Optimum Documents


What is Optimum Documents all about?

Optimum Documents allows WordPress users to embed documents using either the Microsoft Office Web Apps Viewer or the Google Document viewer. Optimum Documents only requires a url parameter, but provides the option to specify height and width.

What makes Optimum different than other similar plugins is that the options given allow a user to embed quite a few more document types. Read more about the different options that the Office and Google document viewers provide below.

Office Document Viewer

Microsoft’s Office Document Viewer is an attractive way to embed Office documents of the DOCX, PPTX, and XLSX formats. The Office Viewer has a lot of neat features built into it’s UI. Because of the limited support for extended document types, we’ve included the Google Document Viewer to pick up the slack.

Google Document Viewer

If you’re needing to embed a PDF or an Office 2003 document, the Google Document Viewer provides an easy to use interface that loads quickly and contains a simple feature set.

This is a simple plugin that’s easy to use, but if anyone may need help, contact us via the support page.
