Support » Plugin: vanilla-pdf-embed » does not work with internet explorer

  • I have been using it for over 100 pages of PDFs. Suddenly no go on internet explorer. All my carefully coded pages and PDFs in media library are useless.

    Is this regarding experiencer.co?

    I haven’t been able to reproduce the behaviour you’re seeing on your site, and all my testing with WordPress 4.0.0 indicates there is no compatibility issue. Please make sure the plugin is activated on your WordPress installation — it looks like the plugin is not executing at all.

    Yes it is. I am still trying to solve the issue. It’s showing on chrome but not on internet explorer. It is activated. I sent a screen shot.

    I haven’t received a screenshot, but in any event, the plugin is functioning properly. As the plugin description details, some browsers do not support embedding PDFs with object tags. I had thought that IE was OK, but I could be wrong.

    Any way I can hire you to look at it? I’ve got a lot of people who are counting on me to get this right.. Can you email me at experiencer.co@gmail.com. I have no email address for you.

    Sorry, I am not available for hire. In any event, this is not the fault of my plugin, it is the fault of Internet Explorer, which requires Adobe Reader (or perhaps some other PDF plugin) in order to render embedded PDFs. That’s why there is a download link as fallback.

    You should strongly consider *not* embedding PDFs. They’re bad for accessibility, they’re poorly supported by web browsers, they’re bad for searching, they’re just **bad**.

    Yep but I have a bunch of scientists and physicists who love their long involved science pdfs.

    Thank you for all your work. 🙂
