Using an embedded Slido event, you can connect with your online audience who can send questions and vote in polls directly from your website.

 

See an example below of how the embedded Slido Participant mode can look on your website:


 

Available in our Professional plan and higher.

Embedding Slido into a website


You can embed Slido Participant mode into your website by following these steps:


Here's a visual guide to how to get your embed code:
 



This is how the embed code looks. The "event hash" is unique for each event:

<iframe src="https://app.sli.do/event/eventhash" height="100%" width="100%" style="min-height: 560px;"></iframe>

 

If there’s no Privacy setting enabled on your event, everyone who opens a website with embedded Slido will automatically count as a joined participant in the Event Analytics.

 


 

Get separate links for Questions, Polls, or Ideas

 

You can navigate your participants directly to Questions, Ideas or Polls and Surveys if you have multiple menu items available in your app. Just add /questions, /polls, or /ideas to your event link to do so.

 

Example of the embed code with polls:

<iframe src="https://app.sli.do/event/7q0zb4jq/polls" height="100%" width="100%" style="min-height: 560px;"></iframe>

 


 

Adjust the size of the embedded Slido

 

You can change the height and width parameters of the iframe code to pixels and set the size you'd like to display:

 

<iframe src="https://app.sli.do/event/7q0zb4jq" frameborder="0" height="500px" width="720px"></iframe>

 


 

Embedding an event which has live video

 

In case you integrated live video into your Slido event and you need the video to be allowed to go into fullscreen, you have to add allowfullscreen or allowfullscreen="true" to your embed code.

 

Example of the allowfullscreen attribute in the embed mode:

<iframe src="https://app.sli.do/event/eventhash" height="100%" width="100%" allowfullscreen="true" style="min-height: 560px;"></iframe>

 


 

Embedding a single poll or a survey

 

You can embed a single poll or a survey to your website to collect votes:

 

file.php?view=Y&file=qfuvx0w7xp25j6m0qlfpw9gh84jppyjp.gif

 


 

Embedding multiple rooms

 

Before you start, make sure you created your multiple rooms.

"app.sli.do" stands for Slido Participant mode.

"wall.sli.do" stands for Slido Present mode.

 

Example of the embed code for specific Slido room:

<iframe src="https://app.sli.do/event/y2uums64?section=5afbb0e9-b5fe-4cad-a7f2-8a36dda17f33" height="100%" width="100%" style="min-height: 560px;"></iframe>

 


 

Pre-fill participants' data via query parameters

 

If you have already collected your visitors' details and would like to import this information into Slido, you can do so via query parameters. Please bear in mind that for the query parameters to pull the email information, you need to have the Require email option enabled in Slido. 

To get the final embed link for the Slido event, you’ll need to combine two components:


Example of the embed code with query parameters:

<iframe src="https://app.sli.do/event/7q0zb4jq/live/questions?lang=fr_CA&user_name=John%20Doe&user_email=john@slido.com&user_company=Slido" height="100%" width="100%" style="min-height: 560px;"></iframe>

 

We recommend using an incognito mode or a different browser when testing the query parameters with an embedded event. If you’ve already joined the same event or loaded the website with Participant mode before, your browser remembers the original settings. When using Incognito mode, don’t forget to enable third-party cookies



FAQ’s related to query parameters: 
 

 



 

Embedding Slido Present mode

 

If needed, you can also embed Slido Present mode. For that, you first need to get the Present mode link:

 

Example of the embed mode for Present mode:

<iframe src="https://wall.sli.do/event/eventhash" frameborder="0" height=“100%” width="100%" scrolling="yes"></iframe>

Hi we are using the ‘Pre-fill participants' data via query parameters’ described on page here 

https://community.sli.do/embed-slido-into-your-website-or-app-68/embed-your-slido-event-or-a-poll-into-a-website-408

But if we pass ‘lang=fr_CA’ like  example on page the text of the text remain all english on the UI, we will have french and english users is the lang parameter not actually supported?

Hey @resolve,

To change the language of your embed, you will first need to change the language of your Slido event in the event settings and this will then transfer onto the embedded content. 

If you would like to have multiple languages within one event, we will need to set this up for you from the backend. Please reach out to us at support@slido.com and my lovely colleagues will arrange this.

I hope this helps :) Let me know if you have any further questions.

Hi,

 

We’ve successfully embedded a Slido on a webpage, where we are directing our users to the Slido Agenda page, using an embed-link as shown below:

<iframe src="https://app.sli.do/event/Agendahash/agenda" height="100%" width="100%" style="min-height: 560px;"></iframe>

 

This approach directs us to the agenda of the first room, and not the full agenda. To view the full agenda, the user needs to manually select “all rooms” in the upper corner.

 

Is it possible to direct user directly onto the “all rooms Agenda” ?

 

Best Regards

Hi @Steffen Mølgaard Larsen

I’ve double checked with our Technical team and I’m afraid it’s not possible. :( 

Hopefully this won’t influence your event too much.

Happy to help if you would have any additional questions.
