Support » Plugin: Exit Notifier » Notifier doesn’t work with widgets/iframes?

    Plugin works great, unless attempting to leave the site via the TradingView iframe or the Facebook widget. In those cases, a new tab simply opens with no warning that the user is leaving the website. Can that be adjusted?

    Thanks in advance.

    Works fine from most widgets, but you nailed it with the iframe situation. Maybe the facebook widget you’re using uses an iframe to display?

    From a technical standpoint, an iframe is a hole in your website that you are seeing another website through. Exit Notifier, or any other plugin on your site, can’t affect the content of another site on another server, so no, unfortunately, that’s not even a possibility. In fact, there is much security technology preventing exactly that, or you could iframe a bank site and steal information as people put it in through your iframe. When a user interacts with an iframe, it’s like they are not even on your site.

    Sorry I can’t help there, and I hope that explains why!

    Yep, that’s just as I suspected. I’m mostly doing my due diligence on my client’s behalf. Before I recommend to them that they remove the widgets if security will remain an issue, I just wanted to make 100% sure I didn’t have any other recourse. Thanks for the prompt reply, it’s much appreciated!
