PDF lightbox viewer by csomorelwood



You just simply need to put the shortcode into your site, and it will do the job.

  1. Upload your PDF to Media Library
  2. Make a new post at the Lightbox PDF menu
  3. Set the title, thumbnail, select an mp3 file and select a pdf file
  4. Check the ID of the created PDF post
  5. Put the shortcode wherever you need

The shortcode looks like this:
[lbpdfviewr id={ID of the LightBox PDF you want} type={button / thumbnail} audio={true / false} class=”{custom css class}”]



Why is it better, than other PDF viewer solutions?

It is completely free, and it does its job. It does not have hyper fancy animations, and etc., it is clean and memory-friendly.
