[resolved] Embed PDF Plugin not working - "unable to retrieve ..." (3 posts)

    As a very new WP user this is probably my fault - but I'm trying to get the plugin to display my CV on my site, and it's not working - comes up with this message "... unable to retrieve the document for viewing or you don't have permission to view the document". I have not touched the default permissions.
    The "CV" page on my site (http://alanhowesworld.com) contains only [embed]http://alanhowesworld.com/public_html/Files/HOWES_Alan_Patrick CV.pdf[/embed] and the file (I've double-checked the name) is in a folder root/public_html/Files.
    My webhost uses cPanel. I'm getting the same results in both Firefox and IE.

    You're very close.
    In the URL, you need to leave out the public_html, so the URL reads:
    http://alanhowesworld.com/Files/HOWES_Alan_Patrick%20CV.pdf

    Many thanks, Pat! I can even work out why - now I know!
