Tumblr iFrame error message

Hi Yola users,
      I am trying to embed an iFrame of a tumblr page and I'm running into a couple of issues . The iframe box can link to the required tumblr but it refuses to load posts and presents the message. I know the iframe is partly operational as it succesfully lets me click on links within the iframe and posts on these linked pages are perfectly fine (see image below).








 If I type in the tumblr in numerous browsers the landing page (containing posts) loads correctly (see below)



This led to me conclude the issue must be with the iframe as opposed to Tumblr coding.

Have I missed something obvious?
If there's no work around for this issue, is there any iframe code that lets one of these tagged tumblr pages be the landing page of the iframe box? ? I have been using this iframe code: <iframe src="mytumblrURL”></" width="400" height="400" frameborder="0"></iframe>

I am aware that Yola provides a tumblr widget but I really want to keep the design of said page.

Thanks in advance for you help :)

This incomplete iframe presentation with Tumblr has been reported  on other places. You may like to check this link as a start point: http://indexhibit.org/forum/thread/7405/

Hi Gop,
   I tried validating the Tumblr theme as suggested in your link but it threw up errors with codes that Tumblr recognises as opposed to faults in the html coding. Are you aware of any alternatives to the iframe or any other work around to my problem?

If I can directly link to one of the tagged Tumblr pages, it'll be an acceptable solution to the problem as it would just appear as part of the webpage.

Just to clarify validating it is still returning the same error. The landing page throws up 'No url' found but the pages within the iframe still work meaning the iframe is partially operational.

I just wanted to add that I completely understand the importance of a clean design but by embedding your blog into an iFrame instead of using the widget, you're losing all the awesome SEO "juice" from your blog. Take a look at this blog post for more information in case you might want to give the widget a try!

Don't worry guys. I fixed said issue with the google gadget widget. I don't how I missed that.

Thanks for the help anyway  :)

PS: If possible could this thread be deleted?
