    Can someone please tell me how to import an iframe into WordPress? I created my website with Weebly through iPage web hosting services. I need to implement a database program into my site, but not sure how to do it. The database is a couponing database that enables me to make weekly deals and publish them on my website. When I try to copy the iframe code into my weebly site through HTML it give me an error. Do I need to be copying the code into WordPress? And if so….how do I get the iframe into WordPress? And will WordPress allow me to use my database in WordPress and then publish my weekly deals into my Weebly site? This is so confusing and I’ve been searching for answers for days. Please, if anyone can offer some help please respond here or my email address is (email redacted). I am appreciative of any help you can give.

    The blog I need help with is www.thecouponcantina.com.

    iframes are not allowed at wordpress.com for security reasons. To use an iframe, you would have to self-host a wordpress site on a third-party hosting service such as dreamhost, bluehost, etc.

    The site you are asking about does not seem to be hosted on WordPress.COM so you need to make friends over at WordPress.ORG the keepers of the software you are using.

    @aux, I think that is the site that they want to “iframe” into their blog here.

    The site I looked at would be a TOS problem here – but it was not hosted here. Guess if they ever stop by maybe we will get the inside info. But yes you are correct they can’t iframe anything into a blog here.

    Thank you for your responses here. I am new to this so it has taken a great deal of tutorial help and reading lots of blogs to get me to this point. Forgive me, I failed to mention earlier that my host server iPage has WordPress and Weebly built in to it’s dashboard. I started building my site in Weebly because it uses a drag and drop interface that seemed more plausible for me as a beginner. I only got so far with it though as I see now I’m having trouble posting an iframe into it. When I switch back over into my host server’s dashboard I can click on WordPress, open it up and insert the iframe there. However when I want to view it, it will open a new page (almost as if I’ve created an entirely new template and my Weebly template is gone.) I can’t seem to import my already created Weebly template into WordPress. It seems I will have to build my entire site over again using WordPress. It has let me enter the iframe and when I switch over to view it the database it there. It looks more complicated to build my site in WordPress as I am not familiar with the format. Thank you again for any ideas here.
