Good Work But...

Good Work

Complex Styling and anatomy of the plug
By , for WP 4.2.2

I'm breaking my head to customize the plugin, the CSS that pulls up from the lib-setup.php is specified to the /css directory that the plugin comes in with.BUT for some reason even if you modify the /css/gde-dark changes don't take effect.

My conclusion digging deep into the code is that the plugin hasn;t been updated lately, It pulls the CSS from Google API. which is hosted on their servers not the users. there is no way...

CSS that the plugin is using is not at my reach? it point to something like rs=AC2dHMIeE-6MbfA2snzxF2ZFrGo5aZcsWg
I just wanted to change the #d1d1d1 background color in the viewer to #FFFFFF aparently if i modify gde-dark changes don't take effect. The Plugin is using this CSS sheet... which is not hosted on my side...

I think the variables that they use to specify parameters are not friendly user... really complex

-moz-box-shadow:0 0 5px 0 #ffffff;
box-shadow:0 0 5px 0 #ffffff;
border:solid 1px #fff

Currently Having Issues
By , for WP 4.2.2

This plugin worked great until a few days a go. My issue I am having is with the preview. All of my PDF's and DOC's are showing a gray box now with "No preview Available" in the center. All the pdf's and doc's are stored in the Media library on WordPress. I am not sure if Google changed something or if it is the plugin itself. Any help to resolve this would be greatly appreciated.

Good, except viewer can download/print
By , for WP 4.1.1

Nice plug-in, but it doesn't prevent a viewer from being able to download/print the document (they can just use the popout feature). The FAQs should be updated.
