How simple can it be? Simply add short-code around the link to your uploaded PDF. Works perfectly with multiple browsers.

I tested this in both chrome and firefox, it's fine. I'm so excited there's a plug-in for embedding .PDFs and it was super easy. Thank you!

Works, sort-of

It seemed to work okay for the most part. However, the right side extended into and was overlapped by the sidebar contents. I tried wrapping the shortcode with an HTML <div> and adding a right margin. But, that didn't help at all.

The author attempted to address the issue by suggesting a problem with in the theme. But, that's not it. However, it could be incompatibility between the theme and this plugin. If so, the problem will likely occur with other themes. The author also inquired about tweaking attributes of the plugin's shortcode, which I had not. If interested, you can read the details in the comments for this review.

At first, I thought this plugin creates its own implementation of the "[embed]" shortcode. But, instead, according to the author, the plugin manipulates the functionality of the "[embed]" shortcode built into WordPress (the Core). I voiced a warning to the author about how doing this can turn South (go bad) in a hurry as future updates to WordPress Core functionality compounds. The bad part is that if the plugin breaks due to this, it would likely affect any site-wide content using the "[embed]" shortcode and not just implementations of this plugin.
