How to have external webpage on post (4 posts)

    Is there a way to have an article from another website actually show up on a post rather than just a link to it? Or if I have a pdf of an article can I make that show up on a post rather than a link?

    You can use the "embed PDF" plugin,
    upload the pdf to your media, get the path or URL,
    and use the [embed]url: path to pdf [/embed]

    Here is in example for you of an embedded pdf:

    Thank you. I tried this and for some reason I could not get it to work. I am sure it is me. I have the pdf in my media file. I upload the media and it gives me options. I can say custom url, media file or attachment file. I tried all 3 options and brought them in. They look like this and I put the code in like you suggested. <[embed]a href="http://www.voluntournow.org/worms-produce-another-kind-of-gold-for-growers-3/worms-produce-another-gold-nytimes-color/" rel="attachment wp-att-709">Worms Produce Another Gold- NYTimes color[/embed]

    The page did not load. Do you see any obvious mistakes? Not sure what I am doing wrong. Thank you for your help.

    Do not need to add to the page through the media.

    [embed]a href="http://www.voluntournow.org/worms-produce-another-kind-of-gold-for-growers-3/worms-produce-another-gold-nytimes-color/NAME OF PDF.PDF[/embed]

    in your html (text) editor for the page.
