Hipchat sidebar launching new browser window issue

Has anyone had success posting to sites from sidebar apps? I have an app that I'm working on that the site I am posting to does not allow posting from an iframe which is what the sidebar webpanel is. Am I out of luck here? Any help would be appreciated.

There is no inherent limitation on POSTing data from the iframe that is used in the sidebar display. If it's opening a new browser, that sounds like whatever you're clicking on might be specifically requesting a new window (e.g. a link with target="_blank").

If you're following one of the tutorials on the site (e.g. it should help you setup an addon that allows posting from the sidebar. The instructions could hopefully help with whatever framework you're using with your custom addon as well.


Thanks @Chris Rivers. I found it was a limitation of the site I was posting to with not allowing posting from an iframe. but I was able to get around it. I do appreciate the help!
