ok...i want to put my forums in an iframe so they appear to be a part of my site but the problem is when you click the home link it opens in the iframe making it so the home page cannot be viewed correctly so you cant do anything besides press the back button...how do i fix this?

You could change the home link to be the forum default link. Only the forum could be opened in the iframe then.

If the forum is only opened in an iframe, the homepage will already be visible.

If you want to leave the home link pointing to your website you would need some javascript (for your homepage) which would detect whether or not the page is loading in an iframe. If it is, it should break out of the iframe. This is quite difficult to do especially if you want it to work on most browsers.

I was looking already but didn't find anything which was suitable, thats why I hadn't responded to the helpdesk query.

I need to see the page on your website with the forum loaded in the iframe.

It'll take time but I'll see what I can do. The page works for me in Firefox but not Internet Explorer.

I think its working now without the javascript.

You just add the following line to the home link in the admin area.

" target="_parent

(It won't show if you try to edit it but you can see it in the source of the forum page)

It crossed my mind earlier and I didn't think it would work. I tried it just to see and it did.
