Plugin / Scribd Doc Embedder

Eric Boles



Adds 2 shortcodes so Scribd documents or documents supported by Scribd (e.g. PDF, MS Office, ePub, and many others) can
be embedded into a web page using the Scribd Docs Reader. These shortcodes provide functionality beyond the standard scribd
embed shortcode provided in Jetpack by

Version 2 Now includes shortcode button and configurator in the editor so you easily enter the information you need to embed you documents. Take a look at the screenshots to see them.

[scribd-doc] Shortcode:

  • Allows you to embed a document that has been uploaded to Scribd.
  • The Scribd document can be public or private.
  • Requires both the document ID and the document key:
  • [scribd-doc doc=”DOCID” key=”KEY”]

[scribd-url] Shortcode:

  • Allows you to create a Scribd Reader from a publicly accessible URL.
  • Naturally requires that the document type be supported by Scribd.
  • Requires both the document URL and your Scribd Publisher API key:
  • [scribd-url url=”FULL-URL” pubid=”YOUR-SCRIBD-PUBLISHER-ID”]

Both shortcodes support many optional parameters provided by the Scribd API:

  • width: Define the width of the Reader in pixels.
  • height: Define the height of the Reader in pixels.
  • page: Set a page number for the Reader to load on.
  • mode: Define the player mode (either “list” or “slideshow”)
  • share: Defines whether the share button in the toolbar is shown, overriding the default (either “true” or “false”)
  • seamless: If set to “true”, puts the player into seamless mode
    (seamless is only supported by scribd-doc)

If height or width are not set, the Scribd Reader will attempt to size itself correctly.

Note: You will need a Scribd account and a Scribd API key for this plugin to work.
