    Is it legal so long as im not doing something shady like making them sign up with credit card detials or give info they werent aware of?

    i simply want to ifram to avoid getting blocked by facebook, so the actual page they see is just the same.

    and will it get caught by web broswers causing some potential punters to click away in fear?

    1. No, it's not illegal.
    2. No browsers will not flag an iframe. (provided the destination is virus free)

    Agree with demon.

    I'll also add that traditionally (ha, I sound like an expert, right??) :) iframes were a big NO. They did not get indexed and older browsers sometimes choked. However, I worked on a site recently that required iframing - yes, required it - and the pages are indexing quite nicely and I've heard that iframed pages even get indexed now. Would like to know that answer for sure. But that's what I've heard recently.

    I have iframe forms on a number of my wordpress pages and they all rank highly and have done for almost 6 years.
