the following web page contains an iframe which should display a calendar within the content area of the page.
On all desktop browsers it works fine (as evidenced by browsershots), and iPad works fine.
Android Chrome displays a 404 not found, seemingly having removed the domain name.

i've tried adding a filename at the end of the URL   "index.php" (anything after "calendar" is ignored by the calendar server)
thinking that chrome mobile might need a file name, but that did no good.

the iframe is
<iframe  frameborder="0" src="http://www.vrbo.com/233062/calendar/index.php" height="1100" width="900"> </iframe>

and the page is:
http://oceansedgemaine.com/availability.php

any suggestions on how to trick android chrome into displaying the iframe?

thanks!

The settings in Android Chrome may vary, but on my Android Phone I merely unchecked Mobile View in Settings and then the calendar displayed in the iframe.

The 404 error occurs because www.vrbo.com is detecting the mobile browser and therefore redirects the mobile browser to a resource that does not exist: mobile.vrbo.com/233062/calendar, instead of http://www.vrbo.com/233062/calendar/


Can you put the same calendar in mobile.vrbo.com/233062  ?
