Post by rithee » Wed Jun 13, 2018 12:41 pm

Hello everyone. I'm new to the community and PHPBB.
I have setup PHPBB for my IT dep and I want to get the PDF to view on the post instead of a
download link when the team upload the PDF. I had try many difference of BBCodes but i'm unable to make the pdf to display on the post. so far this the BBcode i've found on the internet. I am not sure if this PDF viewer only work with active PDF link not for the attachment.
BBCode usage
HTML replacement
<iframe src="{URL}&embedded=true" style="width:600px; height:500px;" frameborder="0"></iframe>
