Webview is blank

  • Issue of the topic: Webview used in example displays blank page.
    • Sitemap configuration related to the issue

      Frame label=“Web Test” {
      Webview url=“http://www.openhab.org” height=5

Using the tutorial provided example for webview, I get a a blank box. Running another test, with a sitemaps configuration of:

Frame label=“Web Test” {
Webview url=“” height=5

Loads a blank box at first, but after waiting for a minute it will load page a typical connection timeout page.

Why does the first test not work?

I don’t know if the webview supports redirected urls.
But typing http://www.openhab.org into your browser redirects automatically to https://www.openhab.org

So try https instead of http

Yep, by changing http to https, it now loads in the webview. Thanks!

Now I am having a similar problem. I can load “https://www.openhab.org”, but I can’t link to “https://www.google.com” Why would that be?
