PDF and FlipBook Loading issues:

Why is PDF loading slowly?

By default, the plugin supports partial loading inbuilt. but for that, you need to make sure partial loading is not disabled. Normally, as default, partial loading is supported out of the box. But, in cases where gzip is enabled for PDF then the partial loading won’t work.

Disable gzip for PDF in .htaccess file.

<IfModule mod_headers.c>
    <FilesMatch "\.pdf$">
        RewriteRule ^(.*)$ $1 [NS,E=no-gzip:1,E=dont-vary:1]
    </FilesMatch>
</IfModule>

Further Reading at StackOverFlow https://stackoverflow.com/questions/9249243/how-to-disable-apache-gzip-compression-for-some-media-files-in-htaccess-file

Also, Make sure your PDF is Web optimized. 50MB for 10 pages is not good for web use.. Optimize the PDF and make it as small as 5MB or less. Maybe this can be useful: https://www.iskysoft.com/edit-pdf/optimize-pdf-mac.html

 

There is a CORS (Cross-Origin) issue and PDF is not loading!

This occurs when the file and page are in HTTP and https mixed protocol. This is a result of improper https redirection. We recommend using a proper setup to redirect every HTTP request to https to avoid any conflict.

If you are using the file from another domain, make sure you have proper CORS setup done in another domain. For Apache Server, add following lines in .htaccess file

Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*" 
Header set Access-Control-Allow-Headers "Range" 
Header set Access-Control-Expose-Headers: "Accept-Ranges, Content-Encoding, Content-Length, Content-Range"

Customization

How to change thumb size for lightbox popups?

You can change the thumb size by using Custom CSS.

._df_thumb{
    width:240px;
    height:360px;
}

Custom Buttons

You can create your own buttons by using the ‘custom’ type shortcode.
[dflip id="123" type="custom"]Your button shortcode goes here[/dflip]

[dflip id="123" type="custom"]<div class="custom-button">My Button</div>[/dflip]

[dflip id="123" type="custom"][button-shortcode]My button[/button-shortcode][/dflip]

 

How to disable Zoom in Flipbook?

There are two types of zoom available in dFlip Flipbook Plugin and both types can be changed as per requirement. 

  1. Disable Zoom on Mouse Scroll: This can be disabled using the dFlip Books -> Settings -> Enable Zoom on Scroll setting. This enabled and disabled the zoom effect on mouse scroll. To disable zoom on mouse scroll set the value to False.
  2. Disable Zoom Buttons: This option will hide the Zoom-In and Zoom-Out buttons. To do so, under dFlip Books -> Settings -> HideControls add zoomIn, zoomOut into the textBox. Make sure the control names are separated by commas and in the exact letter case.

    1. Hi,
      In background color settings set value to transparent

  1. Hi! is planned that user name and password can be stored somewhere in the plugin, so that PDF documents stored in protected areas of the webspace can also be displayed?

    1. Hi,
      We don’t store user name password, yeah but you could use some membership plugins and then protect the files and page from unwanted access.

      Best,
      DearHive
