#9458 confirmed New Feature

Inline editing does not render iframes

Reported by: Aldo Sarmiento Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: General Version: 4.0
Keywords: Cc:



  1. Must have Iframe button enabled
  2. Must be using inline editing feature

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Click on Iframe button and add an iframe

Result: You will see a placeholder image representing the area the Iframe will be occupying Expected result: You should see the actual iframe being rendered inline.

I understand that for non-inline editing this functionality could make sense. However, with inline editing a user will never be able to see what the finished content will actually look like unless all editors are removed from the page.


In the case above, the user would never be able to see his embedded video unless he logs out and inline editors are not present.

Things to investigate:

  • proper selection of such elements
  • proper handling in plugins like find/replace
  • possible issues with sites included in an iframe that e.g. have JS errors, same with flash content that can also execute JS
  • using context menu on such elements

Status: newconfirmed
Type: BugNew Feature

This is more feature request than a bug thus I'm changing the type.

Few more things to investigate:

  • some protection against invalid URL for iframe may be needed (404 placeholder maybe)
  • some protection against some malicious iframe (iframe with some malicious JS) may also be needed (encoding JS maybe)

Note: this is only v4 issue (inline editing is available in V4 only).
