Hi Francois,

You can create word and powerpoint media files and you can add that media in Guru lessons but you need to select for that media files - "Display" option as a link, not wrapper, and in front-end, the students will see a link to that word and powerpoint file.

Kind Regards,

Only files that are recognized by user browser will be displayed in browser content. This easily apply to PDF files but not .doc, .docx or .ppt, .pps files as they need to be rendered by a special program. So the best way - if you want to embed such a files is to convert text files to PDF and for multimedia presentations to video-like files. Try this service:

- Instead of saying: 'it's not working', explain the problem in detail.
- Screenshots with the URL visible in them and the problem marked are more than welcome.
- Tell us how to replicate the problem, we can't fix it if we can't find it.
- Make sure that your site/server meets JomSocial System Requirements
- Make sure to setup JomSocial Cron Job
- Always provide us with access details to the backend and ftp. We need it to debug problems.
- If you have a similar problem, but a solution you found isn't working, open a new thread instead of 'merging' with an existing one.

- Use the "Thank You" feature on any post that helped you
