Support » Fixing WordPress » WordPress Blog in and inline frame. Good or bad?

  • Resolved RodThePlod


    Hello all,

    I’ve recently installed WordPress and set up my first blog which I hope to integrate in my web site.

    Currently, I’ve used a simple white theme and am displaying the blog through an Inline Frame on a PHP page in my web site.

    I wanted to find out if this is an OK way to integrate the blog or if I should look at doing it some other way. (I know inline frames are frowned at sometimes and am guessing that I might have to grips with CSS…).

    Any advice for me?

    BTW – blog can be seen here:

    Inline frames are certainly a matter of choice and there are a few times when are appropriate. I’m not usually a big fame of them however. Having said that, I think the way you’re doing it is kind of interesting. However, I think you may be better off with just another link at the top of your page that says “blog” – but that’s my personal preference.

    BTW, coming to grips with CSS isn’t such a bad thing. You may want to start sooner rather than later as it’s the way things are moving 😉



    Thanks for the reply! I’ve already been on a steep PHP/MySQL learning curve over the last few months while getting my site on line – so I guess adding CSS into the mix won’t hurt so much :o)

    My real concern with the inlne frames was to do with searching as I’d heard somewhere that frames are not search engine friendly. Obviously, I want the search engines to be able to traverse my blog without difficulty – although I *guess* that shouldn’t be a problem as the engines will still be able to search the WordPress folder/files in my web anyway – regardless of whether or not they’re being displayed through an inline frame. If you get what I mean :o) so maybe it’s not such a bad idea after all?!



    I just marked this thread ‘resolved’.

    I found that using an iframe in the way I did meant that it was impossible to bookmark posts or pages properly – which I’m guessing isn’t such a smart idea.

    I’ve now started looking at CSS and the modifying the header file (and others) to get the right look for my site.

    Thanks for the advice!
