Download or Embed Any Document
I have had students asking me which is the best download or embed plugins for WordPress. I have experienced some good plugins and for a while I used ‘Download Monitor’ and ‘Vanilla PDF’.
Of all the download and embed plugins for WordPress the best for me is ‘Embed Any Document’ due to the following reasons:
- It supports Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, PDF, etc…
- so easy to install and activate
- so easy to add a document to any post or page
- IT WORKS!
I now only use ‘Embed Any Document’ and this plugin is the one I recommend to my students. Should you wish to install ‘Embed Any Document’ follow the easy steps below:
Go to your Admin Area > Hover over Plugins click ‘Add New’ > in the search bar enter ‘Embed Any Document’ > read Details and then click ‘Install Now’ > click ‘Activate the plugin’
Go to ‘Settings’ > click ‘Embed Any Document’
General Settings: Decide the settings you need > click ‘Save’
Hover over ‘Posts’ > click ‘Add New’
Click ‘Add Document’ button (refer image below):
Click ‘Upload Document’ > Go to ‘Upload Files’ or ‘Media Library’ > click the document you want >
On the right side bar ‘Attachment Details’:
Gallery Link Target choose ‘New Window’; Gallery Link OnClick Effect choose ‘Keep’ > click ‘Insert’ button.
On the new panel that opens on ‘Viewer’ decide between ‘Google Docs Viewer’ or ‘Microsoft Office Online’ > click ‘Insert’.
Publish your post or page.
