unable to log in in iframes

    hi,

    I use my bbpress forum inside an Iframe..

    Before I didn’t have any problems logging in (IE6 & 7),

    but just now I’m unable to login in the iframe… FF works just fine,

    just IE6&7 are giving troubles… When I go to the real page logging in works just fine.. but that’s not the intention to work outside iframe..

    someone having the same difficulties?

    thx!

    Please provide a URL where this can be experienced. I have not heard about this problem before.

    Can you change the iframe source to a page name rather than relying on the index page of the directory called “forums”? So, instead of this:

    <iframe src="forum"

    Try this:

    <iframe src="forum/index.php"

    I have no idea if that will work. It’s an interesting way to get an integrated look. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that before.

    good idea, but it didn’t work … :/

    how else do you integrate a forum in a site?? very curiouse

    Oh boy – just search these forums for integration.

    http://bbpress.org/forums/tags/integration (threads tagged integration)

    This was a good summary I thought:

    Normally, people adjust the template of their forum to match their website. I haven’t seen one in an iframe yet, and don’t know enough about form submission (login form) and redirection and htaccess rewrite rules to know if it would work like that.

    Preferably not with iframes. iframes are really nasty, because you can never access the url of anything you navigate to and instead of the full browsing window you have just that frame.

    It really depends on the kind of integration you want. If you want visual integration, just make it look the same or use some of the methods other dudes have used here (see Chris’ links).

    this whas kinda my persuasion to choose for bbpress, so I could login from Iframes.. I knew nothing about forums (only phpBB: but this wasn’t easy to work with in iframes)… what a shame :)
