Hi Geoff, I've done some researching on this subject and it seems that unfortunately embedding an iframe in WP is not allowed.

Cheers

Hello,

It should work fine and it is possible. See for example the Panoramio's blog (using WordPress) where they embed minimaps for photos: http://www.panoramio.com/blog/

If you "view the HTML source" you'll see that it is the same kind of HTML <iframe> code in wikiloc so it should work fine too.

I don't have a wp blog where to test it but blog editors usually do have an option to write the post in HTML (instead of the usual rich text format). I would try to paste the <iframe> embeddable code on the editor in 'html' mode.

Thanks for the feedback, hopefully we'll find a solution for this issue.

Many thanks for the comment replies, I've tried using the code /code embedding tags in WP but to no avail.
Thanks for the link to panoramio -they do indeed use iframes. I've left them a comment to see if they have a special WP plugin that enables them to do that.

Best Regards

Hi Jordi
Its only fixed in as much as its a known Wordpress bug. I can add your iframe to my post with WP set to Code mode ie No WYSIWYG allowed. I then publish the post immediately.

Hola, a ver si me podéis ayudar. Publico habitualmente en dos foros, y en ninguno de los dos he conseguido publicar los mapas embebidos: las direcciones de los foros:
http://www.caminoslibres.es/index.php?module=pnForum&func=viewtopic&topic=153
y http://www.forospiedrasobrepiedra.com/smf/index.php?topic=5597.msg67577#msg67577

Truji,

Me temo que con los foros lo tienes difícil, por medidas de seguridad casi ningún foro admite que se le meta código embebido y además muchos no te reconocen los carácteres HTML que se necesitan.

Lo que puedes hacer es poner el link a wikiloc y que la gente lo visite si quiere. Es lo que hago yo en los foros que escribo.

Otro truco que empleo, es sacar una foto, una imagen del track en wikiloc, ponerlo en el foro y hacer que esa foro sea el link a wikiloc, así si alguien pincha encima de la foro, se vendrá directamente a wikiloc.

Saludos.

Gracias, esas dos opciones son las que he venido haciendo. Y enhorabuena a los programadores de wikiloc por estos avances
