I have embed a PDF file from Google Drive into a Joomla driven site, using the code:

<p><iframe src="http://docs.google.com/open?id=ADDRESS" width="90%" height="480"></iframe></p>

Open in new window


It does display, howeveran the left of the iframe there is a scrolling preview pane of all the pages in the pdf. This takes alot of space on small monitors.

Is ther an option to just display pages in full width?

Try adding "&embedded=true" to the end of the source URL.

you mention the folder not a single document?

try....(replace documentname.pdf with your document name)

<p><iframe src="http://docs.google.com/open?id=documentname.pdf&embedded=true" style="width:90%; height:480px;" frameborder="0"></iframe>

Hi Everyone. I couldn't get any of the above working. I used Scribd instead.

Many thanks.

I couldn't get the other solutions to work. It was just one of thoese things where the quickest thing to do was use a different tool. When I tried deleting the question it said if I had an answer to post and accept it.
