<iframe> and CSS: how to change the background color?

Recommended Posts

I want to use <iframe> in my page to show the result of a sportsteam. The backgound of that site is 'white' but i want it to be transparant to match my site.

In the instructions it says that you can refer to a CSS on you site to adjust the colors. Simple question. What is the location of the CSS i use in the pages or is there a simple way to make the background transparant.

This is the link i'am using now (and it is not working!)

<iframe src="http://west.basketba...ijd/uitslag.pl?&CSS=/wp-content/themes/pagelines-template-theme/style.css&szn_Naam=2012-2013&cmp_ID=95&plg_ID=244&org_ID=2&LVactie=Wedstrijdgegevens+tonen&Sorteer=wed_Datum&menubalk=off&statistieken=off&title=off&hal=off&tijd=off" width="900" height="430" >

thanks for any help...

I've never done this before, but you might want to wrap the iframe inside a div, then style the div to have the color or transparency you want.

So, <div class="myiframe"><iframe.... and close it with </iframe></div>

You can use something like:

.myiframe {background-color:transparent;}

Maceef,

If the page you are including in your iframe allows for an external stylesheet to be linked from the query string, you will at least need to link to it with a full url, not a relative one. So instead of


&CSS=/wp-content/themes/pagelines-template-theme/style.css

use

&CSS=http://YOURFULLURLdotWHATEVER/wp-content/themes/pagelines-template-theme/style.css

You will probably need to encode the url for usage there too.

Thanks for the tip but it does noet work (strangely enough)

Looking at the FTP side there is no pagelines-template-theme directory.

So setting it to the right one (just pagelines) with or without http does not work

here's the complete code! mayby you can spot the fault.

iframe src="http://west.basketba...l=off&tijd=off" width="900" height="430"

thanks for helping out!

If there is no pagelines-template-theme directory, it means you're not using the Base theme. You'll need to use the Base theme in order to make your adjustments. For reference: http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/How_to_Use_the_Base_Theme

Maceef,

After a quick test I was able to get it to work using a quick test file. See here.

A few things:

  1. You need to leave off the beginning http:// as it is added by the script, or it will fail.
  2. Adding the framework's CSS file is totally unnecessary as you only need one rule to give it a transparent background (see my test file).
    As of v2.3 the framework has gone to 100% LESS, so there isn't any styles in the pagelines/style.css file anyways. Even if there were, those css rules would be using selectors that are specific to pagelines, not the page you are trying to load inline.
  3. URL to stylesheet doesn't appear to need to be encoded.

Hope that all makes sense. Again, here is the one line of css you need to include in the stylesheet you link:


body { background-color: transparent; }

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
       
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
       
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
       
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
       
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
       
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.
       
      Best regards,

      Hi!

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:


      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
