Support » Fixing WordPress » PDF Thumbnail Previews for frontend?

  • I love the new pdf p[review function via the media library but they don’t seem to be display on the frontend. They still show as the default lined text display.

    I’m making sure to select a thumbnail size via attachment display settings when inserting the pdf file but that doesn’t seem to have any impact:

    This is at, I’m running 4.7 and uploaded a new pdf file post update.

    Many thanks for the help!

  • Hi Drew,

    No, that’s not a feature at this moment. And more I think about it, the more it makes sense to me why it isn’t.

    Basically if WordPress adds PDF preview on the front-end, it will just add an image with the link the PDF file which really doesn’t make much sense.

    But hey, if you think it’s a feature people would love to have then feel free to suggest it on Trac. 🙂
