ℹ️ Introduction

Probably the most advanced but very simple to use <iframe> plugin for Bubble. An <iframe> element allows to "embed" an external website to the Bubble app.

Please note that some websites disable the ability to be shown in an iframe on an external website. As a quick example, you can't render google.com in your iframe.

πŸ”₯ Features

  • Change the url dynamically without page reloads

  • YouTube mode to embed URL of a YouTube video

  • Set iframe's width/height dynamically

  • Scroll bar control (show / hide)

  • iframe's "sandbox" attribute control to securelly embed external pages (allow-downloads, allow-popups, allow-same-origin etc). Recommended for advanced users

  • Setting title, id, class attributes

  • Plugin fires events (when URL is invalid) so you can add custom error handling

πŸ“š Documentation

Option

Type

Description

allow-same-origin

Yes/No

If this token is not used, the resource is treated as being from a special origin that always fails the same-origin policy (potentially preventing access to data storage/cookies and some JavaScript APIs).

allow-downloads

Yes/No

Allows for downloads to occur with a gesture from the user.

allow-forms

Yes/No

Allows the resource to submit forms. If this keyword is not used, form submission is blocked.

allow-modals

Yes/No

Lets the resource open modal windows.

allow-popups

Yes/No

Allows popups (such as window.open(), target="_blank", or showModalDialog()). If this keyword is not used, the popup will silently fail to open.

allow-popups-to-escape-sandbox

Yes/No

Lets the sandboxed document open new windows without those windows inheriting the sandboxing. For example, this can safely sandbox an advertisement without forcing the same restrictions upon the page the ad links to.

allow-scripts

Yes/No

Lets the resource run scripts (but not create popup windows).

allow-top-navigation

Yes/No

Lets the resource navigate the top-level browsing context (the one named _top).
