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.)

Installed, but for some reason some options don't work.

Cloacking device from Romulans is missing?
J.L. Picard insist to be captain of my forum?

Lol, just a joke.
  • Word MEMBER in usergroup settings is not working, but it is OK for me, couse I set usergroups permissions with usergroup ID numbers.
  • Options to show links to pages in Quick links is not working. Maybe because of conflict with some other navbar mod (andreas mod?).

The Quick Links stopped working in the free version with VB 4.2.0.

The MEMBER should work, I will look into this- but yes the option to use usergroupids really makes MEMBER almost useless anyway. It was really a hold-over from an early version when I only had MEMBER, GUEST, or ALL.

Thanks for the feedback.

Just tried this out and it seems to work however, I've hit a wee snag. I'm attempting to load a static html page from a directory at the root of my site but outside the install directory for all the VB stuff; Absolute Links takes care of that so, so far so good. However, the html file I am attempting to load is infact a tabbed, Excel speadsheet saved as an HTML file. It seems to load fine and I can see all that I need to see and the tabs all work OK as well. Pretty good! But, if I scroll all the way down, past the tabs, to the bottom of the page I can also see a lot of the code from my original web page. Any ideas on how to fix that?

Great mod btw, absolutely fantastic and I can see a multitude of uses for it!

Problem solved: I turned off scroll bars on the Iframe and the issue went away. The html page was providing it's own scroll bars so those provide by Iframer were not needed.

Man this mod is super cool! I've been hankering after something like this for ages. It allows me to present static pages in more professional manner!

Sorry for the delay... if you still have it installed are you sire the page name of "gamingstore" doesn't have a single-quote in it?

You may need to edit the database directly if it does to fix it... table would be bop_iframer.

No worries on the delay.

I have not had the error since but I did check the page name and the database and there are NO quotes.

I have the gold running on one of my sites and lite running on the other with no issues other than the one above.
You should have no problems.

There is no problem to do that but if you want to be absolutely safe it is best to back up before you make the change.

In 4.2.0 Free and Gold version users benefit from being able to use the more powerful built in Navigation Manager to create links to IFRAME pages. Using it on 4.2.0 should not be considered "less" compatible. It does require you to make the tab yourself (if you don't want to use quick links in Gold) but it gives you so many more options it is often the better choice.
