Change or add a PDF to a published article

Postby radjr » Thu Jan 17, 2013 1:23 pm

Hello-

I am trying to add a PDF file to a published article. I don't want to add a supplemental file but the original layed out galley. I see where we add supplemental files, but where to add/change the primary file. I did use the quick import file originally...and forgot to click the "upload" button when creating the article.
Thanks,
radjr

Hi radjr,

You need to upload the file as a Galley.

Hi,
I don't know why I was banned I suppose I should have opened a new topic instead of answering this which is somewhat old
However without a warning it is not very helpful.
Thanks for the answer anyway.

Hi berserk,

My apologies -- we often get spammers registering here, and often they'll post "thanks for the information" or "please help with the same issue" messages to attempt to establish an identity before spamming begins. Occasionally we will accidentally ban a legitimate poster by accident thinking they are one of these.

Hi Alec-
I am a bit confused as this seems to be a two-fold problem. First, we want the ariticle to be available as a .PDF file. Second, when we get the former working, we have a situation where we get a white box on the webpage and the PDF does not load in that box. We have to click on the link to the upper right to download the PDF. Suggestions?

Thank you, Rich.

Hi Rich,

Did my suggestion to upload the file as a galley solve the first problem? For the second, can you post a URL or a screenshot?

Well, seems that this does come up if you wait long enough on my work PC. The laptop seems to block running the PDF viewer and hence the red image not found icon. Thank you.

I guess we can fence this issue for now. Thank you.

Well guess we need to look at this after all. Attached is the screen shot from a win7 laptop when trying to read an article on one of out journals. I don't get this. Your help would be appreciated. Thanks,

Hi radjr,

Are you using custom article or galley identifiers?

No. everything was stock as I am a newbee. The PDF comes up on my work winXP system with Acrobat 9.0. The machine that it fails to display on is an hp laptop running Win7 and acrobat reader 9.x. What are you calling to display this PDF in the window? Thank you.

Hi radjr,

Looking at your journal setup, you've got PDFs behind a login. I wonder if your Explorer security settings are configured in such a way that the request for the PDF file is not providing the login cookie back to the server -- effectively, the browser is not identifying itself when asking for the PDF file, so that request is returning the login page. Try different security levels in your IE configuration and see if that resolves the problem (for you).
