Google Doc Embedder
Not Working (2 posts)

    I tried using it with a public scribd word document. All it does is display a blank line. I've tried changing the name of the document (thus changes the URL) and nothing. I also tried using Google Docs but nothing.

    Please read the documentation.

    Link directly to documents in their native format, not scribd or other translated documents. i.e., your Word document must be a literal file that ends in .DOC or .DOCX hosted somewhere publically accessible, such as your web server. [see here]

    If "does nothing" means you don't see anything, check the HTML comments for the error messages. They are not displayed inline on the page by default but rather in the page source, to improve the experience for your site visitors. However, I may change this in the future since it requires reading the brief FAQ page. [see here]

    If you've done these and it's STILL not working, then you may have an actual support situation which would require a link to the document you're trying to embed, or the page you're trying to embed it on, and some actual description of the problem.

    I'm really not trying to be snarky here, but was a developer trying to help users, it helps if users either avail themselves of the documentation or make a good report to the contrary, rather than just post "it does nothing."
