  1. Can you please tell me how to add a voki to a google site. I have added the enbeded code for my voki but it doesn’t come up, I’m left with a white box.



    1. Hi Emma,

      It seems that for security reasons in the latest version of most modern browsers, http iframes no longer load in https pages by default. The iframe gadget used to embed the Voki is broken for all browsers. This is not a Google Sites issue or a Voki issue but a Google Chrome issue (or issues for any newly updated browsers). It seems that a lot of educators who uses Google Sites for class are having the same issue with other applications. We will be keeping an eye out for any solutions!
