Joomla Terms of User Wrapper

Hi Experts,

I'd like to wrap a lengthy terms and conditions document in a joomla article page.  It would be nice if it was the typical scoll box that was embedded in the parent page.  Any ideas about how I'd do this?

Can you elaborate on where you want this on your site.

If you want it showing on all pages, you could add it to the footer for example, then style the footer so it has got a height and scrollbars?

Hi snowball77,

Just on a single page somewhere in the site I want to have the terms of use (terms and conditions or whatever)... it's like 5 pages of boring text.  I'd like it to be contained in a single text area nested in the page with vertical scroll bars instead of one super long article page.   It's really common and on most sites but I don't know what to call it or how to describe it very well.

Maybe using an Iframe to show the text would give me the effect I am looking for but I am wondering if there is a better or more common way of doing it.

hmm, ok you could use a wrapper to wrap your terms and conditions from a webpage, or you could try an extension like this one here??

Using the wrapper you could create a menu item as a wrapper and then specify the height and width of the wrapper.  You could then call a plain html webpage with your terms and conditions.  Simply by creating a html page and uploading it to your server and loading it into your wrapper.

Alternatively you could try some extensions like this
