This page covers the basics of how to do iframes. BUT there is much more on the gotFusion extend support members tutorials like how to do screen grabs, a how to making your scrollbars match the colour scheme of your iframe, and so much more that I can go over in here, but for starters here is a nifty FREE Iframe code generator with a preview function to take all the pain out of coding and testing that will give you a taste of what is available to gotFusion extended support members.
The iframe described on this page is this one:
Basics To put an iframe on a NOF page, do this:
Use the gotFusion Iframe generator to write your Iframe code
Draw a text box where you want the iframe to be, or use an existing text box.
Click your mouse where you want the iframe to be, hit Control-T.
Put your iframe code into the code entry box.
All of the code used to created the example iframe above is
<IFRAME SRC="i_content.html" WIDTH=600 HEIGHT=250 FRAMEBORDER=1 SCROLLING=auto></IFRAME>
Use the gotFusion iframe generator to change the width and height to suit yourself. Make the frameborder 1 or 0 (for on or off) and make scrolling auto, yes, or no.
You can pull the iframe content from anywhere. Change "i_content.html" in the code above to reflect your content page (including its path if it's not in the same directory as its parent page), or make it a full URL if the content is from elsewhere on the web eg
A relative path:
<IFRAME SRC="../your.html" WIDTH=etc...
or an absolute reference:
<IFRAME SRC="http://www.yoursite.com/your.html" WIDTH=etc...
Important: Don't leave any "gap" for the iframe to fill. The length of your page will adjust to fit the iframe. When you insert code like this into a NOF page, the look in NOF won't be wysiwyg, so you may need to publish and test a few times to get the width etc right.
