The e-commerce.

Is it possible to iFrames in product description?


Recommended Posts



I've recently starting administering an ecommmerce that has been customised from oscommerce.


The site owner would like to add a tool from a third party which requires to be run in an iframe (its a little colour option script from a manufacturer) - is this possible - I've tried the obvious of adding the <iframe>URL</iframe> in the html editor but it strips out the <iframe> tag and just leaves the link in the description.


Now I've read about the iframe security issues with iframes - so does this mean they can't be used?


Is there a work around? The owner REALLY wants this feature as the competition has it on their site.


Thank you!

From your post, it sounds like you tried something like


However, that is not the format for an iframe, which is

<iframe src="URL">Text to display if iframes are disabled.</iframe>

Note that you don't have to put any text between the start and the end tag.

Always back up before making changes.
