Adding PDFs to WordPress

What if I told you there’s a way to embed PDF documents on your web page?  Yep!  There’s a plugin for that.  I have a client who shares several pdf forms and after trying several solutions, we found a plugin that actually works.  PDF Embedder allows you the ability to upload PDFs and embed them straight into your site – just like adding images!

PDF Embedder uses Javascript within your existing WordPress pages, no iframes or third-party services! This gives a lot of flexibility over the appearance of your document.  To see an example, visit and view one we embedded ourselves at APEC Learning Center.

By default, WordPress displays PDF files as links. Visitors view the PDF by downloading it or opening it in a new window. There is a premium version for as little as $20 you can upgrade to.

The Premium plugin features extra features that are not available in the free version for adding PDFs:

  • ‘Download PDF’ button allows users to obtain the PDF to read in their own choice of viewer
  • Jump straight to page by typing page number
  • Fully functioning hyperlinks
  • Track number of views and downloads
  • Unbranded – no link
