First, thank you for the great plugin.
I was wondering if it is possible to open a file in a new window?
Can I embed image in my wordpress using your plugin??
Embed Any Document supports only document files (PDF and Office files). Please check our other plugins (Google Drive plugin, Dropbox plugin) for embedding images and other types of files from your cloud accounts.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Great plugin for what i want. But i want limited download, example some post file i allow for download, but some i don’t want. There is anyway to do this? (Hide or show download button in frontend. If can not hide or show, what i can do to total disabled download? I will purchase if have sollution for this. Thanks
Thanks for reaching out to us. The answer is going to be a little long.
The plugin does not come with a native viewer to display documents. We are making use of the document viewer services from Google, Microsoft and Box.com for a seamless experience. The main disadvantage of this method is that we do not have the control over any features that comes by default with the viewer. Even though the plugin comes with a download link management feature (to show/hide download link underneath the embedded documents), users ultimately will be able to download the documents using the download button that comes by default with the viewer.
But there is a workaround that will work for you if you can use Box.com to host the files. Box.com comes with its own viewer. It is highly reliable and comes with privacy settings using which you can disable download options, add passwords, etc (screenshot).
Please let me know if have any other questions. Happy to help.
I don’t want to add work with external web host, just direct upload from my website. Is there is any code to hide download function?
Sorry, but you cannot hide the download function from Google Docs Viewer and Microsoft Office Online.
Really very nice plugin, But limited user because of this. Hope you can upgrade it. Because many business what want user read but don’t want user download. Thanks
I agree with you. I get that question almost every day!
If available, you should write that code. Then in download package (only who is purchased) have documement guide to hide download. Important is hide download documentation. Video is almost adds. No one care to allow people download. If anyone sale this stuff, they only display like 2mins for trial view
can i disable download file option and just keep the embedded file option with this plugin?
Thanks for reaching out to us.
When you are using the default document viewers (Google Viewer or Microsoft Office Online) the download button cannot be disabled.
But it is possible to disable the download option if you choose Box.com to host the files. Box.com is a very secure file hosting platform that has a user-friendly embedding system with options to disable/enable downloads, add passwords etc. You can host and embed up to 10GB of files for free with Box.com
Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Which option will allow the fastest load times? Dropbox or Google Drive?
Google Drive of course! Box.com also does it great.
Hi there, have just purchased pro version of the Embed Any Document plugin because the free version was so great. I’m having one issue that I thought the Pro would fix, but didn’t. That is that I have a ton of Google Docs queries running on every single one of my pages even where I don’t embed any documents causing it to slow my site considerably.
Activating and de-activating this plugin alone causes my site to go from an A or B speed rating, down to E or F, and 200+ requests with it active.
The site I am using it on is this:
Page with form active: http://www.enjoykorea.asia/health-beauty/dental-hospitals/
I can’t see this being normal, so is there a way to resolve this?
We have checked your site and we have some potential fixes for you.
1. It looks like the documents you have embedded are getting added to every page below the footer area. Are you using a plugin to make them load on modals? If yes, please look into its configuration and make them load only on the required pages.
2. The load time can be considerably improved if you can host your files in your Google Drive or Box.com account and embed from there.
Please try them and let us know if the issues are fixed.
Nice, thanks, yes it was the popup plugin causing it. Switched to a lighter simpler one and all good!
Awesome! Please let us know if you need any other help.
Have a nice day.
I purchased the embed any documents plugin. Downloaded the zip file, uploaded the plugin and the installation failed. Any ideas?
Please download ‘Installable WordPress file only’ from the downloads page and give a try. It should work.
Look forward to hear from you.

Hi, is your plugin compatible with the upcoming WordPress version 4.7?
Yes, the plugin is compatiable with 4.7.
HI, I love your plugin. I am wondering if a doc embedded from B ox.com can be shown full screen. As of now, when i click the “fullscreen” icon, it does not have the desired effect. many thanks you can see my site here http://mk.perkinswill.info/
Unfortunately, Box.com’s viewer does not support full-screen option. We hardly can do anything about it.
Please let me know if you have any other queries.
thank you Vidyakv. I did find this add-in and it seems to have the full screen capability https://codecanyon.net/item/letsbox-box-plugin-for-wordpress/8204640 or am I being misled? I own your add-in now and would hate to switch
Hello, I’m using Cornerstone page builder with X-theme and can’t really figure out how to embed the documents. Can it be done in any other way than in the backend?
It’s setup so that either you use the page builder or you don’t. So, edits outside Cornerstone will not work, i.e. stepping out to embed a document will prevent me from stepping back into Cornerstone with the edits intact.
We have not checked compatibility with Cornerstone yet. We will get back to you soon with any update on this.
Thanks, please check this. Is Dropr working in the same way? If it’s easier with Dropr perhaps you can refund EaD and I can buy Dropr instead?
From what I understand, these plugins do pretty much the same things, or have I missed something vital?
Dropr essentially is a plugin to access all the files hosted in your Dropbox account from WordPress. Embedding documents is an only extra option there. We have not tested it with CornerStone either.
If you would like to exchange Embed Any Document with Dropr, please go ahead and purchase Dropr and submit a refund request for Embed Any Document.
Please let me know if you need anything else from our side.
I have found a way to make it work with Cornerstone (not perfect, but it works).
Another question: What if I instead of the full embed, I would like to have an icon or image that people can click to open the document viewer? Can that be done or can you please consider implementing it?
The plugin currently does not let you add documents as links or icons. But it’s one of the popular demanaded feature that we already started working on it.
You can possibly expect the feature in our next major update.
what does Visual Composer integration imply? Will I have to use shortcode and upload the file using Media, or does it have the full flow integrated?
I’m trying to embed a PDF from Dropbox and all the time appears the same problem:
There was a problem previewing this document.
Could you please share with us the URL having the issue?
If you want to share it privately you can use the contact form on our website awsm.in.
I read from the comments that some people can use the free version to test first, well I want to test it too before purchasing. How can I get the free version?
Please visit http://embedanydocument.com to try the experience even without installing the plugin!
Please let us know if you have any questions. Happy to help.
I would like to buy this plugin, but I am a Chinese user, can not use Google, PDF function can be used to switch to pdf.js?
I have a problem with API Key to connect Google Drive I checked many time, created and deleted API Keys, even created another google drive account, nothing solve the API Error, It says it doesn’t much
What Should I do?
Usually, errors show up when the API settings are not configured properly. In that case, please double-check the API configurations with the steps. Make sure you have enabled Drive API and Google Picker API in API Manager. If it’s still not working, try generating a new API key and client ID. We really have little control over how the API reacts. It usually works fine for a second try.
However, since you have tried your best, please create an admin account for us and share the login details. We will check if there is any site-specific issue and get back to you.
Hi, I have the same problem:
“I have a problem with API Key to connect Google Drive I checked many time, created and deleted API Keys, even created another google drive account, nothing solve the API Error, It says it doesn’t much

can it be use for upload document in the user interphase, i mean can i display it on my website as UPLOAD button and if Users click it they will be able to upload document to our website. Pls reply asap
Currently, the plugin does not have an option to add the upload button to anywhere else in the interface. The button will show up only in the visual editor and only the users with required access will be able to upload and embed documents.
But we are considering it as an option for our future update. I will let you know if we make any progress towards it.
