I have a perl script.. that gets shown inside an iframe.
Google was indexing the script.. and not the page..
So what I did.. was in my .htaccess file exclude access directly to the script...
That is... you can only see the script if you access the page that includes it.
So this works fine and for the first month or so I didn't see any 403 errors being generated by the problem.
Recently all Iphone and Ipad users are being blocked from seeing the script being generated in the Iframe.
Droid users don't appear to be having this problem. I tested with my phone and tablet.
I don't know if the Iphone and Ipads have cached my page and calling it from the phone in place of the actual page ?
I don't know if the Iphone and Ipad have this problem when not viewing in "Desktop" mode (not sure even if that's available for Apple users) ?
I saw a bit of html5 code called sandbox that has an attribute called sandbox and "allow-scripts"...
Maybe a fix ?
Obviously I don't have an Apple device otherwise I would have caught this immediately.
I tested the site with a web based mobile comparability for Iphone and Ipad... and saw no errors... but that might just be because the web based site is not "pure" at accessing my site as a "real" Apple product would and is only testing for mobile responsiveness.
I am going to go to my local computer store and try viewing my site on an Ipad or what ever Apple device they have...
But I fear I may get the same result.
Any thoughts or ideas from knowledgeable people ?
This is the thread where I originally set my .htaccess file so you may see what I am doing..
