    Hi,
    What happened?
    Are you coming back with this plugin or are you no longer going to have a PDF Embedder plugin in any form?

    Hi
    I was just about to buy the pro version (for the download option).
    Is the pro version also stopped?

    Hi @doctormicro and @gilou24,

    The plugin was put under review by WP.org so it temporarily unavailable. I don’t have the details on how this occurred but have been notified by the WP-PDF developers that the required fix has been submitted and the plugin will be available once more after the WP.org review has been completed.

    The issue does not have any effect on the functionality or security of the plugin.

    The paid versions of the plugin will continue to be hosted and supported on our own site (https://wp-pdf.com).

    Apologies for any inconvenience that this might have caused.

    Hi @kukelstaart,

    Yes, I will post an update here once I receive confirmation myself that it has been released again or there is any other update on the review status.

    Thanks Emma! 🙂

    In the meantime, if anyone needs to download the latest version, here’s a link from SVN:

    Thank you, for the update.

    It’s a great plugin and would be a loss for all of us and WordPress if it went away.

    It is a great plugin – I use it on all of my sites that display PDFs. Hope the latest update fixes the issue.

    I just don’t understand how wordpress can just take down plugins without first contacting and consulting with the plugin creators. As a user I get really scared when Worldfence notifies me about a plugin that has been removed from wordpress due to a critical security issue, just to learn from this support forum that it is still save and secure to use. What is this all about?

    Hi everyone,

    Just to let you know what is going on now that I have a few more details. The issue was due to the attribution link in the toolbar. There is no security risk involved despite the WordFence notification to the contrary.

    The revisions have been sent to WP.org developers for review and hopefully the plugin will be reinstated very soon.

    Hi everyone,

    Just an final update. The plugin has been reinstated by WP.org after the code was submitted for review.

    Thank you for your patience in this matter.

    This is Great News, good job getting the plugin back on WordPress.
