To copy this widget to your wiki, cut and paste the entire source of the Iframe widget code page into a page called Widget:Iframe on your wiki.

If you don't have the Widget extension set up on your wiki, go to its description page on and follow the installation instructions.

This widget allows you to add any page within an iframe tag to your site.

!!! Security Warning !!!
Including the page will not let that page steal the data on your site, hack into your user accounts and so on because it is protected by an iframe, but contents of the page will be displayed as part of the page on your site which can cause non-technical security problems through social engineering.

While the url is validated to be a valid url, there is no way the widget can check the contents of the page that is included. When enabling this widget, you allow any user that can edit to include any page, including malicious pages (containing trojans, backdoors, viruses etc), pages that brake out of the iframe and pages that look like your site, but actually is a copy used for phishing.

To insert this widget, use the following code:



  • url - URL of page being inserted
  • width - width of the iframe (default is 400)
  • height - height of the iframe (default is 300)
  • border - border width (default is 1)
