This is not really a Yola question, but figured I'd ask here anyways. My main website is Joomla. I'm using a guestbook component on that site and would like to be able to generate an iframe of that guestbook to display on my Yola site. Problem is, I don't want to iframe the whole page, just the area where the guestbook component displays.. Does anyone know if this can be done? If so, how to do it?

Hello Mike

Here's a thread that I saw on Google that may be of help. I don't know if it works though: http://www.webdeveloper.com/forum/sho...

Please try on a test page first to keep your original content intact should anything go wrong.

Hmm maybe.. Although, how can I add those CSS rules to the head section of my site? Or is there another way to define this CSS within the HTML widget?

You don't have access to the head section of your site. What does work for some people is to add the head section of code in one HTML Widget and the body section of the code into another HTML widget.

Here are steps to using the HTML Widget:

1. Drag-and-drop an HTML Widget from the Sidebar on the right onto your page (the icon for this is a blue sphere).
2. An HTML editor will open up that will allow you to write or paste your code (use right-click > paste or ctrl-V to paste).
3. When you are done, click "OK" and you will see the way that the HTML displays on your page.

Well I halfway got it, kinda screwy looking at the moment:

I'm using firebug to tweak the CSS positioning....
