I'm using the Upload File field to upload a pdf. I set:
Storage Format: Filename
1 Folder / Content: Yes / 0755
1 Folder / User: No
The pdf is uploaded, but:
Is there a way to manage the Icon file image for this field ? Any suggestments ?
Setting "1 Folder / User: No" a User ID folder is created, each time a User upload a file, into the folder I set, like: .../myFolder/UserID. Please, Why ? And How to have all the uploaded files into one folder ?
I set "1 Folder / Content: Yes / 0755" permissions, but when the user click on the icon to open its own file I have back:
You are not allowed to access this file
But, Why if I set "7", read, write & execute permission to the owner ? How to have the owner to be able to open his pdf uploaded ?
1 Folder / Content: Yes / 0755 - 1 Folder / User: No = "should be uploaded to the same folder for each content", we are agree, but is not what's happening. Each time a User upload a file a User ID folder is created into the folder I set, like: .../myFolder/UserID.
1 Folder / Content: No / 0755 - 1 Folder / User: No = Is the only way to avoid this issue at the moment, in this way all the Uploaded users files are into the same folder I set.
Please, Can you confirm it so I can report ?
May be "a bug" related to the issue you yet reported...
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).
But I'm speaking about the Upload script, that by default from Seblod team show an icon link as "Preview", preview in a new window not download, or should be wrote "click to download" (at least this is what has been translated from Seblod team).
So the link shown after an upload by the Upload field, as far as I understand, is a "download link".
That should be tranformed, by deafault in that plugin, in a "A typo plugin apply on value of file field can be a solution", and being that "there no ACL control of the file (done by the download.php script)", that field should be, always by default, shown to the owner and hidden for all others users...
