Site within a site (2 posts)

    I don't know if this is possible or if there is a plugin that could do this.

    I have a site with various links to pages. Two of the links need to link to external websites and at the moment they open in a new window.
    This is fine but I would rather not divert people away to external sites.
    Is it possible to display these external websites within a page on my site, so that the external website is fully functional but my website is always present within the viewed page.
    I have tried searching this but I don't know the correct term to describe this function so have not had much luck.

    Many thanks

    This is possible, but not recommended, because it annoys visitors. Even forcing links to open in a new tab/window is frowned upon.

    Visitors nowadays are fairly web-savvy. If they want to go back to your site, they know how to use the back button, and if they don't, you really can't stop them from leaving. Focus on making a site that people will want to come back to.
