PDF as attachment?

Post by dbrewood »

Is there any way to change the attachment system to allow PDF documents to be attached to a post?

That's been asked a lot over the years.
I just put PDF in the search box top right and got several results. It hasn't changed since 3.0 came out so this is still applicable

KevC's post makes it clear that it has always been possible to attached PDF documents to a post. PDFs are already included in the Documents attachment group, which is disabled by default.

Can you clarify the question? Are you want the post to display the attached PDF contents similar to how attached images contents are displayed?
