  • My embedded PDF document is not loading in Internet Explorer (IE8). It loads OK in Firefox and Chrome.

    I have tried with Enhanced Viewer. This generates the following error:

    Notice: Undefined variable: curl … /plugins/google-document-embedder/proxy.php on line 32

    in all browsers.

    Switching to Google Standard Viewer resolves this error in Firefox and Chrome, but not in Internet Explorer. In Internet Explorer a “loading bar” is displayed but only a icon indicating that the file was not loaded is displayed. I have tried several PDF documents and several WordPress pages. Here is an example of my code:
    [gview file="http://www.mydomain.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/Test-2-PDF-Document.pdf"]

    Clicking on the “Open in New Window” icon in the Google Doc Embedder Toolbar opens the PDF document in doc.google.com. Reloading the page with the embedded PDF file in Internet Explorer now loads the missing document. However if I go to second computer that has never loaded the page before I still have the same problem in IE – the PDF document does not load.

    I have tried editing/re-saving the page and clearing the IE cache, but can’t duplicate the problem once the document has loaded once at doc.google.com. Creating a new page with a new PDF also loads correctly in IE on the first computer, but not on the second.

    This problem is currently preventing me from using this otherwise excellent plugin as it is performing unreliably. Any help would be appreciated.
