JavaScript : How to know if current window is the ‘Parent’ or ‘Child’

You cannot do this with PHP; it’s a server side language, not a client side. To detect if you’re in the top level window, you need to do this:

if( == window.self) {
    // Top level window
} else {
    // Not top level. An iframe, popup or something
