This month there is loads more news than usual, and not much of it is easy to bear. Here in California we’ve been ordered to stay home now for more than a week. I’ve distracted myself by typing lots and lots code. It’s about time I addressed your ongoing request for a PDF watermarker that… continue reading?
If you are using EDDiMark to stamp PDFs, and especially if you are using the “redirect” download method* with Easy Digital Downloads, files will collect on your server. We do not assume responsibility for deleting these files for several reasons, and so you may want to set up automatic deletion using a cron job (a… continue reading?
A customer recently pointed out that serving watermarked files on a NGINX server needs to be done a little differently. He is using Kinsta hosting. I also confirmed the issue on a local NGINX server. By default, WaterWoo and EDDiMark try to place a PDF in the /tmp folder while watermarking takes place, then serve… continue reading?
Every once in a while we get a report that the Gift Wrapper plugin “doesn’t work.” Putting aside the fact that it’s just not enough information to help anything, oftentimes we find it’s not the plugin that is broken. It’s the theme. More and more we are finding that premium Wordpress themes (with WooCommerce “support”)… continue reading?
Sort of a long time coming, but folks have been asking politely over the years if we could build in a font uploader for WaterWoo, such that fonts could be added without knowledge of PHP. As it was, it wasn’t too complicated to hook into the existing TCPDF addTTFfont() function, but we get it: not… continue reading?
A few emails came in and got me thinking about use cases for passworded PDF files. One person wanted to know how to change the pop-up/alert in her PDF reader to let users know the password was their email address. Another person just wanted to know how to change the wording on the WooCommerce Thank… continue reading?
Big changes for the free version of WaterWoo PDF! We finally took the plunge and abandoned the pay-walled FPDI parser in favor of TCPDI, an open-source derivative. What does this mean for users of the free plugin? A couple things: 1) All PDF versions are watermark-able, not just versions prior to 1.5. This limitation was… continue reading?
WaterWoo PDF Premium comes with many built-in hooks that will allow someone familiar with PHP (and Wordpress hooks) to further customize the plugin functioning. Note, these hooks are not stated functions of the plugin and therefore are NOT included in plugin support other than to correct mistakes on our end or perhaps add in new… continue reading?
Unfortunately, we can no longer claim WaterWoo (or WooCommerce for that matter) will work with Dropbox-served files using the WooCommerce Dropbox plugin. It was brought to our attention that files are not being reliably served intact to WooCommerce from Dropbox by the plugin. Since support for the WooCommerce Dropbox plugin seems to have gone away,… continue reading?
Update March 2020: WaterWoo PDF Stamp (separate from Waterwoo PDF Premium) now allows PDF owners to keep their PDFs exactly as they are, but add a stamp. PDF Stamp is a drop-in plugin and requires users also purchase SetaPDF-Stamper software to install alongside it. Learn more here. WaterWoo is magic, but it does have its… continue reading?
