Support » Plugin: Advanced iFrame » Placing a Framed Site into an iFrame

  • Resolved makphisto


    I have a weird problem. Before I go to paid support, I thought I’d ask here.

    I have a site that I’d like to include in an iFrame. The site is here. It is a framed site, in itself.

    I put that into my page using Advanced iFrame, and I get this:
    As you can see, it has one frame that just “spins” as it tries to load. If you click any of the links in the TOC, it opens them in an entirely new window, without the rest of the frames, so there’s no context of what you’re looking at or why.

    Any idea of what I need to do in settings to make it work, or if it’s even possible?

    The Javascript in the page you want to include does not work in an iframe. You get an error message then.
    And all the links have a target “_top” which causes that all links open outside an iframe.

    So what you want is not possible without changing the site you want to include.

    That’s that, then. Thank you for your reply!

    I have a slightly different problem. I too want to include a framed site into an iframe. It works om one ocasion, but on 2 other ocasions it doesn’t, at least not with firefox as the browser. The page in the iframe is loaded but the framed content in the remote page is the wrong content. With IE it does work. Any idea why this is?

    The page with iframe that works with both firefox and IE:

    Two pages that won’t work with firefox, but do work with IE:

    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    (@mdempfle) shows the same content in ff and ie for me. what is the expected result?
    Please be aware that iframe contents are often cached by the browser. So if you do any changes Make sure to do a full reload of the page (Shift F5)
