PDF viewer ?

Post by mrwillow » Tue Oct 08, 2019 3:17 pm

Hi,

Is there a good PDF viewer extension available (or however best phrased)? I could simply upload the PDF I have in mind, and its URL ending with .pdf, but I wondered if there were a more elegant way of displaying this?

Thank you,

DC

Sorry there is no extension for this it will require a custom script or third party script
Maybe one of the following scripts could be used.

Hi Mr Fries,

Thank you for this, though I tend to shudder at the idea of scripts and I can't even tell which one of the ones you suggested I can simply go ahead and use (read: free).

If I may just relay my limited thinking, and you correct me from here. Now I can upload the PDF directly to my server, and as a URL it would have a .pdf ending. In all fairness, as previously said, I am not unhappy with this as it would open in another browser by way of a simple thumbnail. But it's not an elegant, in-page solution. Which of the solutions you suggest can I simply insert the appropriate script into, presumably into the Page HTML function?

Thank you,

DC

Correct, see the following Links Although it not the most glamorous it is the easiest as no knowledge of using scripts is needed. The last url describes how to
embed a PDF into a webpage and display it for you a bit more glamorous than just a link. All the links to the script would do what you need but it will need some knowledge on your part to use.
