Greetings, I’m building my first Sparkle site and need help with embeding PDF’s. How do I add PDF’s to a page. Each time Sparkle recognises the PDF as an image/jpeg and makes it tiny. I want the PDF’s to stay on the page - not download.
@TerriQ, I guess you could Embed it into a Sparkle web page?
For me I would not go down that path because on mobile the User would not have a good experience and would be pinching and zooming and most likely not bother in the end.
Thanks for responding. I’m a musician and the PDF’s are press releases and audience reviews. I’m targeting computer viewing rather than mobile. I’ve successfully done this before but with other software. Any suggestions? Thanks.
@TerriQ I would suggest this to be the quickest way…
- Place an Embed element
- Take the pasted code below and place it in the Embedded Content container
- Untick Activate After Consent
This “iframe” looks for the pdf which you will need to upload to your hosting platform. When correctly located the pdf will load into the web page. I have linked the below “src=” code to something I have online, You will need to replace it with yours.
<iframe frameborder="0" scrolling="no" width="640" height="560" src="https://tasmaniaaware.com/download/qrcode-promo-a4.pdf"> </iframe>
Easy workaround is to open the PDF in Preview, then export it as a JPG.
Place on your page at a good legible size.
Enable Sparkle’s “click to zoom” feature to allow some user flexibility as they may need.
Thanks so much for your suggestion. I’ve been playing with it and it’s just what I needed. One PDF is responding well, another doesn’t expand on click - it just comes forward at the same size. I have to manually stretch - so it works but not as streamline as the other PDF. I’m trying to see what the difference between the two are. If I figure it out I’ll let you know. But thanks again.
