I have uploaded a PDF as document into my GeoNet group. Now, I would like to embed it in a blog so that it is easily accessible. How can this be achieved? I was thinking about something similar as embedding videos...
Lars - you should be able to "@ mention" the piece of content from within your blog post and it will be linked to and accessible from blog post. You can @mention people, places and content on GeoNet, just like this... UC 2017 Industry Fliers. If you need further help, let me know.
Chris, my take on the OP's question was that he wants to embed it, i.e., view it inline, and not just reference it. I will let Lars clarify his question, but I am interested in what kinds of media/files can actually be embedded.
Christopher Catania, "@ mention" already helps as I can post PDFs as a document so that they can be found separately. But as Joshua Bixby already mentioned it would be great to have an inline view for PDFs (and maybe other formats) similar to videos, too.
I like the way this page that Christopher Catania set the UC flyers up ... the link is provided and the pdf opens in preview mode so you don't have to download it.
That is exactly what I am looking for. I assume the pattern is: 1. Upload PDF as type document. 2. Reference it with "@" in a blog. Correct, Christopher Catania?
Yes, Lars. That's exactly what happens as I described above. Sorry if that wasn't clear in the way I initially described. If you follow the steps described, the PDF will behave in the same way at the UC industry flier pdfs do. Just make sure to upload the PDF in the group you want and you'll be able to @mentioned it in the blog post. Then when people click on that pdf link they can view the document in line without having to download it. Any questions, let me know. Thanks!
Thanks, Chris! Which other formats can be viewed in this embedded way in GeoNet?
power points, xls, certain images with jpg files.
