Overview

The Text/HTML panel allows you to display simple text, or web content, in your dashboards. The content can be provided as directly inputted Markdown or HTML, or alternatively, you can supply a URL and the target will be rendered within the dashboard panel.

  • View – view the panel in fullscreen mode
  • Edit – edit the panel configuration
  • Share – options for sharing the panel contents with others, both internal and external to your organization
  • More
    • Duplicate – place a duplicate of the panel on the current dashboard
    • Copy – copy the dashboard configuration in order to add the panel to another dashboard
    • Panel JSON – view/edit the JSON underlying the panel configuration

Options

Enter the content for your text panel.

  • Mode – specify Markdown, HTML or Link
  • Content – enter the markdown, HTML, or URL to be displayed

The Link mode can be used to embed any Statseeker report into your dashboards:

  • Run the report from the Console (not the Reporting panel), and copy the URL
  • Paste the URL into the Content field
Note:

  • When supplying HTML content, you can treat the content box as the body tag of your HTML page
  • Links in HTML content should be configured to open in a new tab/window
  • When using Markdown mode, HTML content will render as plain text, not HTML
  • When using Link mode to add external content to your dashboards, the embedded page must use the same protocol (http/https) as the Statseeker server, and must allow embedding (i.e no X-Frame-Options: sameorigin header)
