    Default Transparent background in inline frame?

    I am trying to find the way to have the the transparent background in inline frame. So, the result would be- I can scroll the test and see all the time the picture, what inline frame will be on. Any ideas how to do it?
    Greetings,
    JM

    Hi, if you mean a bit like this one? LINK
    Then put the code below in the "Between head tag" of the html area of the page that will appear in the iframe.

    <style type="text/css">
    body {background-color:transparent}
    </style>

    Good luck.

    Yep! fine at this end. The only down side with iframes is that they are not very SE friendly, & if your using colors for the scroll bar, it wont show in some other browsers.

    Good luck.

    If you only want to have scrolling text and you don't need to many different formattings, use a text area instead, and make it transparent and without border (border = 0)

    This is the 1st I've heard that iframes are not SE friendly! What exactly does that mean?

    but in text area you can delete the text?this is maybe not the best way...

    Se stands for search engines - such as google, yahoo or msn. from what i hear they do not like site that have iframes, but bethers is probably the most knowledgeable person that i know on this subject. drop her a line and she will gladly explain it all to you.

    No, you can't delete anything. If a user deletes it, he only deletes it in his screen. However, to avoid even this case, right click the text are, HTML, and paste in the "Inside Body" the word "readonly". You are done.

    Hi, there are a few downsides with SEs when using an iframe on the page.
    Many of the SEs just read whats on a single page & cant see whats in the iframe page.
    So if you make a page with lots of nice keywords & titles & all of these words are related to text in the iframe, the SEs wont see them & wont give you very good points.
    The other problem is that a page you place in the iframe may get a better ranking than your main page that it was meant to be showing in. So! The SE,s might bring these iframe pages up 1st . But this depends a lot on how pages are set up.

    Good luck.

    Hi, place any images on the main page (parent), & not in the background of the iframe page. Just put text only on the page that will fill the iframe. Then place the iframe over the image.

    OK! Think we have it. Leave everything as it is, but go to the BV page with the iframe on & right click on the iframe itself. Select html properties>inside Tag. Then paste the code below into this area

    allowtransparency="true" background-color="transparent"

    Should all be ok now.

    Sample here I was messing with.

    Try this image! it will load quite a bit quicker if the quality is ok.

    Not sure on that one. The site you was looking at on the last link is quite good for scripts. Might be something there.

    Good luck.
