Hi
I have used and adapted the Iframe code from the tutorials to link to an article but the article loads with much of the front end images and content loaded also...like a mobile site.  Is it possible to have JUST the article pop up in an iframe or do I need a 3rd party pop up...like jcepopup?

code:
<td align="left" valign="top"><a href="index.php?option=com_content&amp;view=article&amp;id=65:diz-watson&amp;catid=23:other-artists&amp;Itemid=101" rel="width:790,height:600,[iframe]" id="mb28" class="s5mb" title="Diz Watson">Diz Watson[/url]</td>
Thanks

Hello,

I am not entirely sure what you are trying to do, but you can't call just an article on a page. An article always called within the template's body, so it will adapt all the default features of the template on the page, ie: menu, module positions, css sheets, etc. I don't know of any way to call just an article outside of the template.

I am trying to have a popup that contains an article when a link on another article page is clicked - rather than the article open the same or new window.  I have done this before using JCE MediaBox Popup.  Can this be done using iframe rather than installing  the JCE Media Box module (or similar)
Thanks

Hello,

I'm sorry I am not sure, that is not something that I have every done before. There's nothing built into the template that would allow for that, so it would have to be some kind of third party extension.

Hi
The iframe/html example on the Oasis demo site (http://www.shape5.com/demo/index.php?oasis) opens an iframe with the firebug site...is it not possible to load a specific article into this iframe?
this is the code on the demo site...rather than to a web site, cannot it not link to an article?

<a href="http://www.getfirebug.com" rel="width:790,height:600,[iframe]" id="mb28" class="s5mb"
title="http://getfirebug.com/">iFrame/HTML Example - CLICK ME[/url] <div class="s5_multibox
mb28">getfirebug.com</div>

Reason: We have a music festival site with an events schedule it would be useful to have a pop up when an artists name is clicked on rather open that article in the same (or new) window.
Thanks

Hello,

Our entire demo is an iframe, which loads specific installations in the window.

I'm sorry you cannot call just an article in an iframe, I am not aware of any way to do that. The closest you can do is load entire url/site in an iframe which as I said above will load the entire template, it's not just isolate down to a specific article's text by itself.

Multibox will work with an iframe, but again you can't call just an article, it will load the entire template structure if you call a url on your site.
