How to Apply the iFrame Buster Macro

What is the iFrame Buster?

The iFrame Buster is an HTML document that contains a special set of JavaScript code that in conjunction with a specific Player Macro, causes the Player to injects itself directly into the Publisher's site instead of into an iFrame.

Note: This HTML document needs to reside in the Publisher's site.


Why Would I use an iFrame Buster?

It is often that Ad Only Players are delivered through a 3rd party Ad network platform owned by an Ad Vendor. In these cases there's a close relationship between the Ad Vendor and the Publisher regarding what Ad unit is being delivered.

Many times the Ad network delivery script/service will inject the Ad only Player into the Publisher's site via an iFrame. In some cases, these Ad Players require that they reside in the parent domain, and not inside of an iFrame, to function properly.

To overcome this need, of being injected into the actual domain and not into an iFrame, we have developed the iFrame Buster.

  1. Download the following .zip file by clicking here.
