    i have an issue with the plugin where i have created a pdf with cutepdf and put it on a local testing server, when i display the page i find that i have a download link which work and display the file as an external link but the actual embeded iframe pdf part just displays an error message

    is this something to do the test server [wamp] i am using or a version compatibility of the pdf export version as the download link i presume it is working and picking up the document

    any ideas or suggestions thanks

    Yes, while the plugin can be run on a private test server, the document itself must be internet accessible, as Google pulls it to translate it into usable form and send back to the viewer. If Google can't reach it, it won't display. See Notes.

    Hope this helps.
