Advanced iFrame Pro WordPress plugin is a great plugin for showing flexible content.
Resize the iframe to the content height or width
On the same domain or if you are able to use the external workaround you can resize the iframe to the iframe height. Also, dynamic size changes in the iframe are detected and even auto height of hidden elements is supported.
Show only specifiy areas of the iframe
Even if you are NOT on the same domain and you are NOT able to modify the external page you can show a part of the remote iframe. With the included area selector you can simply select the area you want to show with your mouse. Also, you can hide certain areas of the other page. For perfect integration, the zoom is also supported!
Zoom iframe content
You can zoom the content of an iframe with a fixed ratio and also by auto zoom which does calculate the factor depending on the browser size. Especially on non-responsive pages, this can be the only solution for mobile devices.
Modify css styles
You can dynamically change the css of the parent and depending on your setup even of the iframe page too. So you can hide elements like header and footers or overwrite static sizes to make a page more responsive.
Lazy load is the perfect feature to enhance the loading time of your page. So first your main page is loaded and afterward the iframe. You can also load the iframe when it is visible only or load the iframe with a click on a button.
Loading iframes often takes additional time. So now you can show your users a loading icon until the iframe is fully loaded.
Advanced iframe pro has several options to make your iframes responsive. Also, videos are supported. Please see this blog entry for details.
Many websites look different on different devices. With the included browser detection you are able to show different iframes or different parts of an iframe depending on the detected device.
Change link targets and URLs and show iframes as a layer with header/footer
You can dynamically change the link targets of the parent and depending on your setup even of the iframe page too. In the iframe even links can be changed now! This also enables the feature that links can be directly opened in an extra layer in an iframe. So users don’t leave your webpage even when they select external links! A custom header/footer can also be included to the layer.
Scrolling on ipad and iphone
By default, not all IOS versions do support scrolling inside an iframe. An IOS workaround combined with the browser detection is done in the plugin as the IOS workaround does not work on other systems!
Advanced url parameter handling
Many options to parse parameters are supported. You can forward parameters from the parent and you have many placeholders like the current WordPress username. You can even add the iframe URL as a parameter to the parent URL to be able to bookmark the currently selected page.
Use iframes in the widget areas
A widget is included to add iframes or even any shortcode in your widget areas.
Provide parts of your website to other domains
This feature does enable you to offer parts of your website with only 2 lines of code (js + iframe). See the “content filter” and the “Add ai_external.js local” solution.
Check your iframes
The iframe checker is now included internally and can also check once every day all of your iframes! Since version 2020 this is done in parallel AND also checks iframe which is NOT advanced iframe iframes! So can monitor already existing iframes if they are still can be included! Everyone who uses iframes should use these features to make sure that users don’t see blank pages suddenly.
Standalone version included!
You can use this plugin not only in WordPress but any PHP page where you can insert a few lines of code!
Cookie iframe support!
Safari and IE do not support Cookies in iframes very well by default. Also, all other browsers can be configured that this does not work. The 3rd party cookie in the iframe workaround provides a possible fix for this!
A Gutenberg block is now also included.
