Website does not open in Adobe online document

Hi all, 

 

I have a question regarding the downloading of a file. We have created an interactive document (in InDesign) which we published online in Adobe (Ecorys Posting Guide (adobe.com).

 

We have linked the 'Share a Post' button to a file on our website. However, when you click the link it does not open it (it says Untitled and about:blank). When refreshing the page it does work but we want it to show instantly. 

 

Does anyone know what is the issue here?

 

Many thanks,

Jessin

Why are you linking to a Word file? I would recommend creating a PDF and linking to that instead.

Hi @Jessin37438365wx0j , If you want to embed an Adobe Online page in your website, you will have to use an iFrame tag with the src address set to the share link. Something like this where I have a folder at the root of my web server named PubOnline with an index.html file containing an iFrame pointing to an Adobe Publish Online URL:

 

https://zenodesign.com/PubOnline/

 

The iFrame HTML and CSS code:

 

 

<!DOCTYPE html>
<head>
<title> Title</title>


<!-- Styles-->
<style type="text/css">
	.vid-wrapper         {width:100%;height:100%;}
	.h_iframe .ratio {display:block;width:100%;height:auto;}
	.h_iframe iframe {position:absolute;top:0;left:0;width:100%; height:100%;}
</style>
<!-- End Styles-->


</head>
<body>
	<div class="vid-wrapper">
    	<div class="h_iframe">
        	<img class="ratio" src=".../images/ratio.png"/>
        	<iframe src="https://indd.adobe.com/view/c2c7aa96-405e-488f-8902-e1d96c1bea4f" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen autoplay="true" ></iframe>
    	</div>
	</div>
</div>
</body>
</html>

Hi Rob,

 

That's not the OP's issue. If you visit the Publish Online link and click the button being referred to, it links to a DOCX file. Asking a browser to display that is not good practice.

Hi both, thanks so much for your replies. The reason why I am linking to a Word file is that my colleagues should be able to fill in the document. I usually provide them with comments to improve the document. In PDF this is less efficient and user friendly... Thanks!

As I said, asking a browser to open a Word doc is a bit of stretch.

I see, I thought @Jessin37438365wx0j was referring to the Publish Online Share button in the bottom app menu
