I am currently using a DNN 4.9.5 site with IFrame 4.4.0. I have never been able to get the IFrame to function, it shows a white/blank screen no matter what settings I choose. The website I am linking to is:

It would be greatly appreciated if anyone could help. I would really love to use this feature but have never been able to get the module to work.

Am I doing something wrong? Is the module broken? Insight would be great.

I am pretty sure you need to downgrade your IFrame module version - I think to version 3.x.x

I deleted the IFrame v. 4.4.0 and reinstalled IFrame v. 3.2.2 The module is not displaying and is showing a white area where the iframe should be.

Any ideas on what to do next?

Have you thought about placing the iframe code inside a HTML module.  If placing it in the content area takes out the code then place it in >Module Settings >Header.

Attribute Specifications to Adjust Appearance and Behavior
  >src="(URL of initial iframe content)"
  >name="(name of frame, required for targeting)"
  >longdesc="(link to long description)"
  >width=(frame width, % or pixels)
  >height=(frame height, % or pixels)
  >align=[ top | middle | bottom | left | right | center ] (frame alignment, pick two, use comma)
  >frameborder=[ 1 | 0 ] (frame border, default is 1)
  >marginwidth=(margin width, in pixels)
  >marginheight=(margin height, in pixels)
  >scrolling=[ yes | no | auto ] (ability to scroll)

Here's an example:
<iframe name="inlineframe" src="float.html" frameborder="0" scrolling="auto" width="500" height="180" marginwidth="5" marginheight="5" ></iframe>

1. You could go with Mike's suggestion. That would be a quick and dirty solution

2. At the same time, we can continue trying to get your module to work. In order to do that, we need to get an error that happens when you are loading a page with that module on it. Please check the Site's Log Viewer and copy/paste the error here.
