Frequently Asked Questions


Do I need Flash to run the Flipbook?

Flash is getting stopped by the parent company Adobe. So it’s future is uncertain. Whereas HTML5 and WebGL are gaining support throughout the major browsers. These new technology power our Flipbook. So what you get is an HTML5 Flipbook, not a flash flipbook.


Do I need to have knowledge about code?

We have different plugins for different platforms and needs. jQuery Flipbook works on almost every site but requires understating of jQuery and HTML code structure. On the other hand, Flipbook WordPress is built for people using WordPress with little to no coding skills. Thus, with the WordPress plugin, creating HTML5 Flipbook is as easy as creating a WordPress post. 

In any case, you need a PDF file to create the flipbook, so the link to the PDF is all you need to get it started.


What document formats can I use? Is there any recommended format?

DearFlip supports PDFs and Images for creating flipbooks. PDFs are a very versatile and popular format. Almost every application and software support documents that can be exported to PDFs and shared.

Similarly, Images are also a very popular format in the web industry. Almost every application and browser supports images by default. Creating flipbook using images is very easy with DearFlip – all you need to pas is an array of images and your jquery flipbook will be created.

We recommend using PDFs over images for easy management and future editing and updates.


My document is huge, it has many pages and might take long to load the jQuery Flipbook?

That is a very obvious concern. DearFlip uses a very smart – on-demand loading structure, so only a few first pages are loaded to start the Flipbook. So if you have a PDF file with 200 pages and it’s sizing is more than 100MB; your jQuery Flipbook will load only the first 4 pages and only a few MB required for those 4 pages. The rest of the pages are loaded when the user flips through the pages. This method really saves your precious bandwidth.
