WordPress Plugin Usage Guide
Embed the PDF Viewer using shortcode like the following snippet
[pdfviewer width=”600px” height=”849px” beta=”true/false”]http://full-url/document.pdf[/pdfviewer]
Why there is a beta version?
Beta version contains latest updates but may need to be tested. You can try to use the beta version of the viewer if your document could not be rendered properly. You can also use the beta version on selected document only by using beta=”true” in the shortcode.
Is this supported on WordPress Multisite?
In simple words, YES. But if you are using domain mapping plugin, this only works when your backend URL is the same as the frontend. Means you have to make sure the document URL use the website public-facing domain name instead of the multisite domain.
