    Default Web page within a web page

    My question is it possible to place a web page within a web page using a placeholder instead of the widget that Xara provides?

    Joe,

    The code is simple:
    Code:
    <iframe name="frameName" src="URL" width=100% height=100%>Change your browser</iframe>
    URL is the full URI path unless you are able to use relative addressing.
    frameName is any meaningful descriptor and is used to control the iframe contents or style remotely.
    No one normally gets to see the text between the iframe start and end tags.

    I may be stupid, but I do put that in the body in the placeholder correct! By the way Acorn thanks for such a quick response.

    Sorry Joe, not you me. Yes, the Placeholder Body.

    The page may not size to the Placeholder dimensions so you may see scrollbars; including scrolling="no" used to be good.
    Nowadays you need to wrap the iframe in a container and set that to overflow: hidden.
    For a fit, you can scale, up or down, with style="transform: scale(scaling);", where scaling is a number like 0.75.
    It can be quite difficult if the inner web page has links to other pages of differing sizes.

    Once again thanks Acorn I finally got what I wanted to work without a placeholder but plan on trying it your way I don't like working with the widget. Anyway you can see what I was trying to do at https://www.flea-usa.com its the map at the bottom so you can click on a state to go to the particular state you are looking for. Tried it for mobile but to small to click on any particular state so it won't be on my mobile but works well on tablets and desktops. Sure appreciate the help.
