    Having trouble using this plugin. I go through the documented procedure to publish to a page and I get the above error when I inspect the source code.

    Here is my embedded code that I use:

    [gview file="https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0As7_5YBWFE_ydEZiOGp4ejdFS3hLcTNKa2Q5anFMZUE&hl=en&authkey=CPHkrv4K"]

    Please put your file in an acceptable format. Note that Google Documents are NOT included in the list of supported file types. I recognize this is confusing, as the plugin uses the Google Docs viewer. But if you place the file as an XLS on your wordpress site, for example, you will find it to function much better. Files stored literally in google docs have multiple layers of security and sharing that complicate the process. My plugin therefore only utilizes the viewer and does not integrate with google docs itself.

    You could try the force="1" option (or turning off error checking in Advanced Options) but I doubt this will work. The embedded viewer is not designed to function in this way on third party sites, and that is what my plugin utilizes to function.
