Embed PDF

Recommended Posts

2 related questions:

 

1. Want to do a page like this: http://themes.pagelines.com/dms/embed-user-guide/ ----- which DMS section did you use to achieve this?

 

2. I tried using Media Box and came up with this: 

 

http://bwise.wpengine.com/stats-maps/

 

however, at least for me (Chrome), it doesn't open up PDF to fill the whole container. Even though I set it to:

 

<embed src="http://www.businesswise.com/uploads/100017_statsandmaps/100149.pdf" width="900" height="800"> </embed>

 

It only displays PDF as a small object and - when viewing the page, I'm having to click the media box controls at the bottom right to get it to stretch to full media box available area.

 

Suggestions?

 

Thanks!

 

P.S. By the way, why is the 'Attach This File' option on this forum set to limit file size to 469 bytes?? I don't have any files that tiny...

Figured it out. Created a Scribd account, uploaded a PDF to create a Scribd version of it, then pasted their embed code into a Media Box.

Thanks for the tip on Scribd.  I got a PDF posted at Scribd to display via a Media Box.  

 

But, here's my bigger issue.  If I put 3 PDFs on this page, the page will stall on an iPad.

I would like to use Tabtastic or Accordions by ElSue to separate the loading of the PDF.

I just want to load, let's say PDF number 4 while I watch lecture #4

My fear is that I won't be able to use a media box with the ElSue stuff.  Should I worry?

 

My Goal is to have one page with an embedded playlist with 7 videos in a media box on the top of the page.

Below that I want to have 7 tabs or 7 accordions, each having one PDF in a Media Box to support the lecture being that is being watched.

 

So, can I use Tabs or Accordions with Media Box and embedded PDFs for this application?

Thanks,

~mar

Hi Mar,

 

I have had to @ellenmva mention the Ellen in this post, as I do not have access to the Tabs section so I am unable to tell you if you can achieve your preferred layout.

 

In regards to the iPad stalling/freezing, this is likely an issue with the iPad itself. I have experienced this myself and remember there being a lot of topics posted on the Apple Community Forums.

      Hello,
      I need some help!  I am trying to add a Square booking script.  When I add it to a embed section it crashes the page editor and I am unable to save the page version.  I have tried using different browsers with the same result.
       I can add the script on the backend in the word press content area and get it to show and work, but it look terrible.  A page with in a page.  http://www.zoeanastacia.com/booking/.
      I need help getting the page editor to work properly or to make the wp content section to not look like an 90's iframe.
      Thanks

      Hi guys,
      I have been trying unsuccessfully to center my social media bar that I embedded into an "embed" section. Regular text and links are centered based on the alignment setting of the section but I can't get the social icons to center. Any clue what CSS snippets could do the trick?

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      Hello,
      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      In DMS we used to have the section "PLNextBox"that was pretty handy for adding php code in different parts of the page. I used it a lot in global sections like the footer and header to detect what is the current language of the site and based on that output the right string.
      Is the embed section going to support php in the future? are you bringing PLNextBox to PL5? is there another way to work with multiple languages for the global footer and header sections?
