Link directly to PDF with embedding

Monday 05 July 2010 12:39:26 am - 3 replies

I have a very basic problem that I cannot find a solution for.

If I "link" to a pdf file, the link goes to an ugly intermediate page.

If I "embed" the file as an object, it will not let me put it in a bulleted list. Also very very ugly.

Do I have to hack the template in order to achieve this very basic thing, or is there some over way that I dont know about?

I am not finding anything useful from other peoples queries except editing the templates which I wouldnt have thought I would have to do for such a simple request.

Bizzare. Today I can embed an object in a bulleted list, and it works, yesterday it didnt.
Yesterday, putting an embedded object inside a table, would delete the table. Today it doesnt.

Ok, now it doesnt work. It looks like its bringing over stuff from MS Word that is breaking it. Notepad to the rescue.

A shame that I have to use tables to make a heading line up with an embedded object link tho.
Hardly what they were made for.

Yes, if you want to link directly to the PDF, you will need to create an override (or - gasp! - edit directly) embed.tpl and/or link.tpl. You will need to construct a link using eZ's "content/download" functionality - this post will tell you how to construct that link properly.
