html frames and iframes from other sites that won’t load: some links

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/05/14

Back in the days, framing stuff from other sites would just work. Nowadays, often they don’t because of a variety of reasons, often the site not wanting to be embedded, which is OK with me.

But it pays knowing what they do and how they do it, to ensure it is not an accidental setting of the address bar URL to the wrong value like in

  if(top != window) {
    top.location = window.location

So here are some links for me to dig deeper when I encounter framing issues again:

My basic idea for a workaround is to go through a proxy.

It looks like others had this idea too, so some links future reading via cors proxy – Google Search:


<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width; initial-scale=1.0; maximum-scale=1.0; user-scalable=0;">
<body style="margin:0px;padding:0px;overflow:hidden">
<iframe src="__URL_HERE__" frameborder="0" style="overflow:hidden;overflow-x:hidden;overflow-y:hidden;height:100%;width:100%;position:absolute;top:0px;left:0px;right:0px;bottom:0px" height="100%" width="100%"></iframe>
