Inserting Iframes in Active Rain Posts

By
Real Estate Technology

What's an Iframe?

Iframe is a HTML tag that stands for inline frame.
In very simple terms, it's a way to insert a web page inside another.

You can adjust the way the iframe is displayed by entering a width and height via CSS (Cascade Style Sheets).

Note: AR adds a width of 300 pixels and a height of 150 pixels by default, but the CSS takes precedence over it.

 

Important Note:

Some websites may not allow to be added to an iframe.

 

How To Add An Iframe To An Active Rain Post

You can copy the code in Example 1 as a starting point - simply change the src URL to yours.

 

You have to enter the HTML code for the iframe in the post's HTML code - click <> in the editor tools area:

 


Then, enter it right after a closing "p" tag where you want it to display:

 

 

Example 1 (works)

Code:

Actual iframe:

 

Example 2 (does not work)

This iframe does not work because the Active Rain website is secure (https) and the web page being inserted via an iframe is not (http).

Only websites that are secure will work.

Code:

close

Dario, thanks for sharing this information. I bookmarked it. I hope to be able to use it when needed - I had often wondered how to insert iframes.

Steffy Hristova,

Hope it helps. It's a bit tricky because AR strips and changes some stuff automatically.

Sally K. & David L. Hanson ,

Hmmm, do you mean the realtor.com iframe is showing you New Berlin, WI properties?
If so, realtor.com is probably getting your IP address to serve you local content.

The framing thing can be tricky but once you get it, it’s like anything else and you start rolling with it, I find.
