Alternative Method

If you simply want to display pdf files, you can use Scribd as an embed option for on-site document viewing. With this method, you will be uploading files directly to your Scribd account and using our HTML module to display the pdf on your site. To learn more about Scribd’s Embed Option click here.

NOTE: Use of the HTML module to embed any third-party code is a Premium feature. To upgrade your site with a Premium package, please click here.
