Is it possible to target outside of an iframe?

Recommended Posts

Hi, so I have an iframe that has links in it. I want the links to target the appropriate page and when the page is done executing, instead of redirecting inside the iframe and having the page in the iframe change, I want the parent page to refresh.

					index.php <---------------------------- page is done executing, redirect the actual page. Not the iframe
					    |                                                                      |
					    v		                                                           |
					 iframe  -----> links inside the iframes are clicked ---> actions with the links are done

This is how I want it to perform. Can this be done?

I am pretty sure that this is not possible for safety reasons. 

Actually, it is possible. I solved my problem by appending the target="_parent" to the links inside the iframe. I controll both iframe and index.php so what about saftey reasons again?
