    Our site has several external links that we wind up needing to reference from menus.  Almost always this is ok when creating an external page type as most links will render inside the frame - even if it looks weird or behaves a little oddly.  However, every once and a while we have a link to a site that "sniffs" for frame subordination and the link will "force to top".  Of course when it does that, it wreaks havoc on the Sitefinity Admin site and the users have a terrible time trying to edit the page status.  Most of the time, they just don't know what's happening.  Currently, we are using v3.0.  Is this a scenario that has been addressed in v3.2 or is there a way to "turn off" the external page rendering?

    Hi Allen,

    External page rendering is made by design and is not considered as an issue which should be addressed. However, we will log this as a feature request - to make external page rendering optional.

    For the clients who do not need this functionality, there is a possible workaround but its logic would be a bit complicated. You can check the PageViewer template stored in ~/YourProject/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/Pages/ which is used for page preview. We use iframe for visualizing it. If you can modify the code to verify whether the page is external for your domain, you should be able to prevent external pages from displaying. This is how only pages that are on localhost will be previewed. If you have the needed resource you can try modifying the PageViewer.ascx to fit your requirements.

    However, please have in mind that we have not tested this scenario.

    Hope the provided information is helpful.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
