I’d like access to more features and support. How can I get them?

You can get access to more features and support by visiting the CodeCanyon website and
purchasing the plugin.
Purchasing the plugin gets you access to the full version of the iPages Flipbook plugin and support.

What do I do if I get “Failed to load PDF document” error?

Sometimes when you add a book on your site and use a PDF document as a source, you might face this issue that rather than loading the book it will give the error “Failed to load PDF document”
This error shows up when you are running a website under “HTTPS” (secured with SSL certificate) whereas your PDF document link is under “HTTP” (unsecured).
To solve this issue, go to your WordPress Dashboard > Settings > General. Here make sure you have “https” added to both “WordPress Address (URL)” and “Site Address (URL)”. That’s it. Your book will load with no issues.

What is the difference between LITE and PRO

The lite version has only one limitation. You can create and use only one item. All other features are the same as PRO has.
