This post is about embedding a page into the forums which is tricky sometimes...

The easiest way to embed a page in a content box is to add the "Embedded Page" type of content box, edit the content and then paste in the link. But, this will show only the embedded page.

If you want to have additional comments or text outside the embedded page but still inside the content box, then you'll need to use what Sidarian posted:
Lookie it's an embedded page!!
<iframesrc="URL TO PAGE"width="300" height="500" frameborder="0" marginheight="0"marginwidth="0">Loading...</iframe>

Replace the text in green with your message/comments, the URL in orange and adjust the frame size with the numbers in red.

Heh. I had been using "Free Form" boxes for so long, I forgot there were other types! *DOH*

Thanks, Mottie!

Is it possible to embed my Roster in a window like this? Rosters tend to get quite long and im using the WoW integrated one right now.

You can limit the size of your roster by adding this CSS...
#ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ctl01_RadAjaxPanel1 { height:400px; overflow:auto;}
NOTE: The "00" and/or "01" in the CSS could be different depending on if you've added or removed the roster from your site. If you add this CSS and it doesn't work, then "view source" of the Roster page and search for "RadAjaxPanel", and you should find a line like this:
<div id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ctl01_RadAjaxPanel1" class="ContentBoxBody" style="width:100%;">
Take the ID from that line and replace the ID in the CSS (in blue & red).

Works perfectly Mottie. You da man.

As I'm sure your getting tired of me, but how do you change the color of that scroll bar?

ive tried adding the css to your line but it didnt do anything and if i add it to body {} it changes the whole page.

scrollbar-base-color: #ac9f6f;

Scrollbar CSS only works for IE... I don't think any other browser supports it.

Hey Avandius!

I'm not sure what you want to do with a tradeskill window, but it's tied to your web site, so you can't embed a page form another site and have the info you want.

Although, embedding a content box from your own site is possible, but problematic. I only way I can think of doing this would be to add a new tab to your site and remove all the box border style. Then point the embedded page there.
