Caution! This feature can cause significant slowness.


Embed Any Document WordPress plugin lets you upload and embed your documents easily in your WordPress website without any additional browser plugins like Flash or Acrobat reader. The plugin lets you choose between Google Docs Viewer and Microsoft Office Online to display your documents.

Embeddable File Types

  • Microsoft Word (docx, docm, dotm, dotx)
  • Microsoft Excel (xlsx, xlsb, xls, xlsm)
  • Microsoft PowerPoint (pptx, ppsx, ppt, pps, pptm, potm, ppam, potx, ppsm)
  • Adobe Portable Document Format (pdf)
  • Text files (txt)
  • TIFF Images (tif, tiff)
  • Adobe Illustrator (ai)
  • Scalable Vector Graphics (svg)

Note that any documents that are unsupported by the WordPress media uploader must be uploaded to the site via FTP and then the link can be added to the embed box.

Key Features

This plugin allows you to enable or disable the download button from the embed on the frontend. Its important to note here that disabling download only applies to the post view — It’s NOT a DRM (Digital Rights Management) scheme to protect the PDF file. It does NOT stop experienced visitors from downloading, printing or copying text from the PDF file.


As a plugin that work entirely depend on third-party cloud services (Google Docs Viewer and Microsoft Office Online), Embed Any Document has it’s own limitations like not supporting video/audio playback and animations/transitions in the embedded documents.
