Using the iFrame - Issuu content type

Issuu is a digital publishing platform that allows you to embed pdf publications into a page. See the Reporter example below.

Give it a try

To create an Issuu you will need 1) an Issuu account, 2) a finished publication to upload and 3) the Issuu embed code.

Once you have uploaded your publication get the Issuu embed code. It will look something like this:

<iframe style="width:525px; height:350px;" src="//e.issuu.com/embed.html#13962328/63396669" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

You only need part of this bit of the code for the t4 content type:  //e.issuu.com/embed.html#13962328/63396669

1. Add an Issuu content type to the relevant page in your site structure. (Find out how to add a content type to a section).

2. This table shows the fields available in the Issuu content type.
