Whether its videos, images or portfolio pages, seeing them on a completely different website raises the question of ‘valid content sharing.’
What is IFrame?
IFrames are used on almost every website and webpage these days and for a good reason. IFrames lets you create a medium to display content or web pages to and from a completely different website without having to worry about having the content stolen or copyright allegations.
The way iFrames basically work is that they let you display a different webpage on some portion of your own webpage by embedding it. The code inside an embedded webpage can’t be directly accessed which creates a certain sense of content protection.
Embedding Visual Content using IFrames
iFrames are also used a lot for embedding visual and audio content. Whether its video or audio or images it’s a great idea to use iFrames to preview these content as you can easily host them on external servers and sources and easily link it without any difficulty.
This makes sharing your content easy as other website owners can also easily use your videos on their posts and furthermore, the viewership and web analytics are shared with you as well.
How to embed iFrame in WordPress using Plugin

- Width/Height– For height and Width of the iFrame window, define values in Px
- Frameborder – For displaying or hiding the Frameborder, use values ‘0’ or ‘1.’
- Align – For defining the window’s page alignment, Use values “left” “right” “right” “top” “bottom.”
