PageView Plugin – Embed an IFRAME in WordPress


Download: PageView
Version: 1.5.1
Supports: WordPress 2.5 – 3.1.1
Other: | SVN
Support: Forum

PageView is a plugin that will display another web page inside the current post. This is achieved with the use of an iframe – an HTML tag that allows a webpage to be displayed inline with the current page. Although an iframe can lead to a complicated website, it can be very effective when used appropriately.


  1. Download PageView
  2. Unzip
  3. Copy to your /wp-content/plugins directory
  4. Activate plugin

You can find full details of installing a plugin on the plugin installation page.


Insert iframes using WordPress shortcode syntax.

[pageview url=""]

URL is a required parameter. The following are optional parameters:

  • title – A short title for the iframe
  • desc – A description for the iframe
  • width – The width of the iframe. Defaults to 100%, and can be specified in percent or pixel format (100px or 100%)
  • height – As above, but for height
  • border – ‘yes’ or ‘no’, defaults to ‘no’
  • scrolling – Whether to display scroll bars, ‘yes’, ‘no’, ‘auto. Defaults to ‘no’

For example:

[pageview url="" height="400px" border="yes']

Note: The plugin still supports the older pre-1.5 syntax:

[pageview "title" description]
