WordPress Google Docs Viewer

Google Docs Viewer is a WordPress plugin by dartiss that provides multiple viewing functions related to Google Docs.

It can allow you to easily convert a link to a document so that it uses Google Docs as the viewer. Secondly, it provides a method of embedding certain document types directly into your post or page.

Google Docs Viewer

Once this plugin is activated you can easily convert a document link to be viewable via Google Docs by simply replacing http in the URL with gdoc (or gdocs if it’s a https address).

So, you may specify gdoc://www.somewhere.com/document.pdf as a link to a PDF document. When the user clicks on it instead of launching it as a PDF it will be displayed in Google Docs.

Embedded Viewer

Document can also be embedded directly into the post or page by using a new WordPress shortcode named [gdoc].

There are two optional parameters – width and height. If you do not specify any of these values the width will be set to the page width and the height as half the width value.
