Frames and embed elements

The use of frames and other embedded content on the University website is strongly discouraged.

By default, the following HTML elements are blocked on the University network; this is for security reasons.

  • <applet>
  • <embed>
  • <frame>
  • <iframe>
  • <object>

This list is not exclusive, other elements that embed content on a webpage may also be blocked.

Where possible, other techniques should be found to include related content on a webpage. If you would like to discuss possible alternatives to the use of these embedded elements, please email and mark it FAO digital communications.

If you must include embedded content please contact IT Services, email and mark it FAO ITS systems, to request that the source URI be added to the exceptions list.
