How to share open flipbooks

Jani / Tips and tutorials / October 13th, 2014


We’re proud to let you know that starting today, you can share or embed an open flipbook, showing any page you want.

Is your article featured on page 28 and you want to share it with your friends and followers? Or is there a special product you advertise on page 10 in your catalog? No problem, now you can easily share the pages you like from our flipbooks, using a special URL.  

This works for all flipbooks, not just the ones that you created, meaning that anyone who lands on your flipbook’s page can share pages from your magazines. You can also share different articles published by other people in their Flipsnack magazines.

If you want to disable the sharing options for your publications, you should first publish your magazines as unlisted and then disable the sharing options in the Privacy tab.

How to share an open flipbook

Sharing articles from magazines is easy with Flipsnack.

The page sharing link is located in the direct link page. You can get there from My flipbooks, by clicking on the magazine that you want to share, and then on View flipbook.

This will open another page, which is actually what your followers/ customers will see when you share your flipbook with them.

So what you have to do now is to flip through the magazine until you reach the page that you want to share. Just below the magazine you have the Share tab – click it. Tick the box for “Start from current page” and copy the link.
