Open an External Page inside Your Joomla!

Open an External Page inside Your Joomla!

There is a Wrapper function in Joomla! which can let you open an external page inside your joomla page. This function is quite helpful. I will show you how to doing it.

Step 1. Go to your Admin page=>Menu=>Main Menu=>New=>Choose Wrapper and Click Next open external page inside joomla 01

Step 2. Now you are in wrapper menu setting
open external page inside joomla 02


  • Name: Your main menu name
  • Wrapper Links: Put your external page URL here
  • Menu Image: Leave it blank(This function's not working)
  • Page Class Suffix: Just leave it blank. (This field can contain a suffix that is to be applied to the CSS classes of this page.)
  • Back Button: Show or Hide or Use Grobal
  • Page Title: Hide or Show your page title. (It will show on top of main body.)
  • Page Title: Put your page title here
  • Scroll Bars: I recommended you choose auto
  • Width: Type in a value for the width of the Wrapper window.
  • Hight: Type in a value for the height of the Wrapper window.
  • Auto Hight: Select whether Joomla! sets the height of the Wrapper page to match the original dimensions of the external web page it is displaying.
  • Auto Add: This feature is just to add http:// when you forget to type complete URL inWrapper Links: field (i.e. if you type only www.external page.com)

Finish. After you complete your setting then click save.
