I tried with the following shortcode to accomplish Point-2 in my earlier message. That is, I want to create a custom thumbnail image and on click of that open your popup flipbook. But it did not work.
[dflip id="1349" type="custom" class="ti-control-play"]
<img decoding="async" width="150" height="150" src="https://vidhyar3.sg-host.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/sad_girl.jpg" class="elementor-animation-grow attachment-large size-large wp-image-1351" alt="" loading="lazy"> </a>

Please reply to my earlier message (just so you won’t miss in this thread).
You mentioned the following earlier
Elementor popups remove the content object from DOM when they do no show it.
It works for normal static elements. But won’t work for flipbook since it is complex and dynamic in structure and cannot function once removed from DOM. We do not recommend usage of third party popups for such reasons. Or you can contact Elementor to improve their popup to support such elements.
You can use our popups. You can find the thumb popup shortcode in shortcode box of post type.
Could you please tell me what exactly you want us to suggest Elementor. What content object related to your flipbook is Elementor removing and what should they do to make your Flipbook work? I guess, they would point us to you to make the plugin more sophisticated, because this is the usual pattern we observed with support people.
But from structural point of view, let’s try to understand the hierarchy. Elementor is like the foundation upon which everything else stands. Hence, Flipbook being dependent on page builders from customers point of view, I think it would be apt for Flipbook to work well with various page builders. Does this make sense?
Elementor is used to create page layout. And its valid till there.
But that does not mean that every component they have is proper. Their popup is substandard. There are way better popup plugins.
Its a good page builder and our flipbook supports elementor”s shortcode component. But we do not regard it as foundation. It is popular, but not a standard. WordPress is the standard. And even Elementors developer will agree on this.
Custom shortocde is a full version feature, it won’t work in lite version.
You have to make choices, elementor is more important or flipbook for your site. You are free to choose other flipbook plugins that work with elementor if elementor is crucial to you. Our flipbook won’t work with popups that remove the the content from the DOM. So it’s up to you to make the choice.
Also, I have mentioned before that using multiple flipbooks will make the page heavy and crash the page. So if you use elementor popups they all use embedded flipbooks. And they cannot dispose the Flipbook object. Thus even if elementor fixes the DOM removal issue. Your page will crash. YOu will be loading all the PDFs in those flipbooks in that page.
In short, you can spend time discussing with us, or follow our suggestion. We have been developing flipbook for years and we know what issue can come with third party popups. Thus we do not suggest them. So if you believe us, you will be saving time.
Thank you so very much for all the support you have provided in this thread. I am impressed. Flipbook free version in itself is also good.
I am trying to see if it would be possible to add sounds to the flipbook wherever there are pictures. For example, in my sample flipbooks that I uploaded, there are dogs in one page. And on hover of mouse over the picture (or) even when that page has just opened, I want it to produce sounds.
Will it be possible to do that.
In have go through the wordpress Flipbook plugin features (both free as well as premium versions), but I don’t see this feature although there is something close like PDF links:
From what I have seen in features, it looks like the requirement that I am looking for (playing sounds.. as this website is for kids) is a far-fetching thing.. completely out of the boundaries, right?
It is totally normal to seek possibilities from a customers perspective. We tend to develop a solution/plugin that is generic/general in purpose and extendable to some extent. In General this plugin displays a PDF in 2D flipbook format and 3D flipbook format. Even the regular scroll reader is just developed and pending release.
If there are further requirements, some customers use our callback functions and add their required functionality into the flipbook.
Thus speaking from general sense, adding sounds to different pages is not available by default. Regarding extending the plugins to do so, detecting dogs and mouse and then playing the sound – may not be possible. But setting certain sound to certain pages, might be possible by custom development – depending on the developer you have.
Most of the times customers compare our plugin with publisher flipbook solutions, like issuu.com , fliphtml5.com that might provide all these things. But we developed this plugin from a PDF viewer perspective, thus this difference.
From my experience, this plugin used to provide sound play in certain links. But don’t find that feature/demo now. It is a jQuery plugin. https://codecanyon.net/item/magalone-flipbook/17515219

I have noticed one weird problem since I implemented your flipbook. I go to any page (other than the page where flipbooks are embedded), and click on right/left arrows in keyboard, then it is giving flip page sound. How to prevent that?
Are you having a flipbook inside a third party popup. Then there is an active embedded flipbook running. You can share the link to your page where that issue occura and we will check it.
I did not use any third party plugin. Here is the link
Looks like you are using ajax for loading content.
Your old flipbook will not be removed from memory. They will stay in your browser tab. Only page reload can remove the object from memory.
Ajax does look fancy, but in long run, it will accumulate the object sin memory and make the page heavy. Use a clean design and load the pages fully so that your page doesn’t crash.
If you do plan to use ajax, another plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/interactive-3d-flipbook-powered-physics-engine/ uses iframe to load flipbook. And they work better in such cases.
We do not use iframe to display flipbooks due to loading issues.
Ok. Thank you for clarifying that.
Can your Flipbooks be used by Text to Speech plugins like ResponsiveVoice Text to speech, TTS Engine, TTS Engine, Text to Speech etc.. ? Will they be able to read content from your flipbooks? Please clarify.
No, text itself is not available in the output so text to speech wont be possible
