File attribute rename

Tuesday 24 September 2013 10:49:28 am - 5 replies

Hi to all,

I just need to keep file name during upload in "file" attribute.
Example, I upload "name_file.pdf" in a file attribute, in my website when I download the file the PDF has a unique name like 99864c22ab087582cdb0d4e911bed3e8.pdf stored in /var/ezwebin_site/storage/original/application/

I just want to keep original file name (not just label name!!).
I want that the downloaded file name remain.

Is it possible?

Hello Luca,

I use this following code to download pdf with the original filename :

 <a href={concat("content/download/",$object.main_node.data_map.file.contentobject_id,"/",$object.main_node.data_map.file.id,"/file/",$object.main_node.data_map.file.content.original_filename)|ezurl}>

file is the attribute identifier of my file attribute. 

Hope this helps.

Hi Guys,

Romain's solution work fine, but I can't view my pdf files on browser but just download them (with the old method works fine instead).

Is there a way to force browser to open files instead of download them?

Hi Luca,

try this :

 <a target="_blank" href={concat("content/pdf/view/full/",

Be careful with this solution. I'm not sure it's works on all browsers.

Hi Romain,

I found another way...but it's working just with file attribute and not with related object pdf file.

in file.ini under 


I will test yours!


Your solution doesn't work...seems that EZ make a pdf on the fly with my object.
