    BB Code Media Site support for Google Spreadsheets (version 1.0) - Allows embedding of Google Spreadsheets by adding support under XenForo's BB Code Media Site Manager

    This resource / tutorial will help you add an entry for Google Spreadsheets to your BB Code Media Sites in your Admin Control Panel.


    1. Go to your Admin Control Panel > Home > BB Code Media Sites > Add BB Code Media Site.

    2. Here, enter the following information:

    Media Site ID: googlespreadsheet

    Site Title: Google Spreadhsheet

    Site URL: https://docs.google.com/

    Match URLs:

    Embed HTML:

    <iframe width='750' height='750' frameborder='0' src='https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?key={$id}&output=html&widget=true'></iframe>
    You may change the width and height to your liking (shown in the code above in blue).

    3. Click "Save the BB Code Media Site".

    4. To embed the document with the URL of a Google Spreadsheet, click "Embed Media" and paste the URL.

    I just tried with a spreadsheet now uploaded at my own Google Drive. It seems to be still working for me.

    Could you post a link to a document uploaded on your Google Drive and I could probably have a look?
