Hi all,

How can you load a different website or web page into the 'main stage' of your XOOPS site so that you maintain your sites menu's, headers, footers etc.

Is this using blocks?

You could use an Iframe.

Hervé from InstantZero has a module to do this I believe:

http://xoops.instant-zero.com/modules/pages/index.php?pagenum=6

This one's FREE too, so you can't say I'm trying to push or advertise a product this time. I actually forgot about this module, but with a simple search I found it for you.

Or you could make your own IFrame, I believe it's basic HTML so shouldn't take you long to learn.

Here's a cool FREE resource I like: http://www.w3schools.com

Again that ones free too.............

lol... good stuff.

Iframe = easy but not very web friendly.


<iframe src="linkhere" width="your width" height="your height" scrolling="auto" />



oh and the name of the module is myiframe. I like to use it with a content module.

I've read so many mixed opinions on this from various experts some pro some against.

what's your take on it being used within websites, I know you said you use it, so I'm presuming you don't see it as an all together bad thing.

That's not a problem. Are you from the UK or know anything of the UK?

I ask because I'm a Yorkshireman, their renowned for being tight fisted, I also have Scottish blood too, and it's a world wide saying (some would say fact) that Scotsmen are tight, although many of the Scott's these days would lead believe that's only a myth, ask Catz he a Scotsman. lol

So yeah don't worry about being tight, I am too
