PDF Embedder

外掛說明

Upload PDFs and embed them straight into your site – just like adding images! PDFs will be automatically sized to their natural size and shape (or just fill the width available if they are too big). Optionally, you can specify a width and the correct height will be calculated automatically. The shape will be recalculated whenever the page is resized by the user.

The plugin has a unique method for embedding PDFs, using Javascript only, and not using iframes or third-party services. This gives a lot of flexibility over the appearance of your document.

The free viewer currently has Next/Prev buttons to page through the document, and zoom buttons.

PDFs are embedded within your existing WordPress pages so we have full control over appearance, and all Javascript and other files are served by your own server (not by Google or any other third-party who may not be able to guarantee their own reliability).

Even if other plugins use similar technology, they will insert the PDF itself into an ‘iframe’ which means they do not get the flexibility over sizing.

There is no button for users to download the PDF in the free version of the plugin, but this is available in the Premium versions along with other extra features.
Hyperlinks in your PDF will only be clickable in the Premium versions.

Usage

Once installed and Activated, click Add Media from any page or post, just like adding an image, but drag and drop a PDF file instead.

When you insert into your post, it will appear in the editor as a ‘shortcode’ as follows:

[pdf-embedder url=’https://mysite.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Plan-Summary.pdf’]

You can change the default appearance – e.g. width, and toolbar position/appearance through Settings -> PDF Embedder.

To override your site-wide defaults on an individual embed, see the Plugin Instructions for information about sizing options plus other ways to customize the shortcodes.

Extra Premium Features

Features available in the Premium versions:

  • Download button in the toolbar
  • Continuous scroll between pages
  • Hyperlinks are fully functional
  • Full screen mode
  • Edit page number to jump straight to page
  • Track number of downloads and views
  • Removes wp-pdf.com attribution from the toolbar
  • Mobile-friendly
  • Secure option – difficult to download original PDF

See wp-pdf.com for details!

使用 PDF Embedder Premium 進行適合行動裝置的文件嵌入

The free version of the plugin should work on most mobile browsers, but it will be cumbersome for users with small screens – it is difficult to position the document entirely within the screen, and your users’ fingers may catch the entire browser page when they’re trying only to move about the document…

Our PDF Embedder Premium plugin solves this problem with an intelligent ‘full screen’ mode.
When the document is smaller than a certain width, the document displays only as a ‘thumbnail’ with a large ‘View in Full Screen’ button for the user to click when they want to study your document.
This opens up the document so it has the full focus of the mobile browser, and the user can move about the document without hitting other parts of the web page by mistake. Click Exit to return to the regular web page.

使用者還可以在 PDF 檔案頁面間透過觸擊和滑動以進行翻頁,這比按 [下一頁]/[上一頁] 按鈕更容易完成。

See our website wp-pdf.com for more details and purchase options.

Protect your PDFs with our secure premium version

Our PDF Embedder Premium Secure plugin provides the same simple but elegant viewer as the premium version, with the added protection that it is difficult for users to
download or print the original PDF document.

這代表這個網站的 PDF 檔案不會分享至不受網站管理員控制的外部網站,進而防止不受控的檢閱、列印及分享。

可選擇性地在 PDF 檔案裡以使用者名稱或電子郵件地址作為浮水印,避免網站使用者透過螢幕擷圖的方式分享 PDF 檔案內容。

See our website wp-pdf.com for more details and purchase options.

PDF Thumbnails

Our PDF Thumbnails plugin provides automatically generates fixed image versions of all PDF files in your Media Library, to use on your site as you wish.

You can use them as featured images in posts containing an embedded version of the PDF, or as a visual clickable link to download the PDF directly.
It also displays the thumbnail as the ‘icon’ for the PDF in the Media Library, making it easy for authors to locate the PDFs they need to insert in a post.

See our website wp-pdf.com/thumbnails/ for more details and purchase options.

常見問題集

How can I obtain support for this product?

We have instructions and a Knowledge Base on our website explaining common setup queries and issues.

Please feel free to email contact@wp-pdf.com with any questions.

Always include your full shortcode, plus links to the relevant pages, and screenshots if they would be helpful too.

We may occasionally be able to respond to support queries posted on the ‘Support’ forum here on the wordpress.org plugin page, but we recommend sending us an email instead if possible.

How can I change the Size or customize the Toolbar?

See Settings -> PDF Embedder in your WordPress admin to change site-wide defaults. You can also override individual embeds by modifying the shortcode.

Resizing works as follows:

  • If width=’max’ the width will take as much space as possible within its parent container (e.g. column within your page).
  • If width is a number (e.g. width=’500′) then it will display at that number of pixels wide.

In all cases, if the parent container is narrower than the width calculated above, then the document width will be reduced to the size of the container.

The height will be calculated so that the document fits naturally, given the width already calculated.

The Next/Prev toolbar can appear at the top or bottom of the document (or both), and it can either appear only when the user hovers over the document or it can be fixed at all times.

See the Plugin Instructions for more details about sizing and toolbar options.

Premium feature list

Features available in the premium versions of the plugin:

  • Download button in the toolbar
  • Continuous scroll between pages
  • Hyperlinks are fully functional
  • Full screen mode
  • Edit page number to jump straight to page
  • Track number of downloads and views
  • Removes wp-pdf.com attribution from the toolbar
  • Mobile-friendly
  • Secure option – difficult to download original PDF

See wp-pdf.com for details!

Can I improve the viewing experience for mobile users?

Yes, our PDF Embedder Premium plugin has an intelligent ‘full screen’ mode.
When the document is smaller than a certain width, the document displays only as a ‘thumbnail’ with a large ‘View in Full Screen’ button for the user to click when they want to study your document.
This opens up the document so it has the full focus of the mobile browser, and the user can move about the document without hitting other parts of the web page by mistake.
Click Exit to return to the regular web page.

See our website wp-pdf.com for more details and purchase options.

Can I protect my PDFs so they are difficult for viewers to download directly?

Not with the free or (regular) premium versions – it is relatively easy to find the link to download the file directly.

A secure premium version is available that encrypts the PDF during transmission, so it is difficult for a casual user to save or print the file for use outside your site.

See our website wp-pdf.com for more details and purchase options.

Can I add a Download button to the toolbar?

This is possible only in the Premium version. As a workaround in the free version, you could add a direct link to the PDF beneath the embedded version.

To do this, copy the URL from the pdf-embedder shortcode and insert it into a link using HTML such as this:
<a href=”(url of PDF)”>Download Here</a>

Are Hyperlinks supported?

The Premium versions allow functioning hyperlinks – both internal links within the document, and links to external websites.

Can I remove the wp-pdf.com link from the viewer toolbar?

The easiest way is to upgrade to our Premium version, but if you know how to add entries to your database then you can add a line to the wp_options table
with option_name ‘pdfemb_poweredby’ and option_value ‘1’.

The premium version of this PDF Embedder plug-in allows the users of my site to download and print the PDFs I post. It is also easy to use. It was worth the small cost to have these additional features and to have access to ongoing support. A great plug-in and highly recommended.

We have used this on our multilingual sites for years. We did upgrade it to the paid version after only a few months of use. For a small price, it was worth it for users to be able to download the PDFs right from the toolbar in the displayed PDF. We only had one instance (after a plugin update) where we had a minor issue with the scrollbars showing up (when they had been turned off). The PDF Embedder support was quite responsive, and they fixed this issue in the very next release.

After trying several ways to incorporate a pdf registration form into my website, I finally succeeded with PDF Embedder. It was easy! Love this plugin and also PDF Thumbnails. I have always experienced quick and thorough support from them.

La versión gratuita es bastante mala, si bien es super útil para usarlo y no presenta inconvenientes a nivel programación. Su presentación visual para gratuito es deficiente. No tiene posibilidades de adaptar el tamaño y menos manejar bordes y demás. Que ponga su marca de agua está genial, y si es gratuito perfecto; pero debería ser más flexible porque si yo quiero comprarlo no tengo nada. Su forma de usar es horrible, no tiene explicación clara ni accesible. En fin, como último recurso está barbaro.

Work great if you have a simple page that isn't trying to do too much. It seems to have issues loading a PDF on the same page as Slider Revolution. The main issue is that it leaves a gap the size of the document rather than leaving it out and it's intermittent which made it a nightmare to troubleshoot. Other than that works fine.
