Web designer credit appears over page title

  1. I created a simple blog using WordPress.com and template Ari by Elmastudio. I used iframe to embed it into my existing website.
    Here is a link to it: http://www.soundbridgecapital.com/thoughts

    When embedded, the designer credit for WordPress.com and Ari by Elmastudio appears over my blog title "SoundBridge Thoughts". This occurs on IE10 most of the time. I have not seen this problem on Firefox, Chrome or Safari.

    How can we get this corrected?

    I can send you a jpg screenshot by email, if needed.

    Thank you in advance for your kind assistance.

    The blog I need help with is rick1blog.wordpress.com.

  2. You can't and this is not a WordPress.com issue that you can get support for here. WordPress.com blogs are all free hosted here and they are not intended to be displayed iframes on any other sites at all. Here at wordpress.com removing footer links credits which in essence implies that one has created theme they have not created, and are hosting a blog that they are not hosting, is not allowed.

    May I remove credit links such as ‘Blog at WordPress.com’, theme, font, or toolbar links?
    All WordPress.com bloggers are required to maintain the credit links, even our VIP bloggers. Please do not hide the footer credits or the toolbar with CSS after purchasing a Custom Design upgrade. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/#frequently-asked-questions

  3. Note that all support for http://www.soundbridgecapital.com must come from http:///wordpress.org/support/ If you don't have a username account at WordPress.org click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.org bloggers.

  4. Thank you for your fast reply! I will register with http:///wordpress.org/support/ to see if they can help.

  5. You're welcome.

  6. It looks like you have a plain html web site - so WordPress.ORG would not support what you are doing either - you could convert your whole site over and drive it with WordPress.ORG - you don't have much content so the conversion would not be large - also iframe in another site looks a bit cheezy to many people and can give you search engine issues - and as noted above we don't provide support for iframe issues

  7. My website is an old design. I plan to revise it and get a developer to make it with WordPress.org system. That will take time. Before that, I want to get the blog up and I want the blog to appear within my website. Not ideal but better than linking outside of my site. iframe seemed to be an excellent temporary solution except for the problem I described.

  8. May I just add one more thing?Be very cautious about your site security. iframes are notoriously security risks. They are very unstable and there are hackers who seek sites that have them out.

  9. Thank you very much for that tip!

    Does the iframe security risk compromise the entire site or does it only affect the page it is on and the embedded item?

    Rick
