I was looking around to embed a pdf that I have on my google drive. So I used the iframe code and replaced FILE-URL with the sharig URL that I got of my drive. However, it first gave me an error (an empty frame) and now it is giving me a soup of letters. Any idea what I should do? I am using RW vanilla without Stacks
Get Stacks!!! Save yourself lots of headaches.
Then get @joeworkman PDF Embed stack.
Without seeing the code or a URL to what you have done, it’s impossible to say.
I took instuctions from Embed Google Docs document and PDF files within your web page – Web Notes and Ramblings
ok, so I put a placeholder pdf for now on my Drive. URL is https://drive.google.com/file/d/1N3QV30sBLjY4w2ewSK6t3mmiW9HRuWDo/view?usp=sharing Everybody with the link can see it.
Then I replaced FILE-URL (see below) with the google drive link. But that does not give me a result.
Can’t see the code in your post. Need to see it to help.

The instructions you are following show this update
The following link does not work any more. BUT the methods below do! Do not go to this address just follow the instructions.
The document viewer
https://docs.google.com/viewer (link is bad now, but the instructions below work…) has two parameters:
So the iframe viewer the code you’re showing doesn’t work any longer.
Ok, I thought that referred to the pdf he had linked. I think the easiest will be to have the pdf as a file on my website. With a size of 145kb, I don’t think I will run into bandwidth exceeded messages.
