What is an iframe?

An iFrame is an HTML element that allows you to embed another HTML document within the current webpage. It enables the seamless integration of content from external sources into a web page, creating a window or container where the embedded content can be displayed. This content can be from the same domain or a different domain altogether.

The iFrame element has attributes like src to specify the source URL of the content to be embedded, width and height to define the dimensions of the iFrame window, and other attributes to customize the appearance and behavior of the embedded content.

Easy Ways to Add iFrame in Gutenberg & Elementor

Adding iFrame in Gutenberg Using Code

Using the “Custom HTML” block inside the Gutenberg editor is one of the easiest ways to add an iFrame to a WordPress page.

Here’s an example HTML code.

<iframe src="https://www.example.com" width="800" height="600" frameborder="0"></iframe>

iFrame attributes:
  • src: Specifies the source URL of the content to be embedded in the iframe.
  • width: Sets the width of the iframe in pixels or as a percentage of its container.
  • height: Defines the height of the iframe in pixels or as a percentage.
  • frameborder: Determines whether to show a border around the iframe. 0 for no border, 1 for a border.
  • scrolling: Controls the appearance of scrollbars inside the iframe. “yes” for scrollbars, “no” to hide them.
  • allowfullscreen: Enables full-screen display of the embedded content.
  • sandbox: Applies a security sandbox to restrict the iframe’s behavior.
  • name: Provides a unique identifier for the iframe.
