Get Framed

If you’ve got your own domain and want to use it for your Shapeways Shop, you might think you’re out of luck. But, you’re not–because although we don’t have an official feature to support this use, there is a small hack that several shops have implemented already.

Just create a frameset on a webpage hosted at your domain, and place your shop inside. I’ve already stumbled across two clever shops doing this:

The HTML on your domain should skip the body tag entirely, and use a frameset tag instead. It will look something like this:

<frameset rows=”100%,*” border=”0″>
<frame src=”http://www.shapeways.com/shops/yourshopname” frameborder=”0″ />
<frame frameborder=”0″ noresize />
</frameset>

If your html is a little rusty or you weren’t around during the height of the frame era (late 1990s, if I recall), just view the source on one of the above pages, and you’ll find the code you need.

    People may want to try

    That should read: People may want to try *iframe* as well. It might lead to better results.

    Good suggestion, Mark. An iframe could be used to dress it up a bit!
