Client needs to add a link to a supplier's catalog (a page). Their page has no reference to my client or an obvious "back" to the client's site. I think I should be able to put the link in an iFrame. But when I do, the client's page renders, then automatically redirects to the supplier's site. I'd like it to show like a video would when embeded (but it's not a video)

I've tried stackoverflow.com/questions/10949966/iframes-in-wordpress
http://www.reddit.com/r/Wordpr....._to_embed/
and the plugin (iFrames)

No luck with any of those options.

I'm using Thesis 2.6.1, Agility 3.1 and WordPress 4.9.4

Maybe this just isn't possible?

Thanks

Kerch - unless that site implements oEmbed the only way to embed it is via an iframe with all of the problems that entails.

However, the behavior you are seeing there isn't the typical behavior of iframes.  Something is redirecting the web page, not embedding an iframe.

Thanks Rick.

Do  I understand you're saying the oEmbed issue is the external site's issue?
and is the redirecting happening on my end or theirs?

Thanks

Kerch, oEmbed is a system of embedding various types of internet assets into web pages.  Both the target and the recipient websites need to support oEmbed.  WordPress supports oEmbed in both directions.  You can use oEmbed to embed a WordPress page into another and you can insert oEmbeddable objects into your WordPress page.

The redirection is coming from your end of it.  If it weren't it would be considered a cross site scripting hack and Google would have blacklisted the site.
