The best solution for the purpose

This plugin has received critical reviews that don’t do it justice.
It’s an excellent tool if you pay attention to the messages on the settings page and make sure your server has all it takes.

Kudos to the author for taking all the functionality others charge money for and making it work on our servers free of charge. Even without the Pro addon it’s worth it. In fact, most people won’t even need the pro addon.

By all means use this plugin and support the authors.


Gran aporte este plugin. El hecho de que las páginas del PDF tengan su propio link es muy bueno para el SEO. Genial!

Good but could be better with minor improvements

It’s a little cumbersome to use and there are a few bugs, but on the whole a good experience and does what I need it to do. I’m using the free version and will probably upgrade to the Pro as my requirements grow.

a demo would be better

the usual, here is what it would look like if you had our plugin.
take a look at everything you could have, btw… we have other addons and here are
some adds for them.

Awesome Indeed

I was searching for some secure way to display PDF files for my client and this one turned out the best one, creative design and animations and this all for free!!

Thanks a ton devs, you rock!

Nice but very hard to integrate and manage

It’s a nice plugin, but by buying the PRO pack you would expect more integration possibilities.
In fact the plugins works in a sort of “standalone” fashion and it’s quite hard to integrate with the template (you can’t link directly to the full screen mode, the archive/single page are somehow difficult to call separately etc.).
It’s impossible to sort the PDFs, because it only sorts by ID.
It’s not possible to save general options, so every time you import a new PDF you have to remember how to exactly set the 20+ options.
It’s not possible to bulk re-import PDF already created.
Only a very limited set of action hooks.
Very difficult to style the template.

So there is large room for improvements.
