WordPress DocumentCloud 0.4.0 supports page embed

We’re excited to announce that DocumentCloud’s custom WordPress plugin now features support for Page Embed, our lightweight, responsive viewer. Version 0.4.0 — which includes additional enhancements and bug fixes — is available for download now, and we recommend upgrading as soon as practical.

The plugin makes publishing documents, notes and now pages as simple as dropping a shortcode in your WordPress post. As with documents and notes, the embed wizard in the DocumentCloud workspace generates the shortcode for a page at the same time it creates our traditional embed code. Here’s an example:

[documentcloud url=""]

Download, install and activate the plugin, drop the shortcode into your story, and it renders the page including annotations:

Our WordPress plugin — as with the entire DocumentCloud platform — is an open-source project, and we welcome your contributions, ideas and feedback! Visit the GitHub repository or get in touch via
