PDFs/Infographic Embeds

Currently, it is recommended to create an image thumbnail to embed PDF and Infographic content and then link to the document from Wrangler in a new window versus embedding the default iFrame. iFrames are not responsive by default, which restrict users to a pre-defined viewing height that does not adjust with different screen sizes or devices. What may work for desktop does not necessarily work for tablet and vice versa.

To embed the thumbnail that will link to the PDF, follow the steps for embedding a Wrangler Images and Videos (above). When selecting a crop for the image, select the Spur 16:9 crop. This will take a 16:9 ratio crop out of the topmost section of the full PDF (most often used for info-graphic thumbnails).

After embedding the thumbnail image in a post, follow the steps below to link the desired PDF:

1. Click the 'Share' button and then copy the link

Locate desired the media item again on the Wrangler website.  Click the corresponding 'Share' button. Set intended use to 'Website', Click on the link icon to reveal and copy a direct link to the full PDF. Link the Wrangler link to the thumbnail image in a post.
