A great way to organise and store resources is to put them all into a Google Drive folder. Here we show you how to embed the contents of a Drive folder into a post or page of your website.
Embedding a Google Drive folder is nice and easy. Just follow the steps below:
1.) Open up Google Drive and find the folder you want to use. Make sure the folder is shared correctly otherwise people won’t be able to view the contents when it’s embedded!
2.) Grab the ID of the folder. You can get this from the URL when you’re within the folder or from the folder sharing popup.
3.) Paste the embed code below into your post or page, replacing FOLDER-ID with the ID of your Drive folder. You can adjust the ‘height’ attribute to suit your needs.
<iframe src="https://drive.google.com/embeddedfolderview?id=FOLDER-ID#list" width="100%" height="400" frameborder="0"></iframe>
Here’s a working example:
A little code snippet for reliable embedding of PDFs with a fallback link for non-compatible browsers.
It’s essentially four steps:
- Upload your PDF to the WordPress media library
- Copy the URL to the uploaded PDF
- With the text editor in ‘text’ view you can now paste in the snippet below
- Replace “PDF_URL” with your PDF URL from the media library
Here’s the snippet of code you will need.
<object data="PDF_URL" type="application/pdf" width="100%" height="1200px"> <p><a href="PDF_URL">You can click here to download the PDF file.</a></p> </object>
