Editable Spreadsheet on forum page

RainbowGinge
How can I transfer a google sheet onto my forum and have it fully editable?  Or, indeed, can I?

"Transfer" wouldn't be the term I'd use, but yes, you can allow access to another web page within a Nabble post.

You must check the "Message is in HTML Format" box and you then use the HTML "iframe" tag.

In my test I went to the Google sheet I wanted in my forum, copied its URL into the iframe tag so it looked like this:
<iframe src="https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/and-the-rest-of-the-URL-of-the-sheet-concerned" height="500" width="100%"></iframe>
As you see I also specified a height (in pixels) and width (all of the available space).

I haven't tested this exhaustively, and I would expect some issues when editing a large sheet for those using a smartphone to access the page, but in principle it should work.

Many thanks.  Followed your instructions and have the sheet on my forum and, so far, working just fine.
