@MacFan4000: To me it looks like this one is unmaintained. I may be wrong though.

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

Apparently it is not.

Github repo link not working

Summary by Kghbln

Link fixed

Uwe a (talkcontribs)

The download link from github does not work, nor am I able to find the user/repo on github manually. I wonder if there is advise for using another extension (e.g. iframePage)?

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

I fixed the docu.

You could alternatively use the "iframe" widget provided by the Widgets extension.

I doesn't produces this output on 1.27 due to the 100% parameter.

Johnywhy (talkcontribs)

@Lanthanis thx, but i don't understand your comment. What's the fix?

Lanthanis (talkcontribs)

@Johnywhy If you use the 100% parameter (I could test it in MW 1.27.4 only) it won't show the page. You need to specify a fixed length or height. But I don't know if this will solve the problem due to possible changes in the extension for REL_30

@Johnywhy You could try to edit the common.js (yourwiki.com/wiki/MediaWiki:Common.js) with the following code to fit the screen:

iframe {

    width: 100% !important;

    height: * !important;

    min-width: 600px;

    min-height: 500px;

}

This was proposed by a guest topic: HERE

i think you mean common.css :)

Lanthanis (talkcontribs)

Indeed, sorry, just scripting the whole day ;)

Johnywhy (talkcontribs)

didn't seem to work. but thx!

Is there any possibility for iDisplay when embed page to have that page fit screen?

I need to embed another page but it is too big, and it looks really ugly and I can not see everything, its a table, and I cant use this properly..

Any suggestion is welcome

Sorry, the website fh-hfv-web02.hf.brnet.intcannot be found.

is this maybe my ISP trying to prevent cross scripting or something?

Edit "iDisplay.php", put in your own server name (or I guess IP if static and DNS not setup) that you installed iDisplay to. Remember to alter the path if needed. You only need to alter the second occurrence since the first is a credit.

Please allow to allow to use this extension (I mean to create a page with this widget) only by users with certain role.

It is clearly not quite secure to allow inserting iframe for all users.

It would be useful to add a handle to resize the embedded page using the mouse.

It may also be useful that the size could be remembered for each user.

As a (not the simplest) variant, we may add "embed classes" (a simple string variable), so that for each embed class (and each user) the widget size could be remembered and by default displayed the same for all widgets of the same class.

I used iDisplay to embed phpBB in a page of the wiki. It works perfectly. I could not find any way to configure the extension for a flexible window size, so I left the size undefined in the page and added:

iframe {

width: 100% !important;

height: * !important;

min-width: 600px;

min-height: 500px;

}

and got a perfect, flexible, full-page (within the page frame) portal.

Oops, can't edit a guest comment... added that to the Common.css file, if it isn't obvious. Users who want to use iDisplay for multiple purposes might want to define a more limited override for a full-page embed.

Running on 1.22alpha (09/2013) on Ubuntu 12.04 server.

As documentation is slightly lacking here's a couple of tidbits. To remove the SAFE, i.e., Password feature, make your statement as {{#iDisplay|URL|WIDTH|HEIGHT}}. Leave the SAFE out. To turn on password just include the |1}}.

If you are running your own wiki boxen, you will want to edit the file iDisplay.php in your /path/to/wiki/extensions/iDisplay/ directory. On or about line 60, change the URL to match your instance of iDisplay.

Works perfectly.
