How to Embed a Chapter
April 16 2014 03:29 PM

In addition to Google Translate, Reading Styles, and Read Aloud is another feature available exclusively on our EPUB format eBooks: Embeddable Chapters.

EPUB chapters can be embedded: as part of a lesson plan, to your library/school website, Learning Management System or sharing within your institution.

Once embedded, your students/patrons can page through the chapter in the viewer and click View Full Title to see the whole book on the Infobase eBooks Platform.


How to Embed a Chapter


In the side panel of each EPUB eBook, is the Embed Chapter tab.


 Embed Tab Closed


Once open there are two sizes to choose from: 310x445 pixels and 465x645 pixels (let's just think of them as small and large). Select one and click Get Code


 Embed Tab Open


This will take you to the Widget Preview screen where you will see the widget code and the widget preview.

  • The widget code is what you or your web admin will paste into your institutuion's website.
  • The Widget Preview functions as the Chapter Viewer would, once embedded to your site.

If you hover over the cover image and then towards the right you will notice a navigation arrow.

Click this to page through the chapter, you can also page backwards once you're past the cover by hovering your mouse to the left of the page.

On the lower right corner is "View Full Title", when this is clicked the eBook will display in the web browser on the Infobase eBooks platform.


 Embed Chapter Preview


To copy the code just click into the code box under "Use the code below", this will automatically select the code.

Now just copy and paste where you would like it to be displayed.


Note: If you paste the chapter on your website and you see a little login screen instead of the book cover, it means you do not have authentication with us. Authentication is a great way for your students or patrons to interact with our ebooks without needing to login. To learn more about authentication options read this article.
