New and Improved version 2.0!! This plug-in has not been functioning since Crocodoc updated it's API. I finally got around to updating the API calls and it is now working as it should be.
-Display documents and images in your posts using the Crocodoc API. *Embed .PDF, .DOC, .PPT, .PNG, and .JPG files into your posts. *Supports standard pages and posts as well as custom post types.
The Crocodoc plugin will create a new input box on the edit/add post form of each desired post type. The new input box allows for the inclusion of a document that will be sent to Crocodoc for conversion when the post is published or updated. Through the use of ShortCode, you can embed the document into your post.
The Crocodoc Plugin was developed by Michael Doss of http://www.mediahive.com, which is in no way associated with http://www.crocodoc.com. This plugin is not officially supported by Crocodoc. Neither Crocodoc, or the developer will respond to inquiries or be updating the plugin on a regular basis.

Do I need a Crocodoc account to use this plugin?
Yes, you need a unique Crocodoc API key, which you can obtain for free from here: https://crocodoc.com/
I don’t see the Crocodoc section on my create/edit post screen.
Go to the Crocodoc Setting page (‘Settings’ >> ‘Crocodoc’) and select the post types you want Crocodoc to work with. The Crocodoc metabox will only appear on post types of which you select on this screen.
How do I display an uploaded attachment in my post?
Use the ShortCode [crocodoc] in your post content to display the attached document.
Control the size of the document with parameters ‘width’ and ‘height’ : [crocodoc width=”300″ height=”500″]
Why does it take longer to publish a post with a crocodoc attachment?
The Crocodoc plugin must send your file to the crocodoc api, which converts your file into html and stores it on a server, then sends a response back to your site, with information the plugin uses to associate the uploaded document to your post. This association cannot be made without waiting for the response from crocodoc.com.
How do I add more then one document to a post?
Currently, the plugin only supports attaching one document per post.
How do I delete a document from crocodoc?
You can delete documents from crocodoc by selecting the ‘delete from crocodoc’ option in the settings page, and then deleting the post the attachment is associated with.
