Hello fellow OJS-Users,
after upgrading from version 188.8.131.52 to 2.4.3 we experience problems with the display of pdf files. We don't use ojs for publication yet but only to manage the workflow process, so my experience with the rendering of PDFs comes from the "create issue -> preview" function. Whenever I click on a pdf-link the plugin starts (in firefox at least), but stop displaying the file inline because it complains about the file not being valid pdf. Curiously the plugin saves a file called "Untitled.pdf" in my home-directory, and when I take a look at it with my editor it's plain html. We still use the older 184.108.40.206 version, where pdfs diplay as they should. I also tried the inline samples at http://pdfobject.com
, where my plugin nicely embeds the pdf within the page. Can somebody help me please, because I really have no more ideas where to look for the fault. By the way, our installation runs on SuSE LS 11 SP 3, php 5.3.17 and MySQL 5.0.96. I migrated OJS applying the appropriate patch and then used the tools/upgrade.php. Could somebody please point me in the right direction?
