" value="yes" /><param name="display_count" value="yes" /></object></div><div style="width:1440px;height:22px;padding:0px 10px 0px 0px;color:black;font:normal 8pt verdana,helvetica,arial,sans-serif;"><div style="float:right; padding-right:8px;"><a href="http://www.tableausoftware.com/public?ref=http://public.tableausoftware.com/views/PlayoffLegs/Sheet1" target="_blank">Powered by Tableau</a></div></div>

          Hey Ian,


          Is the blog that's not working wordpress.com or wordpress.org?


          Tableau relies on javascript and/or iframe support for embeds to work, but wordpress.com supports neither. I have not seen a workaround, other than moving your blog to a hosted instance of Wordpress where you can enable javascript and iframes.

            They are both wordpress.org sites, and as far as I know they are both running the most updated version of wordpress, 3.3.2. The one where the visualization worked is hosted by BlueHost. The one where it didn't work is hosted on a private server, so I'm not sure if that would have anything to do with it.
