How do I fix iFrame width stopping at a small amount?


When I add the iFrame macro to a Page, and then insert my iFrame, I cannot seem to increase the width past a small amount. I can increase the height to infinity, every time I increase the height, the iFrame gets taller. However, the width stops after a small amount and will not expand any more. I have tried with multiple iFrame macros and the result is the same every time. Because of this, my iFrames are squished and too skinny.

Any ideas?

Thank you for your time.

@Chris Horn welcome to Confluence Cloud.

There are two macros that support iframe.



The /iframe has many more options for sizing. The /html macro will try to fit to size, but is generally less smooth.

Which are you using?

Hi @Andy Gladstone,

Thank you for responding to my question. I am using the /iframe macro that I access by clicking "insert" and searching for iframe. I actually do not see anything for html - I think this has to be enabled via admin settings? That may be an option for me as well if the safety concerns aren't too great.

But I digress, this issue is about the iframe macro. I am able to adjust the height to my heart's content but width stops after a small amount, no matter what value I insert into the width field.

Hi @Andy Gladstone , any additional tips or info?
