About six weeks ago, I wrote a post about some issues I was encountering with iframes and cross-domain security. I promised I would write about whatever workaround I decided to use; this post details that workaround.
I’m working on an HTML-based course interface that serves up content in an iframe. I had everything working great until I needed to move the content to one domain while hosting the interface on a different domain (kind of a simplified home-brewed CMS approach). BAM! Cross-domain security issues. Course interface dead in the water.
