Embed Parameters

Cristhian Parra edited this page Apr 12, 2017 · 17 revisions

You can easily embed your etherpad-lite into any webpage by using the embed tag provided. You can find this in the etherpad-lite toolbar when the application is up and running. Click on the icon that looks like this '</>' and you will see some code similar to this:

<iframe src='' width=600 height=400>

If you cut and paste this into any webpage (between the body tags) then etherpad-lite will 'magically' appear.

<iframe src='' width=600 height=400></iframe>

The above code will hide the chat AND the line numbers.
