Displaying PDFs on a Page

With Fillable PDFs 2.3, you can now display links to generated PDFs outside of the form submission flow. This is possible through the new Fillable PDFs block, available in the WordPress block editor.

If you’re not using the WordPress Block Editor, you can still utilize the block by using the Reusable Blocks Extended plugin to create sets of reusable blocks that can be inserted via traditional shortcodes.

Adding a Block to Your Page

  1. Open the page or post you want to display generated PDFs on.
  2. Click the plus sign to add a new block.
  3. In the Search for a block, type pdf.
  4. Under Embeds, click on Fillable PDFs. This will insert the Fillable PDFs List block.
  5. Click on the block to change the block options. Individual columns can be renamed by clicking on the column header.

Any generated PDFs found that were created by the logged in user will be displayed in the table. If no generated PDFs could be found when displaying the block, the table will not appear.
