PDF Embedder


Upload PDF files and embed them directly into your site’s posts and pages. It works as simple as adding images! Your PDF files will be automatically sized to their natural size and shape. You can also specify a width and the correct height will be calculated automatically. Our PDF Embedder plugin is fully responsive, so the embedded PDF will also look perfect, on any device. Additionally, the pdf embedder will automatically resize whenever the browser dimensions change.

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

The PDF viewer has Next and Previous buttons to navigate the document, and zoom buttons if some areas of a PDF file are too small for your screen.

Your PDF files 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). This means your PDF files will load fast, without any speed penalty.

Other PDF embedder plugins insert the PDF into an ’iframe’ which means they do not get the flexibility over sizing. Ours does not and that is a incredible benefit to the overall viewing experience across all devices.

In the free plugin, there is no button for users to download the PDF, but download options are available in the Premium versions along with other awesome features.

Another Premium feature are Hyperlinks in your PDF being clickable. Links in the free plugin cannot be clicked.


  1. När det är installerat och aktiverat klickar du på ”Lägg till media” från valfri sida eller inlägg, precis som att lägga till en bild, men dra och släpp en PDF-fil istället.

  2. När du infogar i ditt inlägg kommer det visas i redigeraren som en ”kortkod” enligt följande:

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

  4. 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.

Mobilvänlig inbäddning med PDF Embedder Premium

The free version will work on most mobile browsers, but cannot position the document entirely within the screen.

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. Viewers can then Click Exit to return to the regular page.

The user can also swipe continuously between all pages of the PDF which is more natural than clicking the navigation buttons to navigate.

Se vår webbplats wp-pdf.com för mer detaljer och köpalternativ.

Protect your PDFs with our secure premium pdf embedder 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.

Det betyder att din PDF troligtvis inte kommer att delas utanför din webbplats där du inte har kontroll över vem som visar, skriver ut eller delar den.

Optionally, add a watermark containing the user’s name or email address to discourage sharing of screenshots.

Se vår webbplats wp-pdf.com för mer detaljer och köpalternativ.

PDF Thumbnails

Our PDF Thumbnails plugin 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.

Vanliga frågor

Hur kan jag få support för denna produkt?

Vi har instruktioner och en kunskapbas på vår webbplats som förklarar vanliga inställningsfrågor och problem.

Tveka inte att skicka e-post till contact@wp-pdf.com med alla frågor du har.

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.

Hur kan jag ändra storlek eller anpassa verktygsfältet?

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:

  • Om bredd = ”max” kommer bredden utnyttja så mycket utrymme som möjligt i dess överordnade behållare (t.ex. kolumn på din sida).
  • 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.

Kan jag förbättra visningsupplevelsen för mobilanvändare?

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.

Se vår webbplats wp-pdf.com för mer detaljer och köpalternativ.

Kan jag skydda mina PDF:er så att de är svåra för tittarna att ladda ner direkt?

Not with the free or (regular) pdf embedder 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.

Se vår webbplats wp-pdf.com för mer detaljer och köpalternativ.

Kan jag lägga till en nedladdningsknapp i verktygsfältet?

This is possible only in the PDF Embedder 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>

Stöds hyperlänkar?

Premium-versionen tillåter funktionella hyperlänkar – både interna länkar i dokumentet och länkar till externa webbplatser.

Kan jag ta bort wp-pdf.com-länken från visarens verktygsfält?

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’.

Several bugs appeared at the beginning of 2023 from version 5.1 of the pro version…These bugs are still not all fixed!We can just go back to the previous version these bugs…The developers of this plugin don't care about their customers…I give 2 stars, because the plugin was very good before.

5.0.2 paid version works "as expected" (very close to free version though, be sure you need it). 5.4.1 was really a bad experience and should not be advertized as a production version. It simply do not work for mobile viewing.2 stars because - while finally I got it working as per my needs - I've spent hours changing various settings on my site (I thought WP Supercache was the pain point. Spoiler : it's not) and displayed live crappy page in the meantime.

For years I solved the pdf problem by converting the file to Word, then importing to WP. When I saw this -- and saw that it worked -- I was overjoyed. My blogging has become much more productive. I upgraded, buying the five site pack. If you don't use the Pro version, you're wasting a lot of time maintaining your website.

on my WP v5.9.7 the blocks editor mode endlessly prompts for installing the plugin, but the embed code approach still works fine and is super easy: [pdf-embedder url='Plan-Summary.pdf'] i couldn't get 4 other pdf embedders to work either so there must be a new paradigm change that's breaking everything lately. note, their support doesn't keep up on these forums, click into support threads on upper right gutter of this page and you'll see the pinned "How to get Support" thread.

This used to be a great plugin, until V5.1. That version broke everything, displayed unrelated backgrounds for other plugins and stopped displaying the PDF watermarks properly. A big mess. I reported the issues to support as I'm using the premium version, but support never bothered to reply, either in this initial support request or when I posted in forum threads about the same issues. This is why I'm posting this review, to warn potential users. Each version since 5.1 got better and resolved some of the issues, but 5.1.4 released recently still doesn't display the watermark properly. It's off-center and looks completely unprofessional. I'm still using 5.0.2 while it works, as it has none of the issues with the other versions, but I've cancelled support renewal given that I'm stuck with an old version and am not getting any of the support I've paid for over the last few years, without ever using or needing it. Note that my current support is still active (until September). I just won't renew it for no benefit if I don't get support and can't use newer versions because I'm stuck with an old one. I advise everyone to stay clear from the premium version as the current version is broken and you won't get any support. Try to get V5.0.2 from the downloads history in the user panel, as it works very well. Shame that a developper charges for support but doesn't deliver any. I get better support from free plugins. I'll update this review if I either get the support I've paid for or if the issues in version 5.1.x are resolved. Before these issues (and before I needed access to the inexistent support), I would have given four stars to this plugin. The only feature missing is the ability to download a PDF with the personalised watermark. Currently download is the file without any watermark, which doesn't help at all, so I use another plugin for that.
