Show a website in an iframe

by @pixiebrix

What is an iFrame?

An Iframe, or inline frame, places another HTML document in a frame. This is typically how websites embed ads or videos inside of web pages.

Using the iFrame brick

In PixieBrix, an iFrame can be used as the renderer for a sidebar panel or panel, or inside a “render document” brick.

After adding an iFrame as the final brick in a blueprint or inside a document, paste the URL you want to display inside the url field.

Width and height can be adjusted to better fit the frame into the sidebar.
