If you are interested in giving your online users an easy way to browse through documents before they download files, you should view this screencast demonstrating how to install the iPaper plugin. iPaper inserts a viewer on the items/show.php page in your design theme that makes flipping through a variety of document files (pdf, xls, doc, txt) a breeze.
iPaper is quite versatile, but it is not the only document viewer plugin we have available. You may also install the PDFMeNot plugin, but that only works for displaying PDFs.
Screencast Friday is going on hiatus for a few weeks. We hope you learned something new during this summertime series. It will return in the fall as we approach the new Omeka release.
Enjoy the remaining weeks of summer, everyone.
