Get Current URL in an iFrame ?


Recommended Posts


I need to get current url on a page in an iFrame.

The code must be in the iFrame and get current url of the parent page.


I tried with {$smarty.server.HTTP_HOST}{$smarty.server.REQUEST_URI} but it gives me the url of iFrame and not the parent page URL.

Any ideas ?

Thanks a lot and sorry for my English ...

My guess would the referrer. So probably something like {$smarty.server.HTTP_REFERER} .

Otherwise I am not sure whether this is possible at all. You could check by printing out the $_SERVER and $GLOBALS variables in the iframe and look what they contain.

Of course there is always the option to give the string that calls the iframe content an extra argument that tells you who made the call.
