Advanced iFrame Pro Include content the way YOU like in an iframe that can hide and modify elements and forward parameters. You can also embed content directly or show a part of an iframe.
New since 6.3 Standalone version included: Use the plugin also without WordPress!
Please note: Code canyon changes in April the way authors can get their money. So I have to pay 12 (!) times more to transfer money to my account starting April 2018. Please get your license of Advanced iFrame Pro before that to save some money as the price needs to be adopted there as well.
Check the pro demo for working examples of most of the main features. The examples are a good start for any feature you want to use.
Resize the iframe to the content height or width
On the same domain or if you are able to use the external workaround you can resize the iframe to the iframe height. Also dynamic size changes in the iframe are detected and even auto height of hidden elements is supported.
Show only specifiy areas of the iframe
Even if you are NOT on the same domain and you are NOT able to modify the external page you can show a part of the remote iframe. With the included area selector you can simply select the area you want to show with your mouse. Also you can hide certain areas of the other page. For perfect integration zoom is also supported!
Zoom iframe content
You can zoom the content of an iframe with a fixed ratio and also by auto zoom which does calculate the factor depending on the browser size. Especially on non responsive pages this can be the only solution for mobile devices.
Modify css styles
You can dynamically change the css of the parent and depending on your setup even of the iframe page too. So you can hide elements like header and footers or overwrite static sizes to make a page more responsive.
Lazy load is the perfect feature to enhance the loading time of your page. So first your main page is loaded and afterwards the iframe. You can also load the iframe when it is visible only or load the iframe with a click on a button.
Loading iframes often takes additional time. So now you can show your users a loading icon until the iframe is fully loaded.
Many websites look different on different devices. With the included browser detectionyou are able to show different iframes or different parts of an iframe depending on the detected device.
Change link targets and show iframes as layer with header/footer
You can dynamically change the link targets of the parent and depending on your setup even of the iframe page too. This also enables the feature that links kann be directly opened in an extra layer in an iframe. So users don’t leave your webpage even when they select external links! A custom header/footer can also be included to the layer.
Scrolling on ipad and iphone
By default not all IOS versions do support scrolling inside an iframe. An IOS workaround combined with the browser detection is done in the plugin as the IOS workaround does not work on other systems!
Advanced url parameter handling
Many options to parse parameters are supported. You can forward parameters from the parent and you have many placeholders like the current WordPress username. You can even add the iframe url as parameter to the parent url to be able to bookmark the current selected page.
Use iframes in the widget areas
A widget is included to add iframes or even any shortcode in your widget areas.
Provide parts of your website to other domains
This feature does enable you to offer parts of your website by only 2 lines of code (js + iframe). See the “content filter” and the “Add ai_external.js local” solution.
Check your iframes
The iframe checker is now included internally and can also check once every day all of your iframes!
Standalone version included!
You can use this plugin not only in WordPress but any php page where you can insert a few lines of code!
To include a webpage to your page please check the following things first:

Check the feature comparison chart which features are available in detail for your setup. Please do this before you buy! http://www.tinywebgallery.com/blog/advanced-iframe/advanced-iframe-comparison-chart
To enter a simple iframe please go to the administration and follow the instructions on the basic settings tab. There you can either use a basic shortcode and set the settings in the administration or overwrite the settings directly in the shortcode. Please also read the FAQ and look at the free and pro examples.
Advanced users that have their own server might also setup a reverse proxy if the iframe page is on a different domain and cannot use the external workaround. See this blog for details.
If you mix http and https read this blog. Parent https and iframe http does not work on all mayor browsers!
Simply download the zip from codecanyon and overwrite all files from your previous installation with ftp or unistall the plugin (free or pro) and install the new version again. All settings are stored in the database so you don’t loose anything. Also use this way if you have used the personal version you can get on wordpress.org. If you have some radio elements empty after the update simply select the one you like and save again.
Please save the advanced iframe settings once to update the generated ai_external.js to the latest version! On production systems you should add a version counter to the ai_external.js to avoid caching if you use the external workaround e.g.: …/ai_external.js?version=6
Go to Settings -> Advanced iFrame Pro
Please go to the administration for all possible short code attributes. If you only use one iframe please use the settings in the administration because there each parameter is explained in detail and also the defaults are set there.
