FAQ

Will this include PDFs uploaded through forms?

The plugin only scans folders with numeric names, so it won’t add files that have been uploaded through forms.

Does this plugin cache its output?

Yes, the plugin scans the uploads folder once per day and saves that data to a transient. When you upload a new PDF file
that cache is cleared automatically.

Does this plugin work on multisite?

This plugin has not been tested on multisite.

Worked exactly as described. PDF’s are now included in the Yoast xml sitemap. Submitted the sitemap to Google Search Console and inspected a URL with pdf, and it was reported as found in the sitemap. Installed this plugin in an effort to set canonical for pdf. I have not had much success with creating rewrite rules and wish that the plugin had an option like “set as canonical”. Thanks anyway!
