Embed your documents with edocr One of the most powerful things you can do with your documents shared on edocr is 'embed' them on a web page or within a blog. All it takes is a snippet of code that we provide directly from our view page. Embed the full view of the document, or a thumbnail that provides a click event to view the full size document. You can also add a 'Follow' link allowing your content followers to be notified by email if the document, or group of documents, is modified, added to, or replaced. Start by storing the document on edocr, or on any cloud accessible storage site such as Dropbox, then open to view the document on edocr. When you publish your document on edocr you have the choice of three HTML5 viewers for display: Vertical scroll (like this document), horizontal scroll (like e-reader) or slideshow (with timed auto page advance). Our mobile-responsive viewers then provide a seamless experience with your content regardless of device it is being viewed on. Now, it’s time to embed! It’s this easy: 1. Open the document you wish to embed in a web page or blog. 2. Click that embed symbol </> on the top right of the page. Four options will appear, as shown below, with the snippet of code you need to embed the edocr HTML5 viewer onto your site: 3. Copy the embed code & paste it into your web page or blog's HTML source in the appropriate spot. 4. DONE! Desire to update your embedded documents through an API? After embedding your documents as described above, you can programmatically modify by using the edocr public REST API. To use the REST API, you’ll need to visit your account settings and generate your API key (near the bottom, under “API” integration). You will use this key to authenticate your requests to the public API. Want even more control than that? Read on... You can pack in more functionality into a totally customizable viewer using Accusoft's PrizmDoc HTML5 API: The edocr viewer is powered by Accusoft's Cloud-Hosted PrizmDoc.
