    Does supports iframe?

    The blog I need help with is

  2. No, for security reasons you cannot use Iframes. You would need a self-hosted blog to do that. However there are a lot of widgets available, let us know what you are trying to do and we can tell you whether there is a way.

  3. @syedsirajuddinsohail,
    If you really need an iframe widget to show up in your blog, you might want to take a look at a workaround:

  4. i'm having the same problem. i would like to use Facebook Likebox in my blog....any chances to do so??

  5. i had read sanjisdas suggestion, but that is not what im hopping is to use iframe without flash as it will guide us to a new window. it is good if the visitor can directly 'like' in the blog it self.

  6. What are you trying to accomplish? Just getting a LIKE option? The WordPress Like is built in, and there's a thread in the forum on adding a Facebook Like.

  7. thanks raincoaster, but i think you had get me wrong. what i mean with 'like' option is for my blog visitor have an option to like my facebook fan page and not my post. any idea??

  8. @azmirkhalid:

    There are 4 options, include "like" for your fan page.

  9. thanks duto for your reply. i had used facebook-badge in my blog. what im looking for is facebook "like box" function. in facebook, they only give code option for iFrame and XFBML and both are not supported by WP. did i miss something or it is just me that do not find the way??

    btw, my blog is

  10. Do you mean like the one on the right sidebar of my blog? If you like it, we do not need to change any code. I only change "_TOP" into "_blank" do to open in other tab.


    this is what im trying to get into my blog.

  12. There are a few tips, pls check sanjidas blog (

  13. duto, don't pimp your blog out in the forum. That has NO relevance.

    Here is how to have a Facebook Like button on your blog: it does not require iframes.

  14. @raincoaster:
    I'am sorry. Thank you.

  15. I was too harsh, but just specifically focus on the question asked.

    People are often reading .org instructions and ignoring .com instructions. Just point them to the specific thread that answers the question.

  16. You are right. I agree with you.

  17. @azmirkhalid,
    i had read sanjisdas suggestion, but that is not what im hopping is to use iframe without flash as it will guide us to a new window. it is good if the visitor can directly 'like' in the blog it self.

    The workaround I gave allows readers to access the likebox right in your blog without opening it in a new window. First a visitor clicks a text link in a box and then the text link is replaced by the Facebook likebox right in that box, right in your blog.
    See an example here:
    How to add a Facebook Likebox in a blog - part 2

    You must understand that It's NOT possible to show the likebox that is visible instantly in because of code restriction.

  18. so no iframes on wordpress.COM? I wanted to put in a market snapshot widget so my clients could sign up for the info.

    <a href=""></a>

    Is this not allowed on, only .org?

  19. No iFrames on That is correct. But that code doesn't seem to have any iFrames. It seems to be somewhat munged, actually.

  20. ok... so maybe I don't need an iframe to add this capability? Or should I just give up on it?
    I tried putting it inside a text widget but that just added a link to the market snapshot, not the widget itself. You can see what I'm talking about at

    Sorry for my ignorance... I'm that terrible mix of someone with specific data & aesthetic needs, but no actual coding knowledge (yet).

  21. That code is not good code. You have to have good code before you can put it on a blog. What are you trying to do, exactly?

  22. What I'm trying to do is put a "market snapshot" widget on my blog. If you look at the blog, at the very bottom of the right-hand pane are the words "market snapshot" with a link below it. If you click on the link it takes you to a page with nothing but the market snapshot widget. Instead of having a link that goes to the widget, I'm trying to get the widget on the blog. I got the code from the market snapshot people...

    For reference, here's the blog address:
    and here's the page address that the widget is on:
    Thanks for the help!

  23. Without the actual CODE we cannot help you.

    Adding Facebook like box widget :

  25. Hi,

    I would like to embed a film from British Pathe in my blog, but the embedded code contains iframes.

    <h2>CAUGHT BY THE CAMERA (NO. 70)</h2><iframe src="" name="pathe_flash_embed" width="352" height="264" scrolling="no" frameborder="1"><p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p></iframe>

    Here's the website that the film is from and where I got the code from:

    Here is my blog:

    Is there a way that I can embed this film in my blog? Or can I only put a link to it?

    Thank you.
