Hi

When we click on a transfert file (a PDF)  into a content view the file is downloaded but how can we make it open in a new tab instead of just downloading please?

thanks

Hi

It's curious that we need to modify something on the server.

On the same website with JCE if you put a link to a PDF file inside an article the pdf file is opened in new tab.

But the SEBLOD file transfer behaviour just downloads the pdf file. 

thanks

Hi again

even if I insert the following block inside the Vhost:

<LocationMatch "\.(?i:pdf)$"> 

 ForceType application/pdf Header set Content-Disposition inline 

</LocationMatch>

The PDF from the File Transfer field is still downloaded instead of being opened in a new tab

thanks

Unfortunatelly there is no solution, header is hardcoded to download https://github.com/Octopoos/SEBLOD/blob/master/components/com_cck/download.php#L80

You would need to use different field.

Hi,

The download.php script is used to download...

To not download a PDF file but to open it into the web navigator, it's just to display a link to the physical PDF file. A typo plugin apply on value of file field can be a solution.

Of course, this usage is only for PUBLIC PDF file. By doing this there no ACL control of the file (done by the download.php script).

Thanks.

Hi guys, 

Do you have any update about this issue ?

I think that the Upload field need to be corrected by default from this point of view... When a file is uploaded there is no any preview...
