Is there a way to embed a different website in a window of some sort on the page? I only ask because I was slightly disappointed with the forums available for embedding here, as there is a distinct lack of anything (unless it's because I'm using it for free, but I guess I need someone to confirm this), so I was wondering if I could embed a different forums I own but is under a sub-domain. If not is it possible for Yola to implement the embedding stuff for future use? Might be useful...

Hi, Im' david, a member here at yola, there are many ways you can add iframes or windows within' your pages to show other urls directly in your homepage. If you seek adding a small/ positioned window revealing another site or target, this could be accomplished with the use of iframes. yola gives you the basic tools, but setting up scripted code is really dependent on your abilities and knowhow.

Hello Remlie,

David is right, you can use an iFrame to achieve this. To add an iFrame to your page, drag and drop an HTML Widget and then paste the following code:

<iframe src ="http://www.google.com" width="100%" height="300">
<p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p>
</iframe>

Replace "http://www.google.com" with the URL you want to use.
