Although readers can embed Issuu content around the web, publishers have more customization options when setting up embeds for their website, CMS, blog or social channels. As a publisher, embedding a publication allows you to determine the size, appearance, sharing capabilities and more of your content, giving you control over how your work is displayed to readers. This article explains how to customize and embed your Issuu publications and choose the right code for your site.
For All Publishers
1. From your Publication List select the publication you would like to embed
2. Go to ADD TO WEBSITE and click the button to be directed to the embed widget
3. Adjust the styling options to your liking. See this guide to learn about different customization options
TIP: As you change the different variables, your Embed Reader preview at the top will automatically update.
4. Select CREATE NEW to save your custom embed style
5. Name your embed style, then choose CONFIRM
6. Select GET CODE
TIP: If you are editing a previously-saved embed style, you can skip steps 3-5. Once your edits are made, select SAVE AND GET CODE. All edits (other than sizing) will be automatically updated wherever you’ve already added the embed.
7. Select the type of code you need. Below you can learn the difference between the codes
8. Choose COPY TO CLIPBOARD
9. Add the code to your website, CMS, blog or social channel
Embedding on Specific Sites
Depending on where you are trying to embed or share your publication, you’ll need the right embed code. Below is a description of the different types of code from which to choose after setting up your embed using the embed widget.
The Default code works for most sites and is the recommended way to embed, so try that one first.
The iFrame code is the best out-of-the-box solution for publishers that don’t need any customization.
Sites like Tumblr and Wordpress automatically embed your publication when you place the Link URL in a post.
On LinkedIn you'll have to go to your profile and the experience section, click edit, choose link and paste a publication URL here. There's no need to use any sort of embed code, just a regular URL.
This link also serves as a Shareable Full-Screen Reader. If you encounter problems adding your Shareable Full-Screen Reader link on your Wordpress site, try using iFrame or script.
