An i-frame can be used to embed another website into your site. Essentially what you’re doing is opening up a kind of window on your site that lets the user see and navigate the other site while still on your site.
If you’ve ever had the need to do this, then the Easy I-frame Loader plugin makes it simple to do.
Once installed, all you need to do is insert a shortcode with the URL of the page you want to embed in your site.
You can set a number of attributes for the window, and you may need to do that. For example, you may need to control the height or the width of the window, or make it so that it’s able to include scrollbars or not.
Should You Use I-Frames?
Of course you will want to be careful with your use of i-frames. Many people don’t like them because it makes it seem as if they are trapped on your site. And, of course, the site you are embedding might not like them because you are effectively using their content while still keeping the visitor on your site.
But there can be plenty of legitimate uses of an i-frame. Suppose you have an Amazon store, for example, that you wanted to include on your site.
Whatever the reason you need an i-frame for, the Easy I-frame Loader plugin does indeed make it easy.
