FAQ

How do I add documents?

Once the plugin is activated you can find ‘Add Document’ button in your WordPress visual editor. Just click on that and follow your heart.

File not found error in my localhost site!

The viewers (Google Docs Viewer and Microsoft Office Online) do not support locally hosted files. Your document has to be available online for the viewers to access.

I have another question that you must add in your FAQ.

Great. Send it to ead@awsm.in. We will answer it as soon as we can.

Reviews

Works very well, almost did not try

this works very well, I almost did not try it as there seems to be no support in the forums or acknowledgement of reviews. While this is not required of devs, it is something I look for. That said, I have used this with great success for powerpoint, excel and pdf files(9mb) and it works flawlessly.

Just installed it… Love it!

This add-on has freed me from having to use Adobe Spark to display my content for my scripture blogs and devotionals. I would only ask that the developer consider one additional configuration feature added to this wonderful tool. Not all users are savvy enough to understand that the little tiny box with the arrows pointing to the corners is to zoom into the document, or may not even realize it is a 'document'. If we could have a way to set the default for that to be zoomed in all the time that would be awesomeness! Thanks, and Blessings, Kip - Selah Musings
