Wrapper Module - Preventing Frame Busting
A client recent asked us to provide a page from his website to an associates website so that his customers could login and access information on the associate site without leaving his website. The Wrapper module or component that form part of the Joomla! 1.5 package seemed to be an ideal solution to his requirement. We configured a link to the associates website using the module and logged in to the test account. On logging out we encountered a problem the logout script on the associate's website cased the page to break out of the iFrame created by the wrapper and the client's user was left stranded on the associate's website. This article describes the simple modifications we made to the Wrapper Module to overcome the problem.
