[resolved] Same preview when changing .pdf file (3 posts)

    First of all, thank you for this useful plugin :)

    I just found an issue : when you replace an "old" .pdf file by a new one with exactly the same name, the preview generated with Google Docs Viewer is still the old one.

    The only way I found to fix this is by changing the name of the new file ... and it works :)

    Do you think it could be possible to fix this ?

    Thank you in advance, really :)

    This is simply a matter of caching. If you give Google a few hours, it will start serving the new file.

    As this is an issue with the way Google fetches the PDF, there is nothing that can be "fixed" in the plugin.
