Responsive Iframe Options

Default Action

The default action is used for all iframes that are not covered by a specific exception.

Based on the default option, input boxes are shown that allow you to easily set exceptions. The exceptions work on an iframe's source URL.

Keep Aspect Ratio

If selected, iframes will keep their aspect ratio intact while being scaled, that means both width & height will be updated keeping their ratio as is.

Fit Width Only

If selected, only the width of iframes will be scaled, the set height will be kept as is.


If selected, iframes will be ignored and no action will be applied.

HINT: This option is useful in case you like to set actions specifically only (see below).


...But Keep Aspect Ratio For...

List of source URLs of iframes that should keep their aspect ration while being scaled, given one by line.

Wildcards may be used as well. See Using Wildcards below.

This input box is shown only if "Fit Width Only" or "Ignore" is selected as a default action.

...But Fit Width Only For...

List source URLs of iframes that should be scaled in width only, given one by line.

Wildcards may be used as well. See Using Wildcards below.

This input box is shown only if "Keep Aspect Ratio" or "Ignore" is selected as a default action.

...But Ignore...

List of source URLs of iframes that should be ignored and kept as is.

Wildcards may be used as well. See Using Wildcards below.

This input box is shown only if "Keep Aspect Ratio" or "Fit Width Only" is selected as a default action.

After you enabled the plugin, Aimy Responsive Iframes will automatically take care of scaling all iframes as configured turning them responsive in nearly no time. No further action required!

Using Wildcards

To easily describe not only single source URLs but ranges as well, Aimy Responsive Iframes allows you to use wildcards in the input boxes of the "...But Keep Aspect Ratio For...", "...But Fit Width Only..." and "...But Ignore..." options.

That is, you can use the special character * (asterisk/star) as a wildcard for zero or more characters.

Each wildcard expression is evaluated against the source URLs of the iframes embedded on your website.


You selected "Fit Width Only" as a Default Action but like to keep the aspect ratio of all iframes that embed YouTube® videos. To accomplish this, enter a wildcard expression describing the source URLs in the "...But Keep Aspect Ratio For..." input box:



Aimy Responsive Iframes detects the available width for each iframe and takes care of scaling it accordingly. To accomplish this task, the extension uses its own JavaScript library.

Please note that all iframes are required to initially contain a width and height attribute. Iframes that do not provide those attributes will be ignored.
