Support » Plugin: Google Doc Embedder » Hide/crypt file link from users/members

  • Hello,

    I installed beta version today and was shocked in happy way to see that although the pdf was embeded just fine, when I press CTRL+U on Chrome, it shows no link to the file but a crypted one (that does not include pdf extension, neither a single name of a folder from my server). Then I played a little on Google doc settings and boom all went back to normal..:( I can see the link on page code. Anyone knows how to activate back crypting link option ? I dont need people to see where the files are stored on my server because they cannot be protected if I want Google Doc to have acces for people to view it. thank you !

    I’m sorry, …what?

    GDE 2.5 supports reasonably private documents. While there would be potential ways to exploit it, none should be obvious to the casual observer.

    You can use the delivered “max-doc-security” profile or set any other profile to block downloads. The download is only blockable though in certain circumstances. The document isn’t blockable if you opt to show the download link (obviously). It isn’t blockable if you choose the Standard Viewer (Google’s default viewer doesn’t offer this fuction). As far as the toolbar is concerned, you must either hide the new window button or change its behavior to open in a full screen viewer instead of the Google Docs page, since that page contains a download link of its own.

    Is it just confusing or have you actually managed to bypass a document set to be blocked from download? Where is the problem you’re having?
