I am trying to embed SharePoint in an Iframe of an html page. I did some research and found out I had to embed:

<WebPartPages:AllowFraming runat=”server” />

into the master page of SharePoint.

I made the above change and SharePoint is now showing up correctly in an iFrame for me and a few other users.

However, some accounts are still getting the security message:

"This content cannot be displayed in a frame".

I know these accounts can view the page when they go to it directly, as well as when they click Open this content in a new window.

Any ideas on what might be going on? I tried the accounts on other machines and still the same issue. My account works fine on multiple machines.

Did you publish and approve the master page?
Very often, we edit the master page, test it and are happy with the changes. But we forget to publish/approve it, so users with read-only rights don't see the new version of it...

  • This worked! I was having a bug with SP Designer. It already thought the file was checked-in, when in fact it wasn't. I had to check it out and check-it back in for this to work. Thanks! Commented Dec 23, 2015 at 19:04
