    What exactly did you try to upload via WordPress?

    I wanted to post my resume which is a Microsoft Word file. I followed the tutorial but I can't view it. I wasn't given the ability to copy the url to past into the Google Doc plugin.

    Why use a Google Doc plugin? Just upload the file via WordPress' Add Media functionality?

    I watched the tutorials through blue host and the last of 7 said to download the plug in and upload it that way. I did that and I've tried adding the file through the Add Media button and it didn't work.

    I think perhaps you misread or misunderstood something. You do not need a plugin to upload an MS Word .doc file. What happened when you tried to upload via Add Media?

    I went to my Resume page, hit the Add Media button, dragged my Word file to the window and get the link [gview file="http://dianemarinconz.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/MrncnzRezNEW.docx"] in the window, say update and nothing appears on my page.

    Shows up fine for me in Firefox, Safari and Chrome.

    It's working for me now too. I can only guess that there was an issue at Google docs. But FYI, once you upload an file via Add Media, you then have to insert a link to it in your existing Post or Page. Try reviewing Using_Image_and_File_Attachments.

    Thanks so much for all your input.
