PDFs are frequently shared in discussions at our forum. There are two issues with the way the File Upload plugin handles these:
- The thumbnail is a generic icon rather than a preview of the first page of the PDF. http://up.stewf.com/image/11020e2l1V1j If a thumbnail with a preview cannot be generated the icon should be much smaller since the image is not useful.
- Browsers do not recognize the file as a PDF so they download the file rather than opening it in the browser like most PDFs.
- Files are not downloadable by the public. We would like our PDFs to be viewable to forum members and non-members alike.
