Google Docs

While you can display a document on your site by uploading it, you may also do so using its iFrame code if it is a Google Doc. Here’s how:

  1. Make sure the document is public
    1. On the view screen of your document, click the Share button on the upper left corner
    2. Click Advanced
    3. Under Who has access, click Change… and select either On – Public on the web or On – Anyone with a link
    4. Click Save, then Done
  2. Get the iFrame code
    1. On the view screen of your document, click File > Publish to the web
    2. Click the Publish button.
    3. Click the Embed tab. From there, you may copy the resulting iFrame code.
  3. Paste the iFrame code into the text editor of the page on Aurora.

  • Microsoft Word (docx, docm, dotm, dotx)
  • Microsoft Excel (xlsx, xlsb, xls, xlsm)
  • Microsoft PowerPoint (pptx, ppsx, ppt, pps, pptm, potm, ppam, potx, ppsm)
  • Adobe Portable Document Format (pdf)
  • Text files (txt)
  • TIFF Images (tif, tiff)
  • Adobe Illustrator (ai)
  • Scalable Vector Graphics (svg)

Embed DocumentOn the edit screen of a post or page, you can embed a document by clicking the Add Document button that appears above the content editor. Then click Upload Document, and you will be able to either choose an existing file or upload a new file.
