How to Embed a PDF Document with Shortcode or Elementor Widget

In a previous FAQ we shoed you "How to Create a PDF Viewer Modal Link and Apply PDF View Triggers", and this is the preferred method of returning PDF documents to your page. It's elegant, minimalistic, and more important, the action is recorded and optional marketing triggers may be applied. If you've forgotten what the PDF Modal looks like, click on this link . However, there may be occasions where you are required to embed a PDF document, and this FAQ will detail the simple process of doing so.

  Embed a PDF With Shortcode

First, a look at the basic example:

An article on our website provides the basic HTML to accomplish what we've just shown. The difference with our shortcode is that'll always reference the most up-to-date document uploaded to Yabber's file manager.

It's quite a crude method of returning PDF documents to a page so should generally be avoided.

The link above was copied from our File Manager (as pictured), although if you're using a later framework the shortcode will be available via your WordPress editor.

  Embed a PDF With Elementor

Elementor is always a more elegant way of building content. There's no copying and pasting, and the result is consistent. To embed a PDF with Elementor, search 'pdf' and a single option is returned . Drag it into your page, select the document you wish you render, the 'style' that will be applied, and 'Save'.

To embed a PDF with Elementor, search 'pdf' and a single option is returned . Drag it into your page, select the document you wish you render, the 'style' that will be applied, and 'Save'.

Documents in Yabber are automatically populated by your Yabber uploads, but the 'Style' is a basic definition that'll slightly alter presentation.

  PDF Embed Style

The PDF Style will generally do nothing more than define size and padding. Navigate to the 'Plugins' icon in the 'Website' module. The Embed feature is rather insignificant so you'll want to scroll down the page until you find the Embed menu items.

Embed Items Navigation

  Pictured: The link above was copied from our File Manager (as pictured), although if you're using a later framework the shortcode will be available via your WordPress editor.

First, the question has to be answered - why provide simple embed profiles for PDF documents? The answer is consistency. You want to be able to update all occurrences of any page object or asset globally, and you should never have to alter each page with a PDF for such a simple task.

We'll select 'Embed Profiles' and a simple panel is returned.

PDF Embed Define Profiles

  Pictured: Select 'Embed Profiles' and a simple panel is returned. Define your height, weight, and padding. Ensure you give your profile a name and description (for your reference in forms and Elementor) and 'Save'.

Define your height, weight, and padding. Ensure you give your profile a name and description (for your reference in forms and Elementor) and 'Save'. You will note that there's an option for the 'Adobe Embed API', and this is reserved for advanced usage.

  Send Profiles to Website

Yabber is a multi-website system so we'll need to update a specific website. Select your website from the 'Send' panel and submit.

The profiles will be made available in Elementor and shortcode immediately.

  Review and Edit Profiles

You may review and edit your PDF Embed profiles from the 'Review' panel. The panel also includes information for PDF triggers (which can be ignored all embedding). Open the green icon to return an accordion with profile information and click on any 'Edit' icon to edit the applicable resource.

The embed feature is obviously a basic feature.

  General Shortcodes

Yabber includes dozens of shortcodes that may be applied in posts and pages to return different types of content. The shortcodes listed here are very general in nature and are not usually associated with a large module.

The blockquote HTML element indicates that the enclosed text is an extended quotation - usually sourced from an external source. Our blockquote shortcode supports the blockquote standard when an external URL is cited as a reference, and basic usage simply supports an indented block of text. This will make sense in a moment.
