Support » Installing WordPress » Can I Install WordPress In Frames?

  • Hello,

    Is it possible to install wordpress within IFrames?
    I’d like to get it installed into here:

    <frameset cols=”17%,*” framespacing=”0″ border=”0″ frameborder=”no”>
    <frame name=”bodyleft” src=”bodyleft.html”>
    <frameset cols=”53%,*”>
    <frameset rows=”21%,*”>
    <frame name=”bodytop” src=”bodytop.html” frameborder=”no”>
    <frameset rows=”50%,*”>
    <frame name=”bodycenter” src=”bodycenter.html” frameborder=”no”>
    <frame name=”bodybottom” src=”bodybottom.html” frameborder=”no”>
    </frameset>
    </frameset>
    <frame name=”bodyright” src=”bodyright.html” frameborder=”no”>
    </frameset>
    <noframes>

  • Firstly, I can’t respond to this without first suggesting a read of http://www.html-faq.com/htmlframes/?framesareevil, and then pointing out that frames are deprecated in strict XHTML.

    But in saying that you can install WordPress inside them. When following the installation (http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress) install WordPress into a subdirectory (will make your life a bit easier in this case); then in your HTML from above:

    Replace the “body*.html” from the frame you want WordPress to appear in with a link to the subdirectory or subdirectory/index.php

    Why would you want to do that?

    thank you both for your replies.

    i guess because i like to tinker with things. i was hoping to construct an online version of our magazine. and i only needed a cms in a certain part of the index page.

    thanks for the link. ill read it now. i wound up installing wordpress outside of any frame and discovered that individual pages can be made for our advertisers and guest writers. this actually accomplishes what we need.

    WordPress rocks!

    Instead of frames, you can just use PHP includes to import the part you need.
