A block for ftw.simplelayout

Project Description


This package is an addon for ftw.simplelayout. Please make sure you already installed ftw.simplelayout on your plone site before installing this addon.

ftw.iframeblock privides a block for ftw.simplelayout, which renders a iframe using iframe-resizer. Read the setup instructions of iframeresizer carefully: you need an implementation on both domains.

Linking to sub pages

When integrating other websites in iframes and indexing those contents in the search, we want to be able to link from the search to a specific iframed sub-page.

In order to make this possible we need to be able to pass the requested sub-page as GET request param.

For security reason, the origin of both URLs must be the same, otherwise the configured startpage is loaded.


  • http://localhost:8080/Plone/the-page?i=
  • http://localhost:8080/Plone/the-page?i_iframeblock2=


Runs with Plone 4.3.x.
