Download links are great, but embedding and publishing an actual document into a post or page may be much more valuable to you and your readers.

To use this functionality on, we recommend using Cloudup. For instructions on Embedding Media using Cloudup, see here.

If you still wish to use Scribd instead of Cloudup, instructions on how to do so are available below:

Using Scribd

To get started, first create a Scribd account at You can then continue with the following steps:

  1. Once you have created and activated your account, login and click on the Upload button in your navigation.
  2. Select the file or files you would like to upload, or drag them into the upload window.
  3. When the upload is complete a screen will appear where you can change options for the document:
  4. When you’ve added the details, click Save & Continue in the bottom right corner, and you’ll be given some sharing options. Do NOT use the embed code on this screen. Rather, click You’re done. View document on Scribd.
  5. When you view the document, you’ll see a Share on social networks icon to the top right, which, when clicked will give you an Embed button:
    Embed link
  6. Underneath the embed window, click the WordPress option and copy the resulting shortcode:
    Embed option
  7. Paste that shortcode into the editor for any post or page.
