Version 1.3.1

Fully compatible with VB 3.8 & 4.x versions.

This is a free version of this mod. The Gold Version is available at:
IFRAMEr Gold by BOP5 at Qapla.com

The FREE version is just like the GOLD version except limited to 3 Admin Created IFRAMEs. The GOLD version allows for unlimited IFRAME pages.

about:

The IFRAME tag is a powerful tag that lets you embed any webpage in any other webpage. It is used all over in places you'd never expect like "Like Buttons" and even in vBulletin's Human Verify templates.

This mod is designed to provide the admin with one large IFRAME on a vBulletin powered page that the admin can easily assign and setup via the Admin CP.

This will allow admins to provide a familiar and local interface for external content.

PLEASE BE AWARE NOT ALL WEBSITES "ALLOW" YOU TO FRAME THEM. Please read the site's "Terms of Service" before you place their content into an IFRAME on your page. Some sites specifically forbid this, though it is mostly through the "honor system." Very few use JavaScript code that can detect them being framed and "break out" of them automatically. Still, please do your due diligence before framing anyone else's content. There a number of sites you are allowed to frame such as the photo editor in the demo links (a popular choice), usually any scientific/government sites like weather maps, forecasts, or NASA sites. Wikimedia/Wikipedia allow for framing as well.

This mod also allows you to choose if you want to link to each or any of the IFRAME pages via the "Quick Links" drop-down forum menu. However, this mod is intended to create the FRAME pages- linking to them in a better way is up to you. May I suggest a (Free) Qapla.com ExQlusive mod : Navbar Buttons Builder by BOP5 - For easy inclusion of IFRAME links in the navbar or drop-down lists.

You must give each IFRAMEr page a title, a navbits title, and an optional extended description. Each of these options may be entered directly into the IFRAMEr manager OR can instead be created as phrases to allow translation to multiple languages for multi-language sites. In the latter case you specify the "use phrases" and enter the phrase name in the settings box instead. A convenient link is included to the Phrase Manager pre-loaded to show your custom IFRAMEr phrases (if any.)

Finally the mod also allows you to choose which usergroups can see each IFRAME link and page. By default all usergroups can see each IFRAME page, but you can restrict it to specific groups or member's only (preventing guest access.)

Please Mark as Installed if you use this.

I don't think so.

What I heard was that using YouTube as an IFRAME player wasn't as good for SEO as using the <embed / object> code because the IFRAME code has less keywords in it (none in fact) whereas the <embed> code does,

I don't see how an IFRAME can be bad for SEO, just not AS GOOD as other alternatives if available. IFRAMEs are used all the time on pages that people never know.

Updated to Version 1.1

Added option to use "Absolute" URLs for Links in Quick Links. These are only necessary if your blogs or CMS (or 3rd party CMS) is in a different directory than your main forums. Using Absolute URLs will prevent file-not-found errors when clicking on the links from outside the forum directory.

Minor update to 1.3.1- A fix was added in case you accidentally add HTML into the URL field- previously the HTML entered would likely corrupt the IFRAMEr Manger page display in admin cp.

The only file actually changed is the bop5_iframer.php file in the /admincp/ directory. No need to re-install if you don't want to.

Is it listed in product manager? Is there an IFRAMEr group in Admin CP?

So, this is different from Iframe BBcode ? . It looks cool, but is there a way to integrate this into a bbcode, so i can post anywhere I want ?

This is different from a BBCode because BBCodes can only be used in posts. this is its own page,

The bigger problem with a BBCode is it is very dangerous (security wise) to give your users access to put arbitrary URLs inside an IFRAME- it defeats the entire purpose of not allowing users to use HTML code in posts.

An IFRAME bbcode is simple enough- just a very bad idea. If you still want it:

Replacement Code in BBCode Manager:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Then you would just use it like [IFRAME]http://www.vbulletin.org[/IFRAME].

Very nice, thank you. Using it to show web cams that will not allow embedding in a post. May buy the full version.

There is no difference in functionality between the paid and free version, the free version just has a limit on the number of IFRAMEs allowed.

The web cam site was an example, after you take a snap shot they show a box that has code you can copy to paste into a forum, it does not automatically embed in a post, you need to paste the code in.

No, but it is not necessary with VB5. VB5 has the "Static HTML" module on site builder so you can easily create your own IFRAME pages on VB5 without any mods.
