      This was really easy to follow! Thank you for this tutorial. I'm going to start with the third option. I am uploading an interactive PDF with links in it. Do you know if there's a best option for mobile users? I want it to be as mobile friendly as possible.

      PROBLEM: I get a blank white page when I click on the link for your Free 17-Point WordPress Pre-Launch PDF Checklist. ?!?

      Thank you so much for sharing this information. It looks as if the third way of embedding a pdf is best for me. I have a few questions, 1. I'm interested in selling my digital flipbook on my website (I would like it to have the illusion of pages being turned), would a pdf work for a digital flipbook? 2. Can I add video to a digital flipbook? 3. I'm interested in embedding the flipbook onto my website, and not have a third party host my flipbook, can the third option you explained be embedded onto my own website? 4. I don't want to give my flipbook away, I want people to purchase it on my website, then have the ability to download it after purchasing it, will the third option work?

      I chose PDF Embedder, but it's not displaying the image in the post!!! I have been playing for some time but I can't figure it out. I would like to mention that I am using Elementor

      How does this work with Elementor/Pro

    • Jovan Peric

      Thank you for this nice video. I also have a quick question for you and hoping that you could help me. I am building a page in Elementor where I have a submenu which I want to link to an article on the same page. I don't want to use anchors because I will have 50-60 articles and the page will be just too long. Instead, I want when I click on the link to open just that article. When you click on another link it will display that other article. This way the page is not too long. This is the same as back in the days when we used HTML and by clicking on the link it will open a specific jpg image. Please help. Thank you

      Thank You for sharing 3 ways to embed a PDF, I like the download manager and will try it.

    • Blue Chip Decks

      Is there anyway I can make PDF Embed (or one of the other download options mentioned here) automatically begin the download when they arrive to the page with the plugin? The reason is I already have clients clicking on a "Download Now" button from a mail chimp email collection form.

      Much appreciated!
