  1. Copy the HTML snippet. You will use this snippet to display the uploaded PDF document on your Squarespace website.
  1. Log back into your Squarespace website and click "edit" on the page where you want to add the PDF viewer.
  2. Now click the "+" icon and select "Embed". Then click on the right icon in the input box that says "Embed Data" and copy the viewer code into the text area. Make sure to change the width in the snippet to "100%" so that the viewer will be responsive.

Note: after you added the embed data you might see in Squarespace editor the message "Script disabled." You can ignore this message and save the page. Once the page is saved and you preview it, you will see that the viewer is rendered successfully. The message appears because Squarespace does not allow for external javascript to be executed while in "edit" mode

  1. You will see that the CloudPDF viewer is ready to use.
