Advanced Iframe ProiframeDonateGitHub

WordPress plugin: embed iframe into content.

Iframes are needed to embed video from youtube or to embed Google Map or just to embed content from external page.
WordPress removes iframe when you switch from "HTML" to "Visual" tab because of the security reasons.
So you can embed iframe code using this shortcode [iframe width="100%" height="480" src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/3261363"].

You also can use this shortcode to embed content via simple link: [embed_]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3PDXmYoF5U[/embed] (without underscore '_')

shortcode is a WordPress core feature and based on oEmbed.

Parameters:

  • src - source of the iframe [iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/819138"] (by default src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/819138");
  • width - width in pixels or in percents [iframe width="100%" src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/819138"] or [iframe width="640" src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/819138"] (by default width="100%");
  • height - height in pixels [iframe height="480" src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/819138"] (by default height="480");

  1. We use the iframe plugin to place our calendar on our website, however, now the page is simply showing a white screen after we did an update. Can you assist, please?

    1. Hi Laura,
      Seems like your iframe shortcode parameters got messed up by the editor.
      Please try to retype the shortcode in your editor, especially quotes.

  2. Hi there! I manage a multisite network on a restricted network. I get lots of questions about use of iframes, but I typically don't allow it because of security concerns.

    I'm curious how difficult it would be to integrate/create a safe/whitelist of domains that are allowed that could work with your iframe plugin. Happy to tweak this from functions.php (if ideas?), but would rather it be at a plugin level.

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Dave,
      I think that is not possible to do via functions.php because Iframe plugin does not have any custom hooks to use so far.
