Hi guys,

I would like to IFRAME a url but it returns: "this content cannot be displayed in a frame", or if I use Frame, the page will show in full.

someone knows if possible?

Thank you!

Is it something like this or did I misunderstand you?

<!doctype html public "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"><html>
<head>
<title>URL in Iframe</title>
</head>
<body>
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" border="0" bgcolor="#000066">
<tr>
	<td valign="top" width="10%" height=1000 bgcolor="#000066">
	 I am going to put url in iframe	
	</div>
	</td>
	<td valign="top" width="80%">
		<IFRAME SRC="yourURL.html" Name="iframename" style="width: 100%; height: 100%"></IFRAME>
	</td>
</tr>
</table>
</BODY>
</HTML>

thank you for the reply.

sammy, I tried it, but this website/url I am using IFrame on part will just open my webpage but once loading the Iframe, it will refresh to their website/url.

example, if I save your code above as http://mydomain.com/iframe.htm, then use url "http://otherdomain.com/iframe.htm" as "url.htm",  when I load my page, it will automatucally refresh and will jump to: "http://otherdomain.com/iframe.htm".

That would happen if you tried to put some of my pages in your iframe because I have code to force my page to be the main page.  Are you trying to load a Google or Youtube page?  They generally don't allow their pages to be displayed in a frame or iframe.

Not if they have it blocked.  A lot of sites do block displaying in a frame.  They don't want you using their content.
