Could anyone point me to a how-to for embedding a googledoc spreadsheet into a page on my wordpress blog? I'm pretty much a programming newb, but I do learn quickly. :)

Thanks

  1. Open your document.
  2. Click on the Share tab at the top right.
  3. Under Advanced Options, check the box labeled Anyone can [ SELECT PERMISSION ] this document WITHOUT LOGGING IN.
  4. Select the permission you'd like to grant (probably View).
  5. Copy the URL given to you beneath the checkbox.
  6. Create a link to that URL within your blog.

To actually embed your spreadsheet rather than linking to it, you'd probably need to use something like an IFrame. More information about Iframes is available here.

The iFrame is exactly what I'm looking for. I want to embed the sheet so my guildmates don't have to leave the site to see the dkp chart.

Thank you so much!
