Plugin request from Steve Brier
Via user Stefano Morello:
- What's the name of the plugin/theme?
- In a few words, what does it do?
It allows to upload PDFs and embed them into pages/posts. PDFs are automatically sized to their natural size and shape.
How is the plugin/theme different from what's already provided on the Commons?
As far as I was able to discover, there seems to be no PDF embedder among the plugins already installed.
- What's the potential impact? Who will use it?
I am working on a project for Steve Brier - https://ccda.commons.gc.cuny.edu/ - we will use it to allow users to navigate through archival material directly on the website.
- Who initially made the request?
Stefano Morello / Steve Brier
- Who is the plugin author?
- Say a little bit about the release history and popularity of the plugin. How many times has it been downloaded? When was it last updated?
It seems to be one of the most popular plugins for WordPress. It has over 100,000 installations and I have been using it on several other sites that I manage. It’s been updated to work with WordPress 4.9. More info here https://wordpress.org/plugins/pdf-embedder/
