This plugin is the best

I have been using the PDF Embedder plugin on my client’s website for 2 years already.

He has some PDF documents that he needs to showcase on his website and this plugin is a great solution for this.

It’s the best plugin for displaying PDF documents on WordPress websites.


Exactly what I needed

After trying multiple PDF plugins, it was easy to select PDF embedder. It is extremely easy to use and works every time. What it displays is an image of the actual PDF with 

Scroll thru the doc, select a page, open in its own container, and print. I subsequently went to the reasonably priced Pro version in order to have a download option. Please keep up the great work. Thanks..

Our PDF Thumbnails plugin automatically generates fixed image versions of all PDF files in your Media Library, to use on your site as you wish.

Note: the PDF Thumbnails plugin creates a single image of the first page of your PDF document.

You can use them as featured images in posts containing an embedded version of the PDF, or as a visual clickable link to download the PDF directly.

It also displays the thumbnail as the 'icon' for the PDF in the Media Library, making it easy for authors to locate the PDFs they need to insert in a post.

Details of PDF Thumbnails:

  • Automatically creates image version of the first page of any newly uploaded PDF
  • Tool to generate thumbnails for all existing PDFs
  • Generates a range of different image sizes
  • Use thumbnails as featured images in your posts
  • Works with Secure PDFs
  • Uses the same Javascript technology as our PDF Embedder plugin, so doesn't require any special image modules to be installed

PDF Thumbnails is the perfect companion to any of our PDF Embedder plugins, or can be used standalone!

We have used this on our multilingual sites for years. We did upgrade it to the paid version after only a few months of use. For a small price, it was worth it for users to be able to download the PDFs right from the toolbar in the displayed PDF.

Works Flawlessly. Great Value!! I was looking around for a while and tested several plugins for PDF embedding. This is hands down the best one. No shoddy coding, no spammy stuff. PDF Embedder is the real deal! Thanks for a solid plugin guys.

Great way to display PDFs. I have many PDF files that I would rather display in a post instead of provide a link. The information is more immediately available to the reader and the page looks better. This plugin works well. Thanks for the plugin.
