Embedding a Google Doc in a web page
Note: the page assumes familiarity with basic HTML editing.
Embedding a Google doc in a web page is a very convenient way to let one or more people update content without HTML skills. Here is the process.
- In the Google Doc to be embedded, from the File menu, choose "Publish to the web."
- In the pop-up window, choose "Publish", and choose "OK" when asked to confirm.
- In the same pop-up window, you should now see the link to the page highlighted. The link is not what you need. Instead, click on "Embed."
- This should now display the "iframe" code that you can cut and paste into the HTML of your web page.
- Edit the iframe code to add a height and width for the embedded box for the doc. Example: height="300" width="500"
- Close the pop-up window with the "x" in the upper right hand corner.
Here is an example of an embedded Google Doc:
Note that instead of embedding a Google Doc in a web page, you can treat the doc itself as a web page. After choosing to Publish as above, just copy the "link" information. That is URL of your Google Doc. Example.
