Why does jmol work when viewing public worksheets on some notebook servers (such as at Drake or Mississippi College), but not, for example, in this worksheet at

If I want users to be able to interact with jmol renders, do I have to set up my own notebook server?

The difference is that is running the new flask notebook, but Drake and Misissippi are running the current version of the notebook that comes with Sage 4.7.1. Can you check if the most recent version of the flask notebook (at has this problem?

thanks for looking into this; the problem is still there: should show a 3d graph, and then a 2d contour plot -- currently only the contour plot is shown publicly.

Rado might know why; there is a small ritual dance one has to perform every time a flack notebook is installed to enable jmol there... I'll tell him.
