Description

Reference : http://wordpress.org/support/topic/212798?replies=8

When linking to a file on home page wp always uses the post link and not the direct file link.

  1. Edit the home page.
  2. Upload media into library
  3. Click "show" on desired file in library
  4. Click on File URL for PDF in question
  5. Click on "insert into post" button.
  6. update or save page
  7. check the page link
  8. link now magically uses the post link and not the file link.

This is on an upgraded WPMU 2.8.1 with PHP 5.1.2 on Apache2 with the Suhosin patch (0.9.6)..

  • Keywords reporter-feedback added; gallery insert post home page removed

Does this apply to WordPress? Or just WordPress MU?

I suspect MU-only: http://trac.mu.wordpress.org/
