Hey all,

Not sure how many of you do social media, etc, but recently Facebook has made a change where iframes don’t allow dynamic content. That means that any of my tabs that have Flash content, or an embedded website, don’t actually work anymore. The tabs using Flash don’t display anything. Some people I’m doing sites for were using ecommerce and now all of a sudden nothing works.

Am I using the wrong iFrame app? Is there another that still supports dynamic content (being able to browse a site within an iframe).

Any help appreciated.

Thanks, Chad

Sounds strange as we have many apps running as responsive external websites to make them mobile accessible and they are all fine…admittedly none with flash.

I work very closely with Facebook and have heard nothing about these changes recently. The whole point of them enforcing SSL on apps not so long ago was down to security of running iframes.

Try this as it might help http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/hh563496.aspx also it is old but still relevant where flash is being used http://m.facebook.com/notes/hyperarts-web-design/facebook-secure-browsing-https-iframe-tabs-mixed-content-warnings/10150223945345844

One of my suspicions was that the content wasn’t working due to a lack of Secure Hosting for my content. Do you think that might be it? I’ll have a read through your links. Thanks. : )

Also if anyone has examples of pages still working, like an embedded website that still allows interaction, I’d love to see it.

Thanks.

Okay so all I need to do is be hosting my stuff on a secure server? Nothing else required?

100% if you are not using secure hosting that is your issue. In fairness I am stunned you have managed it get away with it this long as they began rolling out that rule in 2011.
