Support » Plugin: PDF Embedder » Previews take a long time for fail to load.

  • I used the premium version of this plugin for about six months. People who accessed the pages using this plugin would see “loading” for long periods and some would fail to load. I had more than six PDFs on a page. If I only had one it was no problem. This plugin is a resource hog. Previews should be cached but it appears they are generated on the fly. I finally created thumbnails using Photoshop and linked to the PDF with a simple javascript that works great.

    Hi montanan,

    The PDF Embedder doesn’t load a preview of the PDF but the entire document. The PDF scripts themselves are quite light. If you have multiple uncompressed PDFs on the page, they are all going to load at once and may create issues for your visitors as you’ve experienced. If you want to add multiple PDFs on a single page, we recommend using a thumbnail image and link the image to the PDF’s attachment page. Please see the following tutorial:

    If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to send us an email to as we may not see the forum posts in a timely fashion and Premium customer receive support via email and not the WP forums.
