Introduction

You can embed your Feature Update board into your own website. This is achieved by using an HTML iframe.

You’ll either need to be a web developer - or have an access to one - to do this.

For security reasons, by default your board won’t work if embedded in an iframe. You’ll need to specifically enable this for your board.

Enabling iframe embedding

We disable iframe embedding by default. That’s because there is a security risk from a technique called “clickjacking”. You can read more about clickjacking on Wikipedia.

You can safely enable iframe embedding by telling Feature Upvote the domain name of your site.

Go to your Feature Upvote dashboard.

Select ‘Customize’.

Select ‘Security’

  • Enable the checkbox labelled “Allow product board to be embedded in HTML <iframe> tags”
  • Put the domain of your website site in the “Domains allowed to embed product board” field
  • Click “Save”

Explanation for web developers: Feature Upvote uses this information to add an appropriate Content-Security-Policy HTTP header to your board. Modern web browsers look for this header, and use it to make sure your board can’t be embedded in websites outside of your control.
