PHP iFrame to another server

Hello -
I am new to php and iFrame.  I have a php form that needs to be seen on a website that's server is controlled by our IT department.  I need my form to no appear on the main page, have a link on the navigation bar and show up on a separate target.  I'm not sure where to put the code to make this work.

Here's a portion of my code:
<FORM NAME="horizonsOnApp" ACTION="online_thank_you.php" METHOD="POST" onsubmit="return fieldcheck()">
          <table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="1" name="Form Table" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
            <tr bgcolor="#0099CC">
The site it needs to iFrame to is http://ebiz.sbc.com/horizons/.  CAN ANYONE HELP?

Hi, I may not fully understand your question but from what I have read so far, you would like to put an iframe into your page, and get the form on the main part of the page, to submit to the iframe?  if this is correct, try the following:

<IFRAME SRC="http://ebiz.sbc.com/horizons/" WIDTH=100 HEIGHT=100 frameborder="0" style="border-width:0px" scrolling="no" id="news" name="horizons"></IFRAME>

In your form, change the form tag to the following:

<FORM NAME="horizonsOnApp" ACTION="online_thank_you.php" METHOD="POST" onsubmit="return fieldcheck()" target="horizons">

Basically what I have done here is created an iframe containing a page, in this instance the link you provided and called it horizons.  In the form, I have told the form to use the iframe as the target of the form, so the form will kind of post itself to the iframe, and not refresh the page.  

Hope this helps.

Oh, and if you need to link items from the main page into the iframe, simply give each link a target="horizons", such as the following:

<a href="mypagename.php" target="horizons">text for link here</a>

Thanks for the help!

I actually need it to do the reverse.  I need to add the Horizons php form to the http://ebiz.sbc.com/horizons/ website, but i do not have access to the http://ebiz.sbc.com/horizons/ coding.  Can that be done?

Hi, if you don't have access to the external websites code, I'm afraid there's no way of changing it's links or targets to different iframes, or even pages for that matter.  Their code I would assume has been specifically coded for their website, and not for external references.

Hope this helps.
