How to embed into Joomla

Product: FlippingBook Online

Embedding a flipping book on Joomla can require more steps than the standard embedding on the other website platforms like Wordpress or Wix.

Note! If you’re using a non-standard Joomla editor, just try to follow our general embedding guide. However, if it’s not working, please proceed with the following instructions.


The standard Joomla editors do not process FlippingBook embed code correctly. Of course, if your article or post made on Joomla would only consist of a flipbook alone, you can just turn off the editor completely, but usually, a book needs to be complemented with a bit of nicely formatted text, and that’s easier to do so in a WYSIWYG editor.

Note! If you are not an administrator user, the installation and customization options mentioned in this article might be unavailable to you. In that case, please consult with your Joomla administrator.


In this article, we show how to embed an example publication using two custom editors - ARKEditor and RokPad.

Installing and enabling custom editors (ARKEditor or Rokpad) in your Joomla space

Generally, Joomla editors can be found and downloaded from the Joomla Extensions Directory, but here are the direct links to ARKEditor and Rokpad for your convenience:

ARKEditor: https://arkextensions.com/products/ark-editor#download (the Free version is more than enough for embedding needs)

Rokpad: https://rockettheme.com/joomla/extensions/rokpad 

Here’s how you proceed after finding the page of the extension you need to install: 

  • Click the download button on the extension’s page to get its installation .zip file.
  • The extension can then be installed in your Joomla Control Panel, in the Extensions section. 
  • Select Extensions -> Manage -> Install option on the top bar:
  • Drag and drop the .zip file with the extension you’ve downloaded from the Directory and wait until the installation is complete:
  • Proceed to System -> Global Configuration section via the same top bar:

  • Change your Default Editor in Site Settings - it will now be used for creating new articles:
  • Click on Save to apply the changes:
