Yes it work fine! Happy that it is it for you also! Look that the help page has been updated several times after, to add hints on it in case something goes wrong on setting up and the iframe do not display https://www.axew3.com/w3/2022/02/the-aw ... shortcode/

I finally decided to release it as free, while maybe (maybe not for the moment) new coming features will be added in the way i mentioned (and removed).

About phpBB iframed template shortcode:
there are ways it can be used may not expected.
If you add it without adding the page param, and you have setup into phpBB overall_header.html the page-forum, pushed links are these of page forum. So if you refresh by browser you will be redirected to page-forum, instead of the same page where the shortcode applied.
More: if you comment into overall_header.html js added code this line:

Code: Select all

document.location.replace(href0);

Code: Select all

//document.location.replace(href0);
when phpBB forum is accessed via direct link, will load the real phpBB url and not the wp page.

More coming: let suppose that the shortcode iframe add a param load_default_phpBB_page
it could be used to open the iframed phpBB, into a specific topic/post, a forum etc.

The V5 code require in the while immediate fix for bots.
Nothing exceptional but
I noted that the overall_footer.html js code is not wrapped into this:

Code: Select all

<!-- IF not S_IS_BOT -->
.....
<!-- ENDIF -->
so overall_footer.html code become for example:

Code: Select all

<!-- IF not S_IS_BOT -->
<script type="text/javascript">
// START MANDATORY CHANGES
document.domain = 'axew3.com';
..... all the code ...... until last line
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://www.axew3.com/w3/forums/iframeResizer.contentWindow.min.js" defer></script>
<!-- ENDIF -->

so the V5 snippet on V5 procedure will be right now updated to fix this.

The phpBB iframe shortcode, when/if placed into home, then you click into an iframe link, go to push into address bar the home-placehoder if the shortcode has been set into home with this param.
but if i use the shortcode with only the gap param:

Code: Select all

[w3allphpbbiframe wp_page_iframe_top_gap="100"]
and the forum-page exist because has been created, then the code will push this into the url.
The result is the actual into this site home. But if the page-forum is not set, this would return an url not found.
So due to this wrong behavior when/if home-placehoder is set for the home (and the forum-page has not been created/built), so when browser refresh due to a click into reload button on browser, it will return page not found, the problem has been fixed just avoiding the url push on browser when/if shortcode placed into home page. If in homepage, the push will not happen.
The shortcode will add also the param phpbb_default_url that allow to load phpBB by default, pointing to something specific like a specific forum or topic, so for example:

Code: Select all

[w3allphpbbiframe wp_page_name="inhomepage-phpbbiframe" wp_page_iframe_top_gap="100" phpbb_default_url="https://localhost/phpbb33/viewforum.php?f=3"]
will open by default the iframe with a top gap of 100, of a shortcode placed into home, that will open by default a forum ID3.
The awesome will be more awesome just adding a param.
So that it will be possible to show any content into different pages or posts, focusing the "iframe landing" on each, into what more like.

It will be updated on repository as soon, i'll notify as done.
