- Menu Title. The title that will display for this menu item.
- URL. Field to enter a URL (web page address). NOTE - use relative path to a web page address on Joomla installation. If your Joomla! website is
http://www.example.com, then use
- Menu Location. The menu that this menu item (choice) will be part of. The menus defined for the site will show in the list box.
Scroll Bar Parameters
- Scroll Bars. (No/Yes/Auto) Whether or not to include horizontal and vertical scroll bars, no or yes. Auto will add the scroll bars automatically when needed because of embedded page size.
- Width. Width of the IFrame Window. Enter in a number of pixels or enter in a percentage (%). For example, "550" means 550 pixels. "75%" means 75% of the page width.
- Height. Height of the IFrame Window. Enter in a number of pixels or enter in a percentage (%). For example, "550" means 550 pixels. "75%" means 75% of the page height.
- Auto height. Automatically set height to height of external page. Note - this will only work if the external page is on the same domain. For example,
http://www.example.comthe external html must be in the
example.comroot file structure. Sub domains will not work, as a sub domain is considered a separate domain.
- Auto add. Automatically prefix web address with http://. This feature will automatically detect and not prefix a URL with http:// or https:// already used in the URL.
