iFrame Content blocks

iFrame Content blocks


A responsive iFrame that displays integrated content from a 3rd party source.


This module can be placed anywhere and can contain any solution built outside the Indiana platform.


Use tabs to pull in different iFrames into the same module e.g. a daily price graph and monthly price graph.


Use iFrames unless you have to. Google search engine cannot crawl an iFrame which makes the iFrame content not searchable via search engines and can hurt your SEO.




You can pull in content from multiple source URLs by adding tabs in the CMS.
