    Basic use

    To embed a PDF you’ve uploaded to your WordPress site’s media
    library, simply put the URL for the attachment page in your
    post on its own line. The PDF will be embedded with the
    default settings at that location, as if it were using oEmbed.


    Post short URL:
    Page With Left Sidebar
    Attachment default URL:
    Page With Left Sidebar
    Attachment pretty URL: http://localhost/test/report1/ Media direct URL:

    Click to access report1.pdf

    This doesn’t work for PDFs hosted on other websites, or if you
    need to change the parameters.

    Using the [pdf] shorttag

    If the PDF isn’t in your WordPress site’s media library, or if
    you want to customize any parameters for the embed, then use
    the [pdf]...[/pdf] shorttag. Between the tags, you’ll provide
    the URL for the PDF to embed. If the PDF is in your WordPress
    site’s media library, you can either give the attachment page
    URL, or the URL to the PDF file directly.

    The [pdf] shorttag accepts several optional parameters:

    • width – sets the width of the frame the PDF is embedded in.
      By default, this is set to 100%.
    • height – sets the height of the frame the PDF is embedded
      in. By default, this is unset.
    • title – sets the title of the PDF, for use in the fallback
      link text.
    • open_params – sets the PDF open params
      which control how the PDF file is displayed in the embed frame.
      These are poorly supported in browsers.


    Post short URL: [pdf width="200px"]http://localhost/?p=9[/pdf]
    Attachment default URL: [pdf height="500em"]http://localhost/?attachment_id=9[/pdf]
    Attachment pretty URL: [pdf title="Report 1"]http://localhost/test/report1/[/pdf]
    Media direct URL: [pdf]http://localhost/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/report1.pdf[/pdf]
    Change PDF open params: [pdf open_params="page=10&view=Fit"]http://localhost/?p=9[/pdf]


    The PDF should be embedded in the page, with the document scaled so it fills the
    embed frame horizontally. Unfortunately, embedding PDFs is not well-supported.

    Auto-loading embedded PDFs

    Unlike with images, web browsers may not automatically download and display
    embedded PDFs when the page is loaded. For security reasons, some users prefer
    not to allow the PDF plugin to run unless they trust the website the PDF comes
    from. This generally leaves a grey rectangle that the user may click on to allow
    the PDF to be downloaded and displayed.

    PDF open parameters

    As of v0.0.8, you can set the PDF open parameters
    by setting open_params in the shortcode, as shown above. This is unlikely to actually
    anything, since PDF open parameters are poorly supported in browsers. But you can try!
    Provide the parameters as a query string: page=1&view=Fit. Refer to the Adobe
    documentation on what parameters are available.


    The PDF should be scaled/zoomed within the embed frame so that the full
    horizontal width of the paper fills the frame. This is not
    Chrome’s default PDF viewer, so the document will probably be scaled to 100%,
    which may either mean the document doesn’t fill the frame, or, more likely, the
    document is too wide for the frame, and the right-hand side of the document is

    Internet Explorer

    Internet Explorer requires a PDF plugin to render embedded PDFs. Generally,
    that’s Adobe Reader. Without such a plugin, the fallback download link will be

    Mobile browsers

    In particular, mobile browsers may show a grey box instead of the embedded PDF,
    and will download the file when it is clicked. Other mobile browsers might embed
    the PDF, but won’t allow it to scroll.


    Your best alternative is to not embed PDFs. PDFs are bad for many reasons:
    not easily indexed by search engines, not easily accessible by readers who use
    assistive technologies, poorly supported by web browsers (as seen above) and so
    on. They’re just bad and you should avoid embedding PDFs if you can.

    If you really can’t, then you might consider using another solution like or PDF.js.
