I have a client who needs to upload pdf files into CMSB but not in such a way that I can use uploads and put them all across the bottom. They would like to be able to load a file in and create a link to it within the wysiwyg editor. It looks like the TinyMCE MCFileManager is the way to do that but it does not look like we have that native ability within CMSB - my question is am I missing something?

Hi Craig,

Should be easy enough. We do this all the time. The only 'gotcha' being that you need to include 'pdf' in the accepted list of extensions in the WYSIWYG editor. In the admin area of your table, edit the settings of the WYSIWYG editor's "Input Validation -> Upload settings ->
File extensions allowed: " to include 'pdf' (not ".pdf").

Experience shows that some of these PDFs can get quite large so make sure your file weight settings match your expectations.

Hey J -

Thanks so much, exactly what I needed. I wondered if there was a way to make that global across the site rather than editing each wysiwyg section within each section. Ihave 150 pages to create for this site.

Again, thanks so much, exactly what I needed.
