A. Introduction

1. An app can be embedded within a frame on one of your website pages that allows your visitors to read special materials that you have created off-line.

2. What does a website visitor see on an app page?

The page contains brief instructions at the top and a large frame displaying the app contents (Scripture, dictionary, or other text).

138. Website page with Scripture app

a) Scroll up and down the document.

b) Navigate between books and chapters with the buttons at the top of the app.

c) If audio is included, a highlight bar moves through the text in sync with the audio.

3. Add embedded app pages to your website to make special materials easily readable.

4. Much of the process of creating a page with an embedded app is the same as creating a standard page. Review the process of creating a page in Unit 02, Chapter 3, Section B.

5. Text above an embedded app should introduce the website visitor to the material and how to navigate the viewer frame. Text may also be added below an embedded app.

6. Your Digital Publishing Manager will work with you to upload the required files so that the embedded app functions properly.

a) The page editing screen Add new Scripture/Dictionary/Reader App opens.
