    Hello!

    I have the phpBB-forum installed on a subdomain. I have the iFrame set up for my WordPress and I have turned on redirection on all URLs.

    Will Google be able to crawl the forum within the iFrame?

    Sorry for the answer delay, it was holidays time!

    The answer is: Yes
    because crawlers points to real phpBB URLs.
    Javascript code do the trick, but spiders just see real phpBB urls both on WP last posts widgets if you use, or if they try to load via direct phpBB url.

    The overall_header.html javascript code do the trick: if it is a spider, it isn’t redirected to iframe (because the code do not output, butit was not a big problem assuming that crawlers do not follow javascript code, if not just only to perform certain tasks, and not to indicize).

    In the other side, so WordPress widgets, that’s in true was the unique real problem about this, links presents the real url, and only onmouseover (via javascript, so if an user point his mouse into the link on widget) the url will switch to point to iframe.

    1.9.9 is coming soon, Best regards!
