Can you integrate Google Docs and Wordpress?

    Hey guys. After racking my brain and scraping the web trying to find an answer, I have decided to come to the HP community and ask a question about a blog I am building for a group that I am part of.

    The President wants a Google Docs survey on the Wordpress blogsite (which is acting as our website), with a button to access the survey. Is this possible.

    Basically, click the button, access survey, survey results are saved, and done.

    I have read that Google Docs and Wordpress do not work in conjunction with each other and you have to actually change some of the script, etc etc.

    Any ideas? Thanks all!

    Wordpress accepts HTML code, which Google generates, so you should be able to insert the survey directly into your blog posts or pages. One problem could be the formatting, so you may want to look into a suitable theme for that.

    Otherwise, you can create a linked image - namely a button that will bring the visitors straight to the survey on Google's site.

      Ahhh, yes. I just figured it out! I have like 100 things going on inside my head, kind of like a bunch of bouncy balls going all over the place. Sometimes I have to bring it all together and move one thing at a time...ha!

      I am going to make a linked image as you suggested and bring the user to the survey in a new window as you suggested as well.

      Thanks a ton!

      I was going through plugins and all. Nothing was really what I needed.

    You can insert Google docs in to a wordpress theme, If you want the survey on your site, go to 'create a page' and then press teh html tab, insert the code there. 

    If the code is held within an iframe there are plenty of available widgets which can re-allow iframes on wordpress.

      Thanks sky. I actually installed the code, but it's showing up as a web page and not an executable survey. I need the survey to be executable by other companies...

      Any thoughts? I'm still digging away at it. Actually wanting to catch up on the 85% thread that Nelle started. It's getting entertaining. smile

          I may have to use that. This guy wants the Google Docs survey linked to the site, and I don't think this is going to do the trick. We'll see, but I'm still looking into implementing a Google Docs survey into WP. Why can't this be simple...
