Embedding images

LUNA's Embed allows you to customize the view you want to share by creating embeddable web widgets which can then be placed in other applications such as blogs, forums, and wikis. You can embed search results, Slide Shows, Presentations, the LUNA Workspace, Media Groups, and detail views into other applications. Please note some of the features are only available to UOM users.

  • Click on the Embed link in the LUNA Main Menu.
  • You'll be re-directed to the Embed This page wherein you'll have the following options to further customize this web widget:
  • Select either JavaScript, or Forum code.
  • Select either Object Tag code or I-Frame code (*see Note below)
  • You can change the width, height and border colour of the widget.
  • Choose whether or not to include the image display controls.
  • Choose whether or not to include the display panels (only for LUNA Workspace).
  • As you customize the web widget you can preview the changes in the preview pane. When you're finished simply copy the code below the preview pane and paste it into your wiki, website, blog or forum. The code will also include a link back to LUNA so those who you share the web widget with can easily find their way to your original collections.
