Bug Description

The Google Apps code is broken as Google issued new URLs. Unfortunately, they are not yet all visible to everyone. I can still see the Google Docs URL, but Ulrike Montgomery from Germany already has the new Drive one.

Here is one for a document:

We will need the URLs and the iframe embed code for the following:

- Google Docs
- Google Spreadsheet
- Google Presentation
- Google Form (not for the Google Apps part, but good to know nevertheless)
- Google Books
- Google Calendar (just to be sure that nothing changed there as that shouldn't be Drive)

and Google Drawing

To clarify: The Google Apps block allows users to take the URL that get from Google Docs' "share" button, paste that into a text field, and our code transforms it into the correct iframe embed code. This relies on regular expressions that are able to extract the Google Doc ID from the share URL.

Google has begun changing the generated "share" URLs to use the domain name "" instead of "". This means that the regular expressions we use to extract the Google Doc ID, no longer match the provided URL, and that's why the block doesn't work.

To thoroughly test this, we will need the assistance of someone who has an account that is generating the new "" addresses. If you are such a person, please speak up here and let us know! :)
