We want to integrate another website into our Ning site. The tabs allow you to direct someone to the other site, but we'd like to display the other site within a textbox and integrate it into our Ning site so that people don't leave the site and get lost.

Is there a way to do this in a frame?

Thanks!

  • Yes, I use an i-frame on one of my pages.  Makes visitors feel as though it's part of your site (but it's not).  Here's the code I use in 3.0.  Just past it into a content box, add the URL for the site you're choosing and adjust the size if necessary.   Good luck!

    <iframe width="100%" height="1200" src="YOUR OUTSIDE SITE URL" scrolling="auto" frameborder="0"></iframe>

  • Thanks so much KOS. This really helps!

    This is a great tool for making responsive embeds

    place your webpage URL inbetween the '' under the Generic Iframe option...it will give you a code with responsive styles too..

    <iframe src='YOURLINK'></iframe>

    embedresponsively.com
    • JF well isn't that slick!  I tried it out and it looks great on any size.  Bookmarked that page.  Thank you!

      embedresponsively.com
  • Thanks so much JFarrow! I really appreciate the help. :)

  • I don't know what I'm doing wrong. It's not working. I pasted this code into a content page and got a grayed out blank space:

    <iframe width="100%" height="1200" src="http://homeperformanceforum.org/" scrolling="auto" frameborder="0"></iframe>

    • I think it's Ning; not you.  I'm having difficulty getting pages to load and api.ning.com is what's holding it up.  Server trouble?  I'll try to file a ticket and see if it goes through.  Hang in there........

    • fwiw you can check the internet.  There's a ton of posts out there saying Google doesn't support iframe.........depending on the google version you have.   They're concerned over security (seems to be the reason).

      Definitely have Ning take a look at it. There's someone answering support tickets today - go ahead and file one.

      • Oops some 'adblock' add ons seem to interfere as well.  Again, check the internet.
