I think this is an idea for a new plugin...

All my users as well as anonymous can upload images to the forum using the WYSIWYG editor. The upload is restricted to images only.

However, some of my experts create professional documents in PDF format.

1. They should upload their PDFs on a separate page, saved as blob into the blob-db-table (qa_blobs).

2. Every expert should see a list of all uploaded PDFs to get the link from.

3. It would be great to have another filename than domain.com/?qa=blob&qa_blobid=17474948105245553660 maybe something like: domain.com/documents?pdf=17474948105245553660

Anyone likes the idea, and is interested?


FYI, I am using the plugin for some months, and still extending it. E.g. now you can upload XLS and DOC as well. But there are still some features missing, such as "replace file with newer version" or "delete file" (by user) and others. Report back when it get more advanced and ready for release.
I would be interested in the the plugin, because I want a nice way for PDFs (and if possible powerpoint files) to be easily uploaded and displayed. I just posted a question here:

If you have many experts with many uploads, is the workflow with an extra page for the upload practical?
1. upload file
2. get the link
3. write the post and include the link

have you implemented your embed suggestion of http://www.question2answer.org/qa/27420/show-content-link-url-like-embed-plugin-with-youtube-videos ?

would be interesting to have a look at it, if an example page is only?
yep, plugin exists and is in use in one of my forums. However, it is not released yet due to lack of time. If you are interested, please send me a private message.

Can this plugin be released or at least posted here?
