I have a website on WordPress and I am trying to add a Iframe on its website. I have done similar sort of thing on two other websites previously without any issue..

Here is the website in question: http://sharingspider.com/nfs/

However, this time I am facing some permission related issue. I can view the Iframe only after logging in. Permission set are 777 for uploads folder where I have my iframe uploaded. I can access Iframe URL directly (http://sharingspider.com/nfs/wp-content/uploads/slider/slider.htm)

Demo ID : temp password: password

use the above username and password to see the issue Could someone share any insight on why this is happening with this particular site?

thanks in advance, Aashish

This is not going to be answerable without the relevant code. WordPress login status should not effect how filesystem permissions work though. – s_ha_dum Feb 4 '13 at 14:40

No. I don't have to to debug your site for free. Plus, that is a very, very, very bad idea. You don't know me. I could do all kind of horrible things to your site. Never give out that information on the web. .. especially when you are talking about (what looks like) a commercial site !!! – s_ha_dum Feb 4 '13 at 15:11

The only reason I can imagine that happening is if the iframe is wrapped in a check to see if the user is logged in. As @s_ha_dum said, WordPress login isn't tied to directory permissions in any way, so just make sure that when the iframe is displayed in the theme it isn't inside any is_user_logged_in() or current_user_can() checks. Just a hunch. It's impossible to know for sure without code.
