  • The viewers can handle files of a limited size only (Maximum 8MB for Google Docs Viewer and 10MB for Microsoft Office Online)

  • The download and pop-out buttons cannot be removed – Any feature that comes by default with the viewers cannot be removed or altered

WP 6.2; Kadence Theme; Displaying several long or short PDF docs. Problem: Docs will not load unless ‚reload docs‘ clicked at bottom of display area.

So I tried 2 other options for displaying docx etc this was by far the neatest particularly because it doesn’t need to keep a separate list of docs and pdfs. Shortcode is entered directly in the content panel. No need to ever copy and paste. If you are using elementor you will need to manually copy this shortcode and enter into a „shortcode“ widget on your elementor page. Or in my case copy it into a custom text field for elementor to dynamically pick up. Works perfectly. Thanks

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
