Here’s how you can still showcase your Issuu publication on your website

I got over my frustration that Issuu now charges for the embed code to get our latest print editions onto our news sites, so I wrote the code. It’s fairly simple, not as elegant as the Issuu embed code, but it works.

In a nutshell, just make a screen shot of your front page, upload it to your WordPress (SNO) site, grab the links, insert them into some simple HTML, then into the WordPress (SNO) widget, and voila.

Here’s the link to the handout on how to do it. It’s easier than it looks.

(And if you create something better, please share!)
