How to generate a preview of your PDF on your website

Updated 4 months ago ​by Jeroma Molde

Here's a quick and easy guide on how to generate a preview of your PDF file to your website.

  1. Go to Scribd.com.
  2. Register and upload your PDF.
  3. Click the Share and Embed button and copy the HTML code they provide.
  4. Insert the code into a page on your website by clicking the SOURCE button in the text editor, then paste the code in.

Your page will then have a preview of the PDF file and an option to download or print the file.

There is also another option, but this does not include a preview of the file. You can upload the PDF file to a cloud storage such as dropbox.com. You can then copy the URL to the file and then post it to your website so that your guests can download the PDF file. This option does not only limit to PDF files but to all file types.
