  • Apply responsive iframe
    Create a post like you normally would and then click the + icon displayed to Add block. Find Responsive iframes and click it.
    By default your current website will be displayed in the iframe.

  • Block Settings
    Site Address – The url address of the website you want to iframe
    Width – This represents the actual width you want to display from the iframed website.
    Height – This represents the actual height you want to display from the iframed website.
    Scrollbar – Displays a scroll bar if the height,and width are smaller than the iframe website.
    Border – Dislays a default border around the iframe element.
    Scale – This will change the max-width percentage of the iframe’s parent element, it will allow the element to be scaled by size.
    Additional CSS – Any additional CSS will be applied to the iframe’s parent element. Use this to provide some additional styling.

  • BreakPoints
    Available under advanced settings, and will let you specify the width of the site to display depending on the width of the device.
    Multiple breakpoints can be used. The lowest BreakPoint Width will take effect over any higher BreakPoint Widths when the screen device is below or at its BreakPoint Width.
    Example Breakpoint 1 250px, Breakpoint 2 350px. A device with a screen width of 250px will only trigger Breakpoint 1. ScreenWidth 251px, will only trigger BreakPoint 2.
    Name – The name you wish to give the breakpoint
    BreakPoint Width – At and below this width, this breakpoint is triggered.
    Site Width – This is the width of the website to display when the breakpoint is triggered


  • Example of New York Times in an iframe.
  • The iframe in the website, demonstrating from a mobile viewpoint.

This plugin provides 2 blocks.

  • Responsive iframes
  • Responsive iframe


How do I access the block settings

In the page where you create a post, in the top right corner next to update/publish is a cog wheel that allows you to edit block settings.

In the editor I can’t click on the iframe

Click directly underneath the iframe element, you want to select the block so you can edit it.
Top ToolBar on the page also has three horizontal lines that let you select your blocks in the editor.

What can I stylize without breaking the iframe

Leave the iframe element largly alone, focus css on the parent div element.
Do not modify the height on the div element.

I tried so many different plugins and they were so convoluted. I have an iframe that I want to embed a page from another domain (ie cross-domain iframe) and all of the 8 other plugins I downloaded wanted me to modify the source file that I wanted to embed and/or mess with embed codes in wordpress, or a bunch of other mess. I installed this plugin, clicked the + sign and added the responsive block, pasted my url and the site came up instantly and is responsive in all views. I haven’t even had to touch the options which the other plugins want to charge for. IT JUST WORKS! Thanks so much. You saved me so much time on my workflow because for each video I create on my off-site video hosting place, I have to embed those html files into each wordpress page/post (probably will be over 200 videos) and you just made that a one click & paste process. All the best.
