Displaying a visual force page as a home page component

I know I can build a dashboard with my VF page and display the dashboard snapshot on the home tab but it is not scalable and my VF page is a list which grows.

 

So how can I display my VF page on the home tab as a component? Do I have to build an html component and use the iframe tag? I tried that just now and it basically worked but it shows a complete inline salesforce window. So its the Opportunities tab (the tabstyle of the VF page) within the home tab, both with all sets of tabs and links. How can i just display the page without the tabs and sidebar?

I don't think there is any other way possible apart from the html and iframe way.

I can't imagine that anybody is actually using that though as it frames an entire SF window rather than just the core page.

Yeah, the inability to put a VF page simply into the home is one of the few significant flaws in VF deployment that hinder its usability.

Although is not a perfect solution but you can always add a VF page and remove both the header and the sidebar.

 

 

<apex:page controller="myController" showHeader="false" sidebar="false">
    <apex:pageBlock title="myTitle">
         <h1>hello world!</h1>       
    </apex:pageBlock>
</apex:page>
