Our site went down several times today, we were doing some maintenance, I think you tried to open the link around that time. If the reason is latency due to server-server communication, that is a possibility. Because I tried once more again to view your demo, there was a moment when I did not see anything, just a blank page until I reloaded. May be this also depends on the type and version of browser one is using! Possibly.

How do I attach a pdf?
The same way you attach an image. Use attachments facility, native.
Simply attach your PDF as usual and place it inline, it will be automatically embedded.

Ask there in the Support forum about that, is not related to this extension. Thanks.

sorted it.
Whilst I appreciate its beyond your extension to help, by default phpbb doesnt allow pdf's to be uploaded so it wouldve been more helpful to have told me how to do this. wouldve taken you 2 mins to type instructions.
but thanks anyway.

It would have taken you 2 more seconds to review your posts for typos, so to speak, isn't? :)

And probably yes, but the basic of having a software is to understand it by reading the manual (RTFM) first.
In this case of phpBB https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/
And seek support if something is not clear or not working, in the devoted venue.

Here we are providing support for our extension itself, that's not the phpBB's support forum.
Imagine I have to educate each and every user, that's a no-no to begin with. Hope you'll understand. ;)

without wanting to argue with you, your extension does not work unless pdf is selected as an option to upload which is not selected as default.
And I think your english requires more work than mine.

Ill leave it there. Good day sir

I guess there's no answer required to that any more. :P
The year is 2192. The British Prime Minister visits Brussels to ask for an extension of the Brexit deadline. No one remembers where this tradition originated, but every year it attracts many tourists from all over the world.

Is possible to embed only attachments placed inline in text? Other pdf attachments leave unchanged as normal links in attachments box. Thank you.
