    I have discovered something, much to my confusion and frustration.
    some iframes don't seem to like to work at all in wordpress.

    but some do.

    youtube/vimeo embeds work fine.

    most iframes seem to work fine, i've used them to embed entire pages from other sites like amazon.

    but when i try to embed banners or specific product widgets from amazon, they don't work at all. I get nothing but empty space.

    but when i put those same banners and widgets in a static html page for testing purposes, they work perfectly fine.

    anyone have an idea why they will not work in wordpress?

    If they include JavaScript then they will probably break, can you link to a specific example of a broken iFrame & tell us the iFrame code you used?

    i figured it out. idk why it never occurred to me.

    its a browser issue.
    for some reason the aforementioned iframes don't display in chrome (but only chrome for mac apparently).

    which is highly unfortunate as i am forced to work on a mac and much prefer to use chrome but a code monkey's gotta do what a code monkey's gotta do.
