If there is no room within the doorframe for the Mezuzah to be placed outside of the door then it may be placed within the (right) doorframe on the inside of the door.

What if you have a metal doorway, and cannot access the door post on the outside of the house? would you position the Mezuzah on the inside of that metal door, on the doorpost?

Am I missing something? What if the hinges are on the left side of the door entrance like they are on my apt. door? I haven't put up a Mezuzah because I can't afford one!...ever..

RE: Mezuzah - location, etc.
According to Ashkenazi tradition, the Mezuzah is placed on an angle with the top part facing inward. This is because there is a disagreement whether it is to be affixed upright or on its side. As a compromise, it is placed on a slant. The Sepharadic custom is, however, to position it upright.

Mezuzah - location, etc.
I saw and listen to the Rabbi's comments on the proper location for the "MEZUZAH" - What is missing however, is a comment on the angle, the correct angle of the "MEZUZAH", and why it would be done in such way.
