PS: Join our free weekly interactive Issuu Academy Workshop (North America) or Issuu Academy Workshop (EU) for a live demo on customizing your Issuu embeds and interact with our Customer Success Team.
An embedded publication is a version of your Issuu publication that is added to your website, CMS, blog or social channels to make it easier for both current and new readers to find you.
Publishers have more customization options when setting up embeds for their website, CMS, blog or social channels.
As a publisher, embedding publication allows you to determine the size, appearance and sharing capabilities of your content, giving you a control over how your work is displayed to readers.
NOTE: Embed feature is not available on Basic/Free plan anymore. It is available only on our paid plans - Starter, Premium and Optimum. So, users on Basic plan will not have the ability to create embeds.
If you are on Basic/Free plan, GET EMBED CODE button is disabled.
If you are a Basic plan user, your existing Embeds will not be working anymore from November 25, 2019. This means if publications are embedded on your website, then embeds will be greyed out for readers and they will be sent to Issuu.com in order to read your publications.
