I have tried time and time again to hardcode an <iframe> into one of my Sharepoint 2010 pages. It looks brilliant until I save and close, when I do sharepoint removes any trace of an <iframe>.

My Question:

Is there any way to force sharepoint to allow iFrames? If not is there an alternative and how would I go about doing it?


  • To help other answers... how do you added the IFrame? Designer, content editor etc? – SPArchaeologist-様 Nov 29 '12 at 15:43

Take a look at the Page Viewer web part (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Display-a-Web-page-on-a-SharePoint-page-by-adding-the-Page-Viewer-Web-Part-7f61feec-9b3d-4805-a960-07636ba59527 ). It uses an iframe.

You can't add iframe directly onto the page's script, SharePoint will remove out unsafe html tags. You can add iframe by clicking INSERT (top ribbon), then click Embed Code. Paste your iframe code over there, and nothing will be removed.
