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 great

This plugin works great right out of the box. I like the extra button that appears on page edit menus, no shortcodes to insert. Definitely 5 stars.

Works simply and smoothly

Yes, there could be more control given over the frame, but I’m very pleased with this. One suggestion: make the viewer choose Microsoft or Google automatically based on file type.

Doesn’t work as expected

Sounded good, looks good / well designed with simple options. However, the powerpoint slide viewer doesn’t actually work – when clicking the slide or left / right arrows the slide does not change. Furthermore, I wanted to restrict downloading the source file and although there is an option to prevent this, the native frame viewer has a download file option, which kind of defeats the point.
I suppose if you want a way to share documents in WP and are not concerned about copyright etc and downloading, then it does what it says on the tin.
