Aurora has limited support for the use of iframes. For security reasons, ITS must be cautious in what domains to trust not to infect the large number of websites that use Aurora. Aurora permits the use of iframes from sources such as domains, Facebook, Youtube, Prezi, and more. If you would like to request a new iframe URL please send an email to

Using IFrames

IFrames must be entered in the text editor, not the visual editor. Pasting an iFrame into the visual editor will do nothing but display a lot of raw HTML code on your webpage.

This is an example iFrame code, taken from the Google Maps iFrame shown below:

<iframe src=",+Fairfield+Way,+Storrs,+CT&aq=0&oq=homer+&sll=41.782143,-72.236374&sspn=0.293388,0.600128&ie=UTF8&hq=Homer+Babbidge+Library,&hnear=Fairfield+Way,+Storrs,+Connecticut&ll=41.806595,-72.251727&spn=0.006295,0.006295&t=m&output=embed" width="100%" height="250" frameborder="0"></iframe>

<small><a style="color: #0000ff;text-align: left" href=",+Fairfield+Way,+Storrs,+CT&aq=0&oq=homer+&sll=41.782143,-72.236374&sspn=0.293388,0.600128&ie=UTF8&hq=Homer+Babbidge+Library,&hnear=Fairfield+Way,+Storrs,+Connecticut&ll=41.806595,-72.251727&spn=0.006295,0.006295&t=m">View Larger Map</a></small>
