    embedding PDFs Link to this post

    Hey all, I'm trying to wrap up coding for the resources in the site I'm working on, and I just need a push in the right direction.

    I'm building a portfolio site for a writer. The idea is that one page is a list of articles, stories, etc she has written, and when you click on a link it takes you to a new page, still within the site, but with the pdf of said article embedded within the content area (underneath its title). I want to avoid using third-party tools like Scribd for this, so my client can upload everything on her site and not elsewhere.

    So my question is, is it possible to embed a PDF into the content of the page, and if so how do I code that into a resources template?

    (sorry if my explanation sounds garbled. I've attached mock layout sketches to help with that.)

    Hi.

    Maybe this is what you are looking for: PDFObject
    From their site: "PDFObject is an easy-to-use method for dynamically embedding PDF files into HTML documents. It uses JavaScript to generate and inject a standards-friendly... bla bla"

    I've never used it (and I'm not related in any way with PDFObject), so I don't know how hard it will be to integrate that thing into a SilverStripe installation.

    Cheers
    Christian
