    Hmmm. I installed the plugin, uploaded my PDF, copied the link and put
    [embed] [/embed] around it but it just displays as a big empty space.

    Hi Craig, I want to embed a PDF into my website, but i don’t want users to
    download it. Is there a different plugin so i can do this ? Thanks in
    advance !

    Sadly you can only install plugins with self hosted WordPress sites. I take
    it you’re site is a free wordpress(dot)com site/blog?

    good video – do you need to upgrade your wordpress account to get plugins?
    I can’t see an option for it in my dashboard

    Craig, excellent video thanks! My pdf is clickable though and when I use
    the embed code, it displays as non-clickable. Do you know how I can retain
    all the clickable components?

    Thank you for the post. It is quite helpful. I am just wondering if there
    is way to make the size of the pdf box larger in the post without using
    zooming in. Thanks….

    Thank you! I was having issues with google doc installer!

    Hi, I’m not sure if that’s possible as most of the plugins that allow you
    to embed PDF files into wordpress use the Google Doc viewer. I’ll have a
    quick look and post back if I find anything.

    That’s Google’s take on my accent.

    Thank you Craig, this post was very helpful. When I embedded my pdf the
    quality is very poor on the website, do you have any ideas?

    Hi – thanks for the reply. Yes it is a blog, but I’ve just worked out how
    to embed using scribd -better than nothing!

    This tutorial will show you how to embed a PDF file into
    a WordPress post/page, the first part covers adding to media library and
    linking to the PDF file within a post/page. Second part cover embedding a
    PDF directly in the post/page, allowing visitors to view the PDF file
    without leaving the post/page.

    Has anyone noticed that the plugin doesn’t work in Chrome?? It works 100%
    fine in Firefox, but not Chrome… has anyone found a fix for this?
    Otherwise, this post was extremely helpful, Craig!
