In my opinion the best way is to add a pdf to your site is to add a link and let the browser handle the pdf when the link is opened.
Browsers do that quite nicely.
Forget about the fancy effects… like flipbooks.
Flipbooks are in my opinion annoying. I’ve done a few on request of customers – but I don’t like the result. Books aren’t really meant to be read like books on a computer… we have the ebook format for that.
But pdf are nice in the way – that they work perfect for print… once done for print – uploading to the internet – time saved.
But a pdf-page on a smartphone is… hard to read. Text doesn’t reflow. It’s too small because most text heavy pdf are done with a 10-11-12 point font size.
PDF on a computer… you click to zoom in on a text, that’s often too small – and you loose track of where you are on the page.
Adding a pdf to a RapidWeaver Stacks page only requires a small amount of code. In fact I’ve added the feature to one of my free Stacks. But I won’t advertise for the feature and the Stack – because it’s not a good solution.
PDf = link = let the browsers deal with the links… it works. It’s not fancy – but it works.
Joe’s download stack is nice… by the way.
So is a link to the pdf stored in RW resources.
