Using iframes in emails

Hi, I would like to know how I can embed an iframe into my emails?  

 

I use this in a block using the html option but it doesn't save:

 

<iframe src="my url" style="border:0px #ffffff none;" name="optionalname" scrolling="yes" frameborder="1" marginheight="0px" marginwidth="0px" height="1400px" width="550px" allowfullscreen></iframe>

 

I was told by support that you need to edit the code to make it work in CC.  Has anyone had any success with doing this?

 

Thanks for your help

@AndrewT60  Hi Andrew!

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Constant Contact Community.  I’d be happy to assist you today.

 

Our templates don’t support inserted iFrame code.  If you create your own custom code emails, iFrames are supported in our Advanced Editor, but are usually stripped out by the email client.  Guidelines for custom code emails can be found at this link if you would like to learn more about it.  Creating a custom code email in your account is a quick process once you have the code created!

 

If you have any further questions please feel free to reach out to us here. We are always happy to assist you in any way we can!

Re: Using iframes in emails

Does the same apply for inserting iframe into a website?? The inline and universal codes don't seem to be working with Webydo. Wasn't sure if there's another way of inserting the sign up form into a website?

Hello @SSUSA,

 

That's an excellent question!  We don't have enough information on that webservice to give you exact installation instructions for the inline or pop-up sign-up forms.  If you're using an iframe on their site though, then you should be able to link that iframe back to one of our landing-page sign-up forms.  Once you've created that landing page, you'll be provided with a URL that you can use to access that form.  The same URL 'should' work with your iframes, though it's not a process that we generally recommend.  It may be best to contact your web-host directly, and see if they can give any insight on why the universal code isn't working, or how best to link to that landing page URL.
