I’m not sure about you, but we here have definitely been weaving in and out of Space Madness lately. Never seen Ren & Stimpy’s Space Madness? Oh no! Check it out. Lately I especially relate to the gravity free bath soap scene… via GIPHY Back to Reality… Most retailers — and all businesses for that… 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?
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?
A customer asked about maybe using a customer’s phone number as the PDF password instead of their email or an admin-chosen string. Here is some example code which will get that done. Make sure to test it, and customize ad-lib to suit your purposes. Of course if you want to set the password as the… 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: WooStamper (a separate plugin 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?
You can add your own shortcodes to WaterWoo PDF Premium for on-the-fly customized watermarks. One request from a Brazilian customer was for a shortcode for the Cadastro de Pessoas Físicas (CPF). This is a taxpayer identification number all citizens of Brazil must use to shop online within Brasil. We created the shortcode [BILLING_CPF] to import… continue reading?
