To embed a documents in any content article use the following code:
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 documentation http://www.mediaeventi.it/en/projects/joomla/edocs/advanced-usage
If you like the plugin remember to rate and comment!
This plugin makes use of a super fast viewer, Google Docs Viewer (http://docs.google.com/viewer).
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.
Thank you very much.
When viewed on mobile devices the viewer does not work and the pages are just blank.
I'd rate this 5 stars if it worked on mobiles too.
My reservation is that as quickly as it started working, it might stop. It seems to be an issue with the communication with Google. Also, if Google should change something, I could be left scrambling to get it fixed. I love the concept of being able to use one plugin to display multiple types of documents, but will probably look for something else.
This one was definitely the best and the support team is huge when you need help.
Good documentation on line, easy to implement.
On regret however, is that Google doesn't make available all the functionality of there engine (no audio returned from the slideshow for instance)
Thank you guys for your job.
