Code not removed after deleting plug-in
By , for WP 4.2.2

I've tested this plug-in on one of my websites and decided to go with another one to show PDF's which is better maintained.

However, after deleting the plug-in I wanted to add a regular link to download a PDF file and the automated shortcode from this plug-in still showed up.

I found the source of this in the theme's function.php file, so in case you have the same problem, you know where to find it! Just delete the following code over there:

add_filter('the_content', 'addpdfviewer', 1);
function addpdfviewer ($content)
global $post;
$pattern = "/<a(.*?)href=('|\")([^>]*).pdf('|\")(.*?)>(.*?)<\/a>/i";
$replacement = '[pdfjs-viewer url=$3.pdf viewer_width=330px viewer_height=350px fullscreen=true download=true print=true openfile=false]';
$content = preg_replace($pattern, $replacement, $content);
return $content;
Hard coded plugin directory is a big issue
By , for WP 4.2.2

Plugin works OK but had to be hacked around to do so: the plugin directory has been hard-coded into the plugin, which breaks the plugin if using anything other than wp-content as a directory name.

To fix, amend line 33 to read:

$viewer_base_url= plugin_dir_path( __FILE__ ) . '/web/viewer.php';

Otherwise, still working in WP 4.2.2, which is useful.

I've tried a few pdf viewers but this was far and away the best. It does everything I could want.. except (and maybe I'm just missing something), after going to full screen, I see no button to minimize back to original size and always have to amend the url to go back to a page. Just a slight annoyance but still a 5-star job!
