How to Use the iframe Panel

Learn how to use the iframe panel on Maestro.

The iframe panel is a great way to integrate a third-party or custom panel with no custom development.

The iframe panel has two sections:

  • URL: Simply input the URL of the link you wish to iframe (Note: You must add a name to the video in order to save it)
  • iframe tag: Input the URL, along with the custom iframe tags, which typically start with <iframe>...

You can find the iframe panel option by clicking "Channels" in the admin bar, selecting a channel, then clicking "Panels."

From there, click "Add Panels," click "Catalog," and scroll down to the "iframe" option. You can preview this panel by clicking the eye icon  and click "Use" to add it to your library of panels:

From here, assign an icon, name, URL, and iframe tag. You can also disable this content on mobile embedded systems by toggling it on.

Note: Not all sites allow embeds on third party websites. If you add a link and get a grey sad face, this is likely the issue:

The way to resolve this is to reach out to the parent URL (i.e the link you are trying to embed) and see if they can whitelist your live domain to allow the embed to display.

Maestro does not have control over whether an iframe URL displays or how it operates within the panel.
