Bug Description


When you embed a PDF using the PDF block and export your page as HTML export, the PDF is exported, but it is not displayed on the resulting HTML page like it is in the normal portfolio page.

You can still access it via its details page.

Where having the same issue and it could become quite a turn off for some of our academics - potentially affecting 200 student portfolios.

It's clear what the problem is. We display PDF's inline using the PDF.js library ( http://mozilla.github.io/pdf.js/ ). When we export to HTML, we don't include that library as part of the export.

So what we'd need to do, to fix this, is include a copy of PDF.js with the HTML export, and wire up the HTML to use it properly.
