Edocs – Embed Documents

Embed documents (.doc, .pdf, .ppt etc.) into any article! Visitors can view the document online without the need to download. Just upload the document to your server and use the code below to embed into your contents.

Supported document types:
Word (.DOC and .DOCX) | PDF | PowerPoint (.PPT and .PPTX) | Apple Pages (.PAGES) | Photoshop (.PSD) |
AutoCad (.DXF) | PostScript (.EPS, .PS) | XML Paper Specification (.XPS) | Archive file types (.ZIP and .RAR) | Excel (.XLS and .XLSX) | Illustrator (.AI) | TIFF | Scalable Vector Graphics (.SVG) | TrueType (.TTF)




Basic usage
To embed a documents in any content article use the following code:

{edocs}path/folder/document.extension,width,height{/edocs}

Example:

{edocs}documents/whitepaper.pdf,920,300{/edocs}

By default edocs consider as root the path [ROOT OF YOUR WEBSITE]/images/stories so everything you embed with edocs will have this path before (in this example the final path is [ROOT]/images/stories/documents/whitepaper.pdf).

To change the default path or to bypass it, read the documentationhttp://www.mediaeventi.it/en/projects/joomla/edocs/advanced-usage

Kudos
This plugin makes use of a super fast viewer, Google Docs Viewer (http://docs.google.com/viewer).

WARNING
It seems that IE8 has problems with the viewer used by Edocs (Google Docs Viewer is the viewer). The problem could be a matter of management of a cookie from IE8 to Google. Google is fixing this issue and soon the plugin will work fine also with IE8 without making any change. To test the behaviour of IE8 just open the demo page with IE8. IE7 works fine for the moment, other browsers too.

In this new version (1.1) a new compatibility mode was added, so when the compatibility mode is active, if a user is browsing your pages with IE (6,7,8) instead of an empty viewer, the plugin will show a link to a new page where the document can be viewed online also with IE. Google is gonna fix this IE problem, so check often the demo page with IE browser to see if it is solved.
