View Full Version : Deep linking to an iframe?

12-26-2009, 09:29 AM
I have an e-commerce shop that calls up product content from the drop-shipper's url inside an iframe. This works well for the look and feel and functionality of the site, but I'm now ready to start sending links to specific products to friends, blogging products and making posts on facebook, etc. I would like to be able to send out links to specific states of the site, in other words, I would like to be able to send a link to someone that pulls up the page and goes directly to the desired product showing in the iframe. Since calling up just the website url (i.e. http://www.katabasis-apparel.com) loads the site in its initial state, how should I formulate the link?

as far as i know you in your case you will have to remove the iframe and show the content as normal site.

after this you can pass your product id in the url like


then you will be able to send this url to your whom you want.

I think at this point that would involve some serious restructuring of the site. I might be up to this at some point, but not just yet. I'll wait to see if anyone out there has any idea how to do the deep linking while keeping the iframe.

If not, I suppose I will just have my links direct to the home page; the site is relatively simple and should be clear enough about how to get to specific products. I just want to ensure it's really stupidly easy to enable customers to do what they want.

making a standard site without iframe is good for search engines also.
