    Hi and thanks for the plug in,

    Unfortunately I get this error and cannot embed the file:
    "Unsupported file type"

    The url can either be something like:

    [gview file="http://docs.google.com/document/d/<number-like-API-here>/edit"]

    or

    [gview file="https://docs.google.com/open?id=<number-like-API-here>"]

    the first was a doc the second a pdf. neither was able to be embedded. Tried with both http and https at the beginning.

    I also run the server at the moment mia mamp but I believe that's not the problem.

    Thanks

    Please save your document in one of the supported formats. Google Docs API calls aren't valid as this is an external service using Google Viewer.

    See the FAQ, "Does it work with files saved in Google Docs?"
