Integration with OneNote not working
FusionOrb

Whenever I add a repl.it link to OneNote for Windows it fails to load and then recaptcha links start opening on my default browser. I've tried on multiple Windows PC's and with both versions of OneNote (Store and 2016). It does work on an iOS device. Does anyone know a workaround? I tried contacting Microsoft support but it was useless, so wondering if it might be an issue on repl.it's side.

I go this to work by changing my system default browser to Chrome. Oddly though it continued to work when I changed it back....

@clghunter2 And then it goes again. Seems like a temporary thing. Today it didn't work but reloading the same page 5 minutes later and it did work.

Very frustrating because I don't think you can log OneNote to see what's going wrong.

This seems to work okay in the web & mobile apps. In the desktop app it seems to work the first time I paste the link in, then it fails every time after that.

It does work on web and mobile just not the desktop app. Very annoying.

My code isn't showing up in onenote when I am integrating repl with onenote.

What link are you using? Does that link work if you paste it into the URL bar?

FusionOrb

@SixBeeps any repl link I’ve created new repls both signed in and not and they don’t work. The url is accessible directly in the browser.

@FusionOrb And does the site fail to load in browser, or is it something in OneNote?

FusionOrb

@SixBeeps the site fails to load in OneNote it begins loading but then having it embedded causes recaptchas to open in my browser and the recaptchas cant be solved so the issue remains.

SixBeeps

@FusionOrb Ah, I think that might be due to security reasons, and I don't think you can actually embed a Repl.

@clghunter2 The issue is with Repl's side. Because things like iframes and embedding can be potentially dangerous, Repl prevents it in the first place.

huntergj

@SixBeeps I'm really not sure about that. The embed works on the web version of OneNote. And Repl has a page on it.

@clghunter2 Oh, they must have changed things when I wasn't looking. Gtk.
