Very nice, thanks,

Is it suppose to look like this thou:, not sure it meant to be but it seems to restrict the width.

Nice mod. I adjusted the width and height to make the embeds larger by increasing their values in subs.php.

Nice mod. I adjusted the width and height to make the embeds larger by increasing their values in subs.php.

Do you mind telling me what size you used? i dont want to make it to big so it is to large and ruins the look of theme if to wide etc.

Thank you,

The width I used might not be optimal for your site since my forum is wrapped inside a bridged CMS. If you make the width too large it shouldn't wreck your pages. Instead the pdf should just get cut off. Then, you can just decrease the number til it fits. The height should work fine. I have it set to display the full first page.

Code: [Select]
<embed type="application/pdf" src="$1" width="775" height="975" />

can be done something so it doesn`t  load whole pdf at once and every time you refresh page ?
is a really big problem with files larger than 6 mb and especially with 30 mb files, IE loads it but a grey window is showing instead of the document, you have to refresh to load it again to show it normally ......

Duncan,
thanks. My wife came and looked at the screenshot and then smacked me in the head. :)
My screen reader didn't read it for me since it was an image. So, had to use the wife's eyes - again.
Tried it out in a post and it worked perfectly!!

Thanks again.

I have installed this mod on a 2.0 RC-1 board.  I used the pdf_tag_1.1.zip file and uploaded the package and it said it installed successfully.  When I try to use the pdf tags and place a valid pdf file (on another site) I get a post that says "click here to download plugin"  When I click it it says no plugin is available.  Can someone help this poor newb get this working?  I am sure I have done something basic incorrectly and will look forward to hearing about it.  ;>)

Title: ATTACHED PDF
Post by: Angelina Belle on June 22, 2009, 01:51:41 PM
I would like to embed an attached PDF.  This does not work well at all.

Here is an example of embedding an "unattached" PDF
http://rockhallsailingclub.org/smf/index.php?topic=58.0

Here is an example, using the same PDF file.  This time, though, I have attempted to attach it to a post and then embed it in the same post, using the PDF file.  SMF insists that the attached PDF file needs to be opened in a new window.  That really messes up the message window and the browser window with the empty object/embed window seems really unhappy, too.
http://rockhallsailingclub.org/smf/index.php?topic=76.0

Is there a solution to the problem?

Thanks

Thanks.  That tells me it might not be so simple to attach a PDF and then embed the PDF.  I'll go ask someplace else.
The PDF mod seems to be working great for what it was designed to do.

Open:

Add before:

array(
'image' => 'quote',
'code' => 'quote',

Open:

Find:

Add before:

$txt['Add_PDF'] = 'Add PDF';
Make sure you grab the PDF image from the package here and load it into your theme's BBC folder.

Are you using an utf-8?

then you have to enter manually the string  in this file: "Modifications.english-utf8.php" - or whatever language is you prefered one. The package does have only german-utf8 and simple English included.

Code: [Select]
$txt['pdf'] = 'add PDF';
So if you have a French forum you need to enter the code string in "Modifications.french-utf8.php" / "Modifications.french.php". and you need add the translation for "add PDF"

I just upgraded my site from SMF 1.07 to 2.02 and I lost PDF Tag as a result. Previously PDF tag was working flawlessly. Now after I installed it in 2.02 I get the dreaded "File does not begin with '%PDF'" error message and I do not know what to do.

I went through the instructions I have seen for the code that should be modified for PDF Tag and it all seems to be correct. Not sure what else I can do. Any help would be appreciated as this just caused major problems on my forum as we use embedded PDF's

I'm having the same issue in SMF 2.0.3 - works fine in FF but not in IE10 (shows the frame of the box but just an X in the upper left corner).


FOLLOW UP:  IE10 32-bit will display the pdf but not 64-bit. So if you insist on using IE, be sure it's the 32-bit version. Otherwise just use FF or Chrome, etc.

aoife,

 pdf file types will open in IE10 (64 bit) (via Adobe Reader) with a simple adjustment. This is assuming that you have Adobe Reader installed on your computer.

Open your IE10 64bit browser & navigate to the following:
Tools -> Internet Options -> Programs -> Set Programs -> Associate a file type or protocol with a program

.. it may take a moment to load all the varios file types. Scroll down to pdf file type & double click.. Opt Adobe Reader as the program to open those files, click OK & then click CLOSE.

After the above setting change you should be able to view pdf documents using the IE10 64bit browser (which uses Adobe Reader to view them/it).

FOLLOW UP:  IE10 32-bit will display the pdf but not 64-bit. So if you insist on using IE, be sure it's the 32-bit version. Otherwise just use FF or Chrome, etc.

aoife,

 pdf file types will open in IE10 (64 bit) (via Adobe Reader) with a simple adjustment. This is assuming that you have Adobe Reader installed on your computer.

Open your IE10 64bit browser & navigate to the following:
Tools -> Internet Options -> Programs -> Set Programs -> Associate a file type or protocol with a program

.. it may take a moment to load all the varios file types. Scroll down to pdf file type & double click.. Opt Adobe Reader as the program to open those files, click OK & then click CLOSE.

After the above setting change you should be able to view pdf documents using the IE10 64bit browser (which uses Adobe Reader to view them/it).

Thank you for the suggestion. I use Adobe Acrobat X and don't have Reader installed on my machines. The .pdf files are associated with Acrobat already - I redid the association and it still does not work with 64-bit. However, it works fine using IE10 32-bit; IE is not my default browser. I was simply looking for a solution for folks that are using the forums and who do use Internet Explorer - it's a solution I found on the Acrobat site.

I don't know about setting the zoom, but you can set the widow size by modifying the code in Subs.php as follows:

Code: [Select]
// PDF [pdf]example.pdf[/pdf]
         array(
            'tag' => 'pdf',
            'type' => 'unparsed_content',
            'content' => ($context['browser']['is_ie'] && !$context['browser']['is_mac_ie'] ? '<object type="application/pdf" classid="clsid:CA8A9780-280D-11CF-A24D-444553540000" data="$1" width="800" height="600"><param name="src" value="$1"><embed src="$1" width="800" height="600" /><noembed><a href="$1" target="_blank">$1</a></noembed></object>' : '<embed type="application/pdf" src="$1" width="800" height="600" /><noembed><a href="$1" target="_blank">$1</a></noembed>'),
            'validate' => create_function('&$tag, &$data, $disabled', '
               if (isset($disabled[\'url\']))
                  $tag[\'content\'] = \'$1\';'),
            'disabled_content' => '<a href="$1" target="_blank">$1</a>',
         ),

Aloha, is this MOD still supported? We are updating all our sites and the create_function code needs to be updated in this mod for PHP 7.2. If the MOD is not supported I will make the changes going forward for our sites.

This mod has a couple of shortcomings as you need the pdf to be located on your system and even then, it will only work on the desktop and not Android cellphones. It also has a 500px by 400px frame.

I have built a 1.3 version for a larger frame using 800x1000 pixels but decided to use this instead HTML code instead:

[html]<embed src="https://website/example.pdf" width="800px" height="1000px" />[/html]



For Android (cell phones) this link needs to be taken but works well for any online pdf:

Oh sorry about that - I didn't see any copyright so I thought it was ok.

It won't happen again.

there's more or less a blanket copyright here on smf....rule of thumb it's not ok to upload the entire mod without the mod authors ok...but you can put in a post instructions on how to update the mod for others use.

 :laugh: no worries, I've been slapped myself for doing that as well  :P
