    cool, i get the site within a site deal. But, whenever I click on a link on the iframe site it navigates away from my home site. Any way to fix that?

      James, there is a way to fix that. You have to have control though of the site that is iFramed though. You need to change your links to have the _parent or _top attribute in the link. If you are using iWeb for the site that’s iFramed, then make your links open in a new window in the inspector. Then open up the HTML in an editor, find the link and change the _blank to _parent. That will do the trick for you.

        Seems I’ve only been bombarding you about this, but I just saw this post in the videos section. The page inside the iframe I want to open in the main page is made in iWeb as well. However, the links are made by iWeb. In my website, I want to open the blog posts inside the iframe (by clicking on the title or the “read more…” link) into the main page. Is there a way to do this? Also, when you say edit the HTML, does this mean I will have to edit whenever i publish?

        If it cannot be done, I would then just want to make the iFrame clickable and have it always load the main blog page (no matter where in the iframe it is clicked). Any other workarounds for this?

        Hey, very nice site.

        I want to use a header menu, and link it on all the other pages of my site, is there a way to do that, with iFrame or anithing else?

        I also want to know if it is able to use iWeb, use the iWeb FTP and in another situation make HTML updates on the pages with another FTP and another editor, like even textedit and after that, if iWeb would update his files with the new edited ones?

        Best regards, Leo.

    How do I add an iframe that is transparent? I am re-designing this site for a buddy and would like to float text in an iframe over a background image…

    By the way – your site rocks!

    We are trying to display weekly race results that are posted on a different site. The results are found by selecting various criteria from their drop downs / search criteria.

    How do I get an html snippet to run this query for us and display the results on our page? Is this possible?

  5. Wesley says:

    I was wondering if anyone knew how I could link two iFrames together in iweb. for example. there is a link on a page in one iFrame and I would like that link to open inside of the other iFrame. I know that this can be done but don’t know how to embed it in to iweb. here is a page that I have come across demonstrating this.


    Thanks, Wez

      Hi Wesley,

      I try to do exactly what you’ve said here. Did you get it ? Do you know how can I do it on Iweb ?

    I want to change the page the frame is assigned to when a button is clicked. This is similar to the iwebunlimited home page. When 1, 2, or 3 is clicked different text and pictures are displayed. I think is done by using a iframe.

    Hello! Thanks for the tips, I use them a lot!
    I was trying to use the iframe for a site, and the page that is in the iframe has thumbnails of images that do fancy zoom, and when I click them they zoom inside the iframe, so they’re very small… is there a way to make them zoom larger than the iframe?

  12. Ray says:

    Is there a way to have the desired URL pop up in a fancybox iframe and be able to customize that?

    I have tried this one, but found it a bit tricky to get going in iWeb:

    http://fancybox.net/home (Iframe (75% width and height)
