About:

The IFRAME tag is a powerful tag that lets you embed any webpage in any other webpage. It is used all over in places you'd never expect like "Like Buttons" and even in vBulletin's Human Verify templates.

This mod is designed to provide the admin with one large IFRAME on a vBulletin powered page that the admin can easily assign and setup via the Admin CP.

This will allow admins to provide a familiar and local interface for external content.

PLEASE BE AWARE NOT ALL WEBSITES "ALLOW" YOU TO FRAME THEM. Please read the site's "Terms of Service" before you place their content into an IFRAME on your page. Some sites specifically forbid this, though it is mostly through the "honor system." Very few use JavaScript code that can detect them being framed and "break out" of them automatically. Still, please do your due diligence before framing anyone else's content. There a number of sites you are allowed to frame such as the photo editor in the demo links (a popular choice), usually any scientific/government sites like weather maps, forecasts, or NASA sites. Wikimedia/Wikipedia allow for framing as well.

This mod also allows you to choose if you want to link to each or any of the IFRAME pages via the "Quick Links" drop-down forum menu. However, this mod is intended to create the FRAME pages- linking to them in a better way is up to you. May I suggest a (Free) Qapla.com ExQlusive mod : Navbar Buttons Builder by BOP5 - For easy inclusion of IFRAME links in the navbar or drop-down lists.

You must give each IFRAMEr page a title, a navbits title, and an optional extended description. Each of these options may be entered directly into the IFRAMEr manager OR can instead be created as phrases to allow translation to multiple languages for multi-language sites. In the latter case you specify the "use phrases" and enter the phrase name in the settings box instead. A convenient link is included to the Phrase Manager pre-loaded to show your custom IFRAMEr phrases (if any.)

Finally the mod also allows you to choose which usergroups can see each IFRAME link and page. By default all usergroups can see each IFRAME page, but you can restrict it to specific groups or member's only (preventing guest access.)

Installed with thanks ...

How do you handle web sites that use a separate panel on the left side to navigate? Clicking on a link in those nav panels seems to take the site out of the iFrame mod and into a very direct mode.

Thanks ..

Regards,
Doug

BadgerDog,

I'm afraid there is nothing to do for those sites- they were never designed to be in FRAMEs and you can't do anything to force it.

Would it be possible to have the iframe/links appear in only select forums? This way a forum about product X could show links for only that item, while the forum for product Y would only see their links?

How safe is this mod? Typically iFrames are very dangerous to use correct?

Well anything pretty much is possible but I don't intend to add that feature- the quick links were an afterthought - just something so people could have some links out of the box. My intent was for users to manage links themselves using either a proper link manager or their own template edits- in either of those cases control over specific forums would/should be easy.

The mod is as safe as the IFRAMEs you link to. Do not link to untrusted sources and there shouldn't be a problem.

The mod does have an option to view the IFRAMEs in security mode but that is something only Internet Explorer supports so it is of little practical value.

Updated to Version 1.1

Added option to use "Absolute" URLs for Links in Quick Links. These are only necessary if your blogs or CMS (or 3rd party CMS) is in a different directory than your main forums. Using Absolute URLs will prevent file-not-found errors when clicking on the links from outside the forum directory.

Thank you Joe ...

Can you send me via PM your PayPal address for the PRO mod?

I thought I had it from sending you a PayPal for a different mod, but I can't seem to find it now ...

Regards,
Doug

Would you be willing to add the ability to add a new drop down menu next to "Quick Links" say "External Links" where these would appear?
