Support » Plugin: Search in Place » Search iframe content on current page

  • Resolved martyparker9745


    Hi, Search in Place Team,

    Really like the ability to search only on current page. It is essential for our application where the users will be searching in a transcript of the recording that is playing on that page.

    However, our current approach is to provide the transcript via iframe. Search in Place does not seem to “see” the content from the iframe even though the content is visible to the user on the page.

    Is there any adjustment we can make to cause the content in the iframe to be searchable?

    The provided link shows the iframe content below the audio player and the search box.

    The HTML for this is:

    [search-in-place-form in_current_page=”1″]
    <iframe frameborder=”0″ width=”100%” height=”900″ src=”; scrolling=”yes” marginwidth=”0″ marginheight=”0″ allowfullscreen=””></iframe>

    Thank you for your help!

    Hello @martyparker9745

    There is not a problem of adjustment. The page and iframe contents are in different contexts (please, read the standard). They are similar to different pages. You cannot access the content of the iframe tags from the page’s code.

    Best regards.

    Dear codepeople,

    Thank you very much for your response. I had read all of the information on the plugin page before writing, so must not have understood where that standard was stated.

    OK, now understand that the iframe page is a different page, not on the current page.

    Will rethink our design for this page, and perhaps can still use the Search in Place plugin.

    Best regards,
