I currently have the above add on and several others for wpforo.  I am now attempting to create a topic (area) that I can have people embed an excel spreadsheet into the topic and can be edited within the topic.  Not continuously being edited outside of the forum and then uploaded back in.  Is this possible?  Thanks.

Hi@jamesbay

We're really sorry, but neither wpForo Embeds nor wpForo Advanced Attachments add-ons have such feature. However, we’ll take this into consideration for sure.

Currently, we may suggest you find some pdf/word/excel reader plugin that may make the integration with wpForo Advanced Attachments add-on.

Thank you for the response.  Can you please explain "Currently, we may suggest you find some pdf/word/excel reader plugin that may make the integration with wpForo Advanced Attachments add-on." means?  Do you know if a plugin that would work with wpforo and your addon?  I don't want to screw up my site.

@jamesbay,

We've found the following two plugins: 

  1. Office Viewer – Embed MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Other Office Doc 
  2. Document Embedder – Embed Word, excel, Powerpoint, Pdf and more..

Just make sure the "WordPress Shortcodes in Post Content" option is enabled. It's located in the Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Features Tab.

Thank you very much for the help with this.  I looked at both.  I suppose I could test both...but wondering if you knew if users could EDIT the embedded document and it will save automatically.  I am basically looking to establish a private forum for select people to continuously update a spreadsheet.  Thanks again.

 

FYI - I have your POLLS add on.  This is very useful, but unfortunately, there is a limitation to the amount of answers you can have.  That is why I cannot use this addon for what I am looking for.
