Hey I have instructions below:

  1. Open Thimble and create a new project
  2. Open that page and open Firebug or Web Developer tools and right click on the article portion of the page
  3. Copy the content between the tags below:
    <article id="edit-document">
    <h1>Create a New Knowledge Base Article</h1>
          <div id="document-form">
  4. delete the and paste the media.

I got the error message that the media is taking too long to load.

SO instead, I tried to use Thimble: Here is the project I created with all the links to the css styling, feel free to remix this as desired. In regards to functionality you may need some help, feel free to post back with questions. The thimble with the create article: https://guigs.makes.org/thimble/how-to-page

We should support meme maker, it is awesome: https://guigs.makes.org/thimble/meme-maker

Thank you for your help :) I am up and running in Thimble, fun fun! Do you know if it is possible to have the HTML content in Popcorn be interactive like a presentation slide deck where the user clicks through it? I tried a Google Drive presentation and got the same error message media is taking too long to load. Any suggestion is greatly appreciated.

HI binab,

I do not think that popcorn maker can a google presentation, but I would encourage to file a bug in webmaker to contribute to the development.

Bugzilla for Web Maker: http://blog.webmaker.org/bugzilla https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/popcorn-maker

I was playing around with a project and it looks like you can add a skip, then a media layer, then a forever pause that automatically pauses until the viewer hits play.

Another thing I tried was

  1. Add an event and choose a popup or element
  2. Add an HTML 5 element to is and add link to a javascript file that calls the video controls.
  3. The <button></button> tag works, and I am sure you can add some style to it.

I hope this idea springs you in the right direction. Cheers!
