How to create posts with PDF embeds, featured image and excerpts

When linking to PDF on the website, it could be good to create a post, as well as a media file. This allows us to feature the post with excerpt and image, for example when there is a new issue of a periodical such as Anthropology&Art. The PDF can then be embedded in the post, rather than openig in a new tab. This preserves the site’s menu and other features.

1. Create a post and assign category, ie Anthropoplogy&Art (no need for Elementor to do this – use normal WP)

2. Choose EmbedPress PDF as your block.
