- Marginheight – sets the vertical margin space between the iFrame and its container.
Step 5: Publish the iFrame
Finally, after creating and editing the iFrame attributes, you can publish the iFrame by clicking the “publish” button to make it visible to the public.
Step 6: Test Your iFrame
It’s important to test your iFrame to ensure it’s working correctly. Click “Preview,” and ensure the iFrame appears and functions correctly. If it’s not working correctly, check that your attributes are correctly adjusted, and the iFrame code is entered correctly.
