How to embed Issuu in Presentation mode

original source here

Amit Agarwal over at Digital Inspiration has done a good job of explaining Issuu’s new Presentation mode. You should know that it’s possible to use this new mode even when embedding an Issuu publication into your own web page or blog, just as I had done in one of my posts. Though this feature is not fully supported yet, it works fairly well and is easy enough to use if you’re willing to do a tiny bit of HTML editing.

Here’s what you do:

  1. Go to the wizard and get the HTML embed code.
  2. Append a &viewMode=presentation to the embed URL.
  3. Adjust the dimensions of the embedded object to suit the new single-page view.

In steps 2 and 3, you’ll have to modify both the object and the embed elements.

<code>...backgroundColor=1b1c20&layout=grey<strong>&viewMode=presentation"</strong> />

When you paste the final code into a web page, you should be able to see a preview of the document in Presentation mode.
