How To Dynamic iFrame URL In Elementor

Last updated on June 6, 2021 by

In this tutorial, we will see how to dynamic the iframe URL in Elementor. Sometimes, we need to dynamic the iframe in the page, post, or custom post type. Let’s just jump into it.

Steps To Make Dynamic Iframe In Elementor

Before diving into the steps, let’s assume that we have a Services custom post type just like posts or page in our WordPress install.

Now, we want to dynamic the iframe in each single service page using Elementor.

  1. At the very first, we need to add a new custom field into our Services custom post type. You can add it as per your requirement.

    There are different ways to add the custom fields in WordPress but to make it easy, we are using the Advanced Custom Field plugin to create the custom field in WordPress.
  2. First, install the Advanced Custom Field plugin, and to create a new custom field go to the Custom Fields -> Add New
  3. Add custom fields title and then add the new custom field by pressing the Add Field button. After that, add Field Label (“iFrame URL” in our case) and Choose the Field Type to Text input just like the below screenshots.

  1. Then assign the created custom fields to the page, post, or custom post type as shown below screenshot. In our case, we need to assign it to the Services custom post type.

  1. Let’s add a dummy URL into our newly created field. To do that navigate to the assigned page or post, in our case Services -> Add New or Edit and add any URL you want to show as an iFrame then save the post or page.

  1. Now, go to the Elementor editor on your particular page or Single post template, in our case we need to edit the Single Service page Elementor template. You can create your own by Templates > Add New

    After that drop & drop the Text Editor widget and click on Dynamic Tags and select ACF Field option as shown in the following screenshot.

  1. It will automatically close the select box but click again on it and in Key option select the ACF field that we created in the previous step, in our case we have created the iFrame URL field so select that as shown in the below screenshot.

  1. Now, we are very near to end of this tutorial, click on Advanced accordion and you will see the before, after and callback option.

    We now need to divide our iframe code into two parts. Let’s assume our iframe code looks like below:
<iframe width="900" height="506" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/9xwazD5SyVg" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>
  1. The first part will be <iframe width="900" height="506" src=" and need to be inserted into the before option.
  2. And the second part will be (including double quotation) " title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> and needs to be inserted into the after option.
place iframe code in before and after option in elementor
  1. This way our URL will be placed between the before and after option, thus our iFrame will be completed with the dynamic URL in Elementor.

  1. Hello!

    I am building a website for vacation rental management. The content of this article is just what I needed to be able to make the iframe for which the booking calendar is included on the web dynamic. The problem is that I can’t get it to work.

    I have done the tutorial several times, even using the example you show and for some reason elementor does not show me the content, it only shows text.

    Do you know why this can happen?
