Nice work GLWS
please show an embed pdf in a post as demo plz
Please check I have updated the working demo URL (http://codextent.com/wordpress-pdf-viewer-embed/)
is viewer custom or does it rely on google code or other similar? also does it allow indexing of pdfs?
Viewer is using a js file to embed it in your wordpress website. Please check the “Limitation” section of the plugin description.
Can you please explain what do you mean by “allow indexing of pdfs” ?
First of all I would like to thank you to launch a plugin I have been waiting for a long time.
Just one quesy. Can I embed pdf within the wordpress posts? Further, I tested the demo in opera; chrome & internet explorer. It’s working fine in chrome and opera but not in internet explorer. Would request you to please check the issue & get it resolved so that I can purchase mine copy.
Thank you for your interest in our plugin – Wordpress PDF Viewer and Embed.
Can you please let us know which version of IE you are testing the page ? This will help us to send you best possible solution about it.
Can I call the viewer from a template file? In other words, I need to be able to embed the PDF in a custom post type and pull the file from an ACF field.
Yes you can call the viewer from template file. As this plugin use a shortcode so you can use wordpress function do_shortcode() to call it from any template file.
For more details about do_shortcode() please check this wordpress documentation https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/do_shortcode/
Hi, I see from the live preview that hypertext links work (in your Email link example). Will table of content links work as well – you know the kind that are generated in MS Word before exporting to pdf?
Hi, can you please explain that in a bit more detail?
Sure. When you create heading from styles in MS Word, you can auto-generate a Table of Contents based on those headings. When you export the doc to a PDF, clicking on a number in the Table Of Contents takes you to that page in the cod. Is that type of auto-generated link preserved in your plugin? Thanks
Hi, i need to know this before I can buy. If you are not familiar with Table Of Contents in MS Word, here is an article: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Create-a-table-of-contents-in-Word-882e8564-0edb-435e-84b5-1d8552ccf0c0?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US&fromAR=1
This plugin is for display your pdf file in your wordpress website. If your pdf file has clickable table of content then it will work.
Also please check the “Limitation” section of the plugin description.
Got it, thanks for the info!
Hi, I just bought the WordPress PDF viewer. I embedded a pdf but it does not display on the page. I read the documentation, but do not understand what this means: “The Container ID is the HTML tag where the PDF will be embedded. ” I know what a CSS container ID is, but don’t know how to find this n a WordPress page.
Yes Container ID is same as you know about css container ID (Which is actually a HTML tag ID).
If you want to show your PDF file as embed mode then you have to provide a container ID where the pdf will show/display.
You can easily create a div element with any ID you want from wordpress post/page content editor (text view is preferred for HTML work).
Hi, today I purchased the PDF Embed & Viewer Plugin. It works fine if I open the embed page in IE and FireFox. But my client’s WordPress site is having an issue with it.
My client is a software developer. He has a help portal, which I created in WordPress. The site is not available to the general public, only to their clients. It is not accessed via a traditional browser window. The site is embedded directly into their software application using the .net web browser control. The problem is that when the page that the pdf is embedded into is opened in the web browser control, it opens the file using Adobe Reader, not a browser’s inline viewer. Adobe Reader has a share button that we cannot let the clients use, so as it is now, we can’t use the plugin.
Is there a way to resolve this issue?
Hi, This plugin required browser which support inline PDF to work and this what I mentioned you about the “Limitation” section. So please confirm that the browser support inline PDF.
I had read the limitation before i purchased, but this doesn’t pop up a download link; it opens Adobe Reader.
Hi, Can you please share the URL where I can check this.
I can’t. It’s not available to the general public; the WordPress page is embedded in their application. But if it will help, i can send a screenshot.
Please excuse me for this delayed ans. First of all I understand your issue completely but viewing screenshot of this it is not possible for me to check the issue.
It is a browser dependent PDF viewer. I am suggesting you to temporarily disable the Adobe Reader addon of your browser to check if it open correctly as sometimes browser addon take control and open respective file forcefully after HTML rendered.
I am getting the following error when I embed the problem pdf file in the same page as the document you sent.
Error! Invalid PDF Embed Container ID.
You can look at the link if you want. How can I solve this problem?
Yes I will certainly help you to fix the issue. Please send me your plugin configuration page screenshot.
Hi,here you can gind the screenshot links.
Thanks in advance
From your 2nd screenshot I can see that you are using embed mode but container=”” (blank).
So please provide a HTML element ID (ex. div ID) which must exist in your pdf embed page.
I hope this will solve your issue. If you are still having any issue let me know.
Yes this is the solution but can you update the code in order to create a div with unique id. Otherwise, we have to do lots of coding.
Thanks for your kind suggestion. We will consider this in our next update.
Hi, please give me a refund. The Plugin does not work. I insert the PDF via shortcode and nothing shows up.

Please email me your website and issue details at wp(dot)codextent(@)gmail.com
I bought (Wordpress PDF Viewer and Embed)
and gives me this error
and in full screen, does not show the commands
Please send me the plugin shortcode screenshot so that I can guide you to fix the issue.
[wpviewembedpdf mode=”embed” url=”https://www.test.labruschetta.be/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/menucompleto-sur-place-2016.pdf” toolbar=”show” page=”1” container=”” width=”100%” height=”100%” ]
ok I got it. When you like to show the pdf as embed mode you have specify the container where the pdf will be embedded.In your shortcode the container option has no value that’s why you got that error. Please provide any unique HTML element ID or any unique class name inside container option.
For example suppose you want to embed the pdf file inside a div element having id like <div id=”embed-my-pdf”></div> so you have to mention that ID in the shortcode container=”embed-my-pdf”
[wpviewembedpdf mode=”embed” url=”https://www.test.labruschetta.be/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/menucompleto-sur-place-2016.pdf” toolbar=”show” page=”1” container=”embed-my-pdf” width=”100%” height=”100%” ]
So please mention your desired div or span or any HTML element id in the container=”” option and your issue will be gone.
I’m sorry but for me what I wrote is in Arabic
I bought the plugin because I thought enough to choose the file and everything was done as a free plugin that I’m already using
anyway thanks for your time
I understand that if I use the short code you posted me the problem is solved
I tried it and no longer see the error message, but do not see the PDF on the page
Please send me your site access via email adress. I will check the issue and provide you the best solution.
