Any way someone there could create a Wix store app to enable the Reftagger on Wix created websites?

They provide an HTML widget, but the Reftagger script will not run correctly in it.

There are many out there who would appreciate it greatly!

Thanks,

Andrew

Thanks for bringing up this concern again.  I'd asked about it last year and never received an answer so I completely forgot about it!  

Thanks again Andrew!

Thank you T.L. and Andrew,

We're considering support for Wix. To help evaluate what's necessary, can you share which websites you'd install Reftagger on? Feel free to respond in this thread, or message me on Faithlife.

Thanks,
Jim

I don't mind at all. I would like to use Reftagger on my personal blog site, www.thinkongod.org.

No content up yet, so don't rush over there. Sorry.

Thanks for responding to my post. I think many people would benefit from a solution to this issue.

This is a reply from a Wix person regarding the javascript issue.

"Unfortunately the only way to do so will be uploading it to an external hosting service, and then use an IFRAME to show it under your site. You could also have your CSS and Javascript code on separate files hosted externally,  and just give a reference to them on your HTML code."

Could Reftagger host the code alone on a special page and let Wix users try to reference it on our sites through our HTML widget?

Just a thought. If you would like to use my site for testing, I would be glad to help.

Thanks,

Andrew

Because of the way that Wix loads content from apps, it is not possible to use RefTagger with Wix.

RefTagger works by inspecting the content of a site when it loads, looking for Bible references and tagging them as necessary. On most sites, RefTagger has access to the entire page; however, because of browser security restrictions, it cannot do so if it has been loaded via an iframe.

Unfortunately, this is precisely how Wix loads all of its apps, including the HTML app. This means that RefTagger can only access the content within the HTML app that loads it.

If you want to continue to use Wix, you could place all of your "taggable" content within a single HTML app that also contains a reference to the RefTagger script, but in doing so, you'd lose most of the benefits of using Wix in the first place.

Aaaargh! Thanks for the info, David. I thought I was getting close with a google drive file containing the script but as you said, Wix would not run it against the rest of the site.

Well. That is no fun.

Thanks,

Andrew

As far as I know, the architecture of Wix has not changed significantly since the last post, so this is still impossible.

Hi Robert,

We haven't changed anything about Reftagger significantly in the past couple years, so not unless Wix has changed.
