We would like to drop an Emma newsletter into a WordPress post on our website, with working links. I've tried the "Webview as PDF", its narrow and we have to use an iframe which requires scrolling. Is there a better way to do this?

The newsletter is LONG and has many Read More and hyperlinks.  Without having to rebuild from scratch the easiest solution is to drop into an iframe but this makes it have to scroll right/left and top/bottom and its not user friendly.  Any easier way I'm missing??? 

Thanks for any help!

I have to use a PC and I have both Chrome Version 51.0.2704.106 m and IE 11.0.9600.18349

Hi there, 

Thanks for reaching out! 

So, a couple of things I wanted to point out.  

A.  The PDF's that you can export from Emma do not actually have live links, so using those probably wouldn't work for you anyway.  

B.  If you're wanting a copy of the mailing with live links, you'd need to pull the URL for the Webview from the response page.  However, I'm not sure how you would post this to your WordPress site.  You would most likely need to link out TO the Webview from your WordPress site.  

I hope that answers your questions!  Let me know you have any more questions.

Thank you Grey, Yes, tried that and I know the PDF doesn't have live links.  We did pull the URL, its about an inch wide and makes you have to scroll if you drop it in an iframe.  Its useless.  

It doesn't really help me.

Gotcha.  

Yeah, it's not something our program was built to do, so I'm not sure there's going to be an option that we offer that would work for you besides having you link out to the webview.  

If you do come up with a better plan, we'd love it if you would share!
