  1. I’m just trying out the limited edition, following the Youtube instructions. The preview works fine. However, when publishing, this message appears on the website (all of the default settings have been left as they were). This remains for at least 15 minutes, the preview loads in seconds
    Please wait while flipbook is loading. For more related info, FAQs and issues please refer to dFlip 3D Flipbook WordPress Help documentation.var option_df_5114 = {“outline”:[],”forceFit”:”true”,”autoEnableOutline”:”false”,”autoEnableThumbnail”:”false”,”overwritePDFOutline”:”false”,”direction”:”1″,”pageMode”:”0″,”source”:”https:\/\/www.abcc.co.uk\/wp-content\/uploads\/2020\/02\/ABCC-Journal-1-2020-Draft-2.pdf”,”wpOptions”:”true”}; if(window.DFLIP && DFLIP.parseBooks){DFLIP.parseBooks();}

    I cannot see any incorrect steps in the process. Access to the page where the item is loaded is password protected.

    • Hi Mark,
      That message is only for limited edition since they are not under premium support so they are provided with a link they can access to learn more when such issues occur.
      The message should not display for long. Please make sure your PDFs are not gzipped and served with partial content support.
      PDF and flipbook loading issues

      Also if you can share the URL to your page, we could look at it.

    • Yes, you can! You can use hideControls settings to disable the required controls, using their control name.

  2. Hey,

    I have a multilingual website. I can see there is an option under “dFlip / settings / translate” to add a translation.

    I would like to know if I can create a flipbook with buttons translated in French and a second flipbook with buttons translated in Spanish (within the same website).

    Thanks

  3. Hi, I’m testing your plugin with DIVI.
    Only type=”thumb” works as expected. The result of whatever other type or no-type, is the pdf automatically opened.
    Is.a limitation of free versione? I’m interested in the link type as you suggested above but still the pdf is automatically opened 🙁

    • Hi,

      Yes, only thumb and embedded types are supported with the demo lite version. Anything else will fallback to embedded type.

  4. Hi,
    With the full plugin licence is it possible to block printing from the PDF flip books that I create ?
    I want to protect my work from illegal downloading.
    Thanks

    • Hi,

      The plugin main focus is to display the PDFs in a flipbook format. Securing/Protecting from downloads is not the main focus of our PDF Viewer. You can remove the download button to hide the download button.

    • Hi, With Pro version you can translate the text from button to a specific language. Viewers cannot select their language and change to that language.

    • Hi,

      The plugin doesn’t have any pages created by itself. The flipbooks are in fact added to other posts and pages. So restricting those pages and posts is the main idea. Thus this doesn’t fall under the flipbook plugin criteria. We suggest using membership and security plugins to define such Rules on those pages.

  5. I’m trying out free version before buying premium. Everything looks okay with WordPress preview of flip-book, but if I publish post and then try to load flip-book, I get a message that says “Cannot access file.” I have added my PDF file to flip-book library and it works fine in preview, but for some reason won’t load after publishing post.

    Please advise.

  6. Hi- THe PDF I have loaded into the plugin only views in preview mode – when using the page link to view it does not load just keeps trying to load. Both the page and dflip have been published.

  8. Hello,

    is the Text-Link feature premium? It does not work in the free version. I do not find this listed under free nor under premium.

    Thanks.

  9. hello
    I installed your free version plugin and add a file from my pc and tried to start with your plugin but this notice is coming and doesn’t work. what do I have to do?
    Unexpected server response (204) while retrieving PDF “http://——/portal/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/PK_EN_50Hz.pdf”. See the debugging console for details (Ctrl+Shift+I in Chrome).
    thanks a lot

    • Hi,

      Those features are not within plugins scope. Our plugin focuses on displaying PDFs.

      1. You can create pages and then control the access using membership plugins.

      2. Download counts are not available. We suggest hiding the download button and using some plugin to track clicks and download.

      Best Regards,

    • Hi,
      The maximum zoom level are not affected by full version.

      You can increase the texture size to 2048(under Layout Tab) . That is the maximum possible zoom size available.
