It is possible to add JavaScript to a Rich Text box, so you could add the game if you had the JavaScript code:

  • Plain Text Editor tabAdd a Rich Text¬†box to your page.
  • Click add text.
  • Click the Plain Text Editor tab.
  • Paste the copied JavaScript code into this box and click Save Changes.
  • Refresh your page.

However, since your example is a Java applet (not JavaScript), this requires something a little different. :)

You can embed the web page into a box on your guide using an IFRAME. From my testing, I found that this worked well for that site in Internet Explorer & Firefox, but not so well in Chrome.

Just copy and paste this code into the Plain Text Editor in a Rich Text box (you can use the same instructions as above):

<iframe src=" .htm" height="425" width="800"></iframe>

You'll need to make sure the box is wide enough to fit the game: the width is set to 800px, so you'll want to add this to a page that has a 1 column layout...or with one column that is about 850px wide (the 2nd column would then have to be 117px wide).


Example of an iframe using the URL mentioned in the question.
