View Full Version : Using Javascript with Iframe

04-11-2015, 04:55 AM

I have a traffic echange which works well, what I want to do is this. When a user logs in he/she is taken to n oto or advertising webpage, the webpage is timed at 20 seconds when he/she will be redirected to their member area.

Javascript works ok/timer is ok/redirect is ok. but how do I show the actual OTO page/Advertising page?:mad:

I have tried using Iframes but all that happens is that the script shows twice.

Can anyone help?

There are cross site restrictions on javascript. So, if one page is on one site, and the other is on another, they cannot communicate via javascript. That might play a role, as not even the location.href of an iframe may be set to off site resources in certain cases. You can always set its src property though. The href is is a property of an iframe as a window object (window.frames[0].href), the src is a property of the iframe as an element on the page (document.getElementById('myIframe').src).

Many off site resources refuse to allow your site to put their content in a frame/iframe or object tag. There's no way around that except to get the other site to change its policy.

And/or there may just be some other sort of problem.

If you want more help, please post a link to the page on your site that shows the problem.
