Adds 2 shortcodes so Scribd documents or documents supported by Scribd (e.g. PDF, MS Office, ePub, and many others) can
be embedded into a web page using the Scribd Docs Reader. These shortcodes provide functionality beyond the standard scribd
embed shortcode provided in Jetpack by WordPress.com.
Version 2 Now includes shortcode button and configurator in the editor so you easily enter the information you need to embed you documents. Take a look at the screenshots to see them.
- Allows you to embed a document that has been uploaded to Scribd.
- The Scribd document can be public or private.
- Requires both the document ID and the document key:
- [scribd-doc doc=”DOCID” key=”KEY”]
- Allows you to create a Scribd Reader from a publicly accessible URL.
- Naturally requires that the document type be supported by Scribd.
- Requires both the document URL and your Scribd Publisher API key:
- [scribd-url url=”FULL-URL” pubid=”YOUR-SCRIBD-PUBLISHER-ID”]
Both shortcodes support many optional parameters provided by the Scribd API:
- width: Define the width of the Reader in pixels.
- height: Define the height of the Reader in pixels.
- page: Set a page number for the Reader to load on.
- mode: Define the player mode (either “list” or “slideshow”)
- share: Defines whether the share button in the toolbar is shown, overriding the default (either “true” or “false”)
- seamless: If set to “true”, puts the player into seamless mode
(seamless is only supported by scribd-doc)
If height or width are not set, the Scribd Reader will attempt to size itself correctly.
