Facebook Iframe Link Fixer


Makes it possible for a WordPress page viewed in a Facebook iFrame to link to other Facebook content, such as the Facebook wall or a photo album. (Currently, Facebook disables an iFrame app’s link to other Facebook content as Facebook will not display itself within its own iFrame.) This overrides that by adding a target property to all links to Facebook content.

  • Adds a JavaScript to the header of your page
  • Tests whether the page is being viewed in an iframe
  • If so, adds a “_top” target property to each link containing a Facebook URL that is not set to open in a new window
  • Causes those links to work, loading your Facebook wall or other Facebook content in the same window when clicked


Unzip the compressed files. Move the folder titled facebook-iframe-link-fixer into your plugins folder. Activate in your WordPress administration plugins panel.

You donít need to add any template tags or additional code.
