Upload PDF and Create FlipBook

Estimated reading: 3 minutes

As this is an Add-on of TNC FlipBook – PDF viewer for WordPress you can’t upload PDFs with this. To upload PDF files and create a FlipBook you first need to do that with TNC FlipBook – PDF viewer for WordPress. Follow these steps to create your first FlipBook and if you are already a user of TNC FlipBook – PDF viewer for WordPress you can skip this step.

  1. After installing and activating TNC FlipBook – PDF viewer for WordPress, Navigate to TNC FlipBook> Add New Menu
  2. Put a title for your FlipBook, Keep it relevant to your PDF file as it will be used as the viewer title and while embedding using shortcodes.
  3. In the next section under FlipBook Settings > Basic Settings Upload the PDF file you want to use
  4. Select Page Mode. The default will be fine in most cases.
    1. Default will open Default FlipBook
    2. Thumbnails will open with displaying page thumbnails on the left side 
    3. Bookmarks will open by displaying Bookmarks on the left side
    4. Attachments will open by displaying attachments on the left side
  5. Default Zoom: You can set your preferred default zoom level for this FlipBook on this input
  6. Default Scrolling Mode: You can set your default scrolling mode here. Vertical, horizontal, wrapped or Flip.
  7. Default Spread: Set your preferred default spread here. 
  8. Viewer Language: Select your preferred viewer language here.
  9. Jump to page: Enter a page number here if you want to open/jump to a specific page.
  10. Now, go to Toolbar Elements Tab
  11. The first option here is to Use Global options, It’s enabled by default. If you need to hide any specific toolbar elements like download, print and others, you can disable this option and a list of toolbar elements will appear to enable or disable. I am not going through all the toolbar items here as all those are self-explanatory.
  12. The next tab is the Appearance
  13. We have a use global setting option here as well. Disable the global option only if you want to have a different theme/color setting for this specific viewer. Not going through the details here as well, you’ll understand by titles easily.
  14. The next Tab is Privacy/Security
  15. You don’t have to do anything on this tab. If you purchase WP File Access Manager, you’ll be able to manage the restriction settings from Media > File Access Manager Menu.
  16. Once you’re done with all the settings, click on Publish button on the right sidebar
