I have an Offsite Page that removes the Themes, Header, Footer and Nav Bar


(tim parsons) #1

I have an Offsite Page stack, when the page is Previewed it removes the Themes, Header, Footer and Nav Bar, surely this is not normal, I thought an Offsite Page should simply appear in the Themes Main Content Area, leaving the Header, Footer and Nav Bar intact so that a visitor can select another page on the Site.

Tim-
No. An offsite page links to a page not in your Rapidweaver file, so no, it will not have your RW headers, etc.
I think you’re thinking of iframe?

Ah Lisa, THANKS, i do believe you have hit the nail on the head, BUT:- is there an iFrame stack ?

Yes :slight_smile:
But also a page style.

Sorry Lisa, it isnt working !!
http://www.mathcats.com/explore/convert.html
that is the page that i am trying to get in the main content page area, i have tried the S4S Embed stack, that works perfectly for a smaller page from the same site http://www.mathcats.com/explore/convert.html

The iFrame plugin page doesnt fare any better. I have avoided using PlusKit for such a long time that i have forgotten how to use it properly !, i know i get the iFrame plug in page into a normal stacks page with @import((page) , i am just not sure where the @import((page)) should go ?

If i can get this page to display correctly i will write to the Author of the Site to get there permission :slight_smile:

Is your website mathcats.com? or are you trying to get that page into your website? If so, what does your page look like with the 2 options?
Do you have a screenshot of the RW page and your settings?
You shouldn’t need @import with the embed stack.

Hi Lisa, i really appreciate you trying to get me on the right track, at the moment i am sticking with EMBED, which is used above, but the EMBED stacks contents simply Wipes out the contents of the themes header, nav bar and footer.

LOL, i am not the author of MathCats, i wish i was that clever ! :slight_smile:

Tim-
OK, Here’s where I admit I haven’t used an iframe page or embed this way before. I can see what you’re saying. It flashes all my content, then the iframe replaces it.
@willwood suggestions for embed stack or is that the way it works with iframe? or anyone else familiar with using iframe va page or stack?

Hi lisa, thanks for your suggestions, it isnt the end of the world LOL

i gave a friend of mine the HTML for that page, he is going to split the page into three seperate sections , that might work, i will see

thanks again

Later:- I tried the three separate smaller files, sadly exactly the same result.
