I wrote a document / manual and was looking for a solution that would allow me to release it to members securely. I decided to go ahead with the option of reading the document directly on my website. PDF poster is great for that. Not only the viewer looks nice but also security options like no download, disabling text selection and right-click are very useful. I definitely recommend it.

This is a fantastic plugin for displaying PDF files on your WordPress website. Don't waste time looking for other plugins, i did and found this one. I only wish i found this plugin first, easy to use and works everytime.

Unlike the major embedded pdf viewers (like Google) PDF Poster pro enables viewing only mode. If you are looking to show pdf but not to share it, have a look at PDF Poster pro. You can control save, print and even copy/paste options. Even the filename is not exposed to the end-user. Add some nice features as zoom, rotate and search and you don't want to use the free Google embedder. On top of this all: the support is awesome.

Looks ok.. A little confusing with demo.. I preferred just the download button without full PDF screen showing unless I clicked the button to view it. I am new to this so maybe I set it up the wrong way. Skeptical to try the pro version if its easier.

What I really like is how simple the interface is -- which makes it easy for the beginner WordPress users that I coach at the senior center! It does not conflict with other plugins we have installed on their websites and being able to customize the size of the viewer without needing to use CSS is great! Thank you!
