PDF Embed

This plugin is available for accounts with Plus, Silver, Gold, and Platinum plans.

PDF Embed

PDF Embed renders PDFs uploaded as files for an item directly on the item’s public page, allowing users to read the document without needing to click on the file links. Installing the plugin displays the viewer on any page that contains a PDF.

There are two configuration settings for the plugin. The first is the height, which will determine how tall the viewer for the PDF will be on your page. The second allows you to choose how the PDFs are rendered on the page:

PDF options

  • Object uses the browser’s native PDF viewer or plugins like Adobe Reader.
  • PDF.js uses a cross-browser JavaScript-based PDF viewer.

Object will work for most users. JavaScript will require newer technology on the user’s end, but may provide more coverage of those users.
