We support a custom experience when you choose to enhance your reader experience by applying our issuu embed feature to your website. With embeds, you can take this reading experience and make it yours. For example, embedding provides a unique way to add character to your own website or blog and engage the readers with a new and exciting way to interact.
You can find the embed widget by accessing the Publication List and clicking on “EMBED” under a publication.
The following customization options are available with all plans:
- Responsiveness and size
Change the size of the embed. If you check the “RESPONSIVE WIDTH” button the embed will be mobile friendly.
- Start page
Choose the starting page of the publication, if you for example would like to skip the cover page.
Here you can change the background color of the embed when not in fullscreen mode.
- Layout: Single/ double page spread
You have the ability to force the publication to be viewed as either a single or double page spread.
NOTE: All changes done will be reflected in the preview reader above the settings.
Advanced Custom Fields
The further customization options are for Premium/Optimum plan users:
- Remove "Powered by issuu" below the embedded reader
- Show your other publications as suggestions
Related publications are automatically removed from embeds and the Shareable Full-Screen Reader. With this setting you have the ability to suggest the last four uploaded publications.
- Hide the share button
If you’d want to prohibit sharing, you can hide the share button.
- Change the background color
Here you’re able to change the background color in the fullscreen reader.
- Add logo in fullscreen
You have the option to add your own company logo to your embed, effectively bringing more focus to your business.
- Add background image in fullscreen
Similarly you can also add a background image. You can either choose to have the picture start from the top left or have it stretched out.
Note: Images and logos must be hosted online in .JPG, .GIF or .PNG format only.
