Plugin work nicely and is not complicated.... However, when adding a PDF document, the path includes the full URL, making it break all PDF links when migrating to another domain The author should consider adding support for relative paths

It works like a charm, and it does not only what it says.. it does better, as it is extremely flexible, and with shortcodes (that you can find in the web), you can insert documents in different ways and modes I just love it
