problem resizing iFrame within WP (Kubrick Theme) (12 posts)

    Hello,

    when I use
    <iframe src="http://www.somesite.com/blah"

    scrolling="no"
    marginwidth="0"
    marginheight="0"
    frameborder="0"></iframe>

    on a Page in WP, the box for the iframe is tiny, and even if I set the dimensions of the iframe, these seem to be ignored!

    Any ideas on how to enlarge the size of the iframe?

    THanks

    Either adding width and height attributes to the iframe tag, or as properties through your css, should do it. Are you saying this doesn't work?

    Try this:
    <iframe id="fillin" name="something" src="http://yourname.com/" width="420px" height="400px" scrolling="Default" ></iframe>

    If you cannot contain it, Try something like this:

    <div id="region">

    <iframe id="fillin" name="something" src="http://yourname.com/" width="420px" height="400px" scrolling="Default" ></iframe>

    </div>

    put this in your css an reaarange to your liking.
    #region {
    float: left;
    padding : 2px;
    border : 1px solid #cccccc;
    width : 450px;
    font-size : 90%;
    position : relative;
    height : auto;
    background-color : #ffffff;
    left: 10px;
    top: 10px;
    }

    My web server is down at the moment so I cannot test it for you.

    Hi Darcie,

    Thanks for your reply.

    If you want to look at my site http://graeme.hopto.org you will see my problem. I want to resive the news feeds which are too small.

    The problem I have is they are generated by the postie plugin through email and I cant find the relevant file in which to put the code or edit the size.

    Can you help ???

    Thanks

    My website is http://graeme.hopto.org and if you click on news alerts on the right column you will see what I mean about the small frames i want to make bigger.

    Thanks for your help.

    You site seems to be down at the momento. But I would first suggest you contact the designer. It's quite a fanatastic little program, but I cannot use it at the moment. I am not set-up with upload and all that jazz.

    Nevertheless, in postie-functions.php I think that is the where your issue lies. I am sure the designer can tell you where it needs to be changed.

    I will still work on getting it configured on my end. Exactly what is Posties used for?

    Hi Darcie,

    I am still playing about with it but I have used it to send pics and .3gp movies from my mobile to an email address I set up. Postie checks this email address regularly ( through cron) and downloads these and posts them on your blog. I also am using it for some news feeds and automating them onto the blog. Great little program.

    Site is back up now anyway.

    try inside posties-function.php

    lines 461 & 462: ' width="128" '.'height="112" '.

    It's all I could find.

    Hi Darcy,

    Yeah no luck mate. I tried all those width, height settings in fuctions-posti with no luck.

    Thanks anyway. It has really got me stumped. If anyone out there has any idea how to do this please tell me :-)

    Cheers
