FAQ

Where do I change watermark settings?

You can find the WaterWoo settings page by clicking on the “settings” link under the WaterWoo PDF plugin title on your Wordpress plugins panel, or by navigating to the WooCommerce->Settings->Watermark tab.

It doesn’t work

First make sure you have checked the box at the top of your settings page (Woocommerce -> Settings -> Watermark) so that watermarking is enabled! Secondly, make sure you have entered your PDF file names correctly in the second field if you’ve entered any at all. If your watermark contains characters that aren’t in Windows-1252, choose “Deja Vu” as your font. Currently this plugin works for forced and redirect WooCommerce downloads. For redirect downloads, your file must be somewhere in the wp-content folder or its subfolders.

It doesn’t watermark over embedded images

No, you’re right. It doesn’t. You’re best to use the footer watermark only if your PDF is images only.

How do I test my watermark?

I recommend creating a coupon in your Woocommerce shop to allow 100% free purchases. Don’t share this coupon code with anyone! Test your watermark by purchasing PDFs from your shop using the coupon. It’s a bit more tedious. If you want an easier go of it (on-the-fly testing), purchase the Premium version of this plugin.

Why does the watermark go off the page, create new pages?

Your watermark text string is too big or long for the page! Try decreasing font size, adjusting rotation, or using the X and Y fine tuners to move the watermark back onto the page. The built-in adjustments on the settings page ultimately allow for watermarking on all document sizes. You may need to edit your watermark if it is too verbose.

I’m using a large font, and the line height is all wrong

Try using some <br> HTML tags in your markup to move text onto a nice new line. You may have to use several <br> tags in a row. Other HTML tags available to use in the overlay (not footer) area are: <b> <em> <i> <u> <a> <p>

My watermark isn’t English

Select the “Deja Vu” font in the Settings panel. If it still doesn’t work, perhaps WaterWoo Premium still needs some work. Get in touch.

Where do the watermarked files go?

They are generated with a unique name and stored in the same folder as your original Wordpress/Woo product media upload (usually wp-content/uploads/year/month/file). The unique name includes the order number and a time stamp. If your end user complains of not being able to access their custom PDF for some reason (most often after their max number of downloads is exceeded), you can find it in that folder, right alongside your original.

Will WaterWoo PDF watermark images?

WaterWoo PDF is intended to watermark PDF (.pdf) files. If you are specifically looking to watermark image files (.jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .png, .etc), you may want to look into a plugin such as [Image Watermark](http://wordpress.org/plugins/image-watermark/ “Image Watermark Plugin”). WaterWoo PDF will create an watermark on a PDF page but the watermark will NOT sit over image files embedded in the PDF.

Does this work for ePub/Mobi files or MP3?

No. At this time I am unaware of a Woocommerce watermarking plugin for these file types. WaterWoo watermarks PDF only.
