The Public Knowledge Project Support Forum is moving to http://forum.pkp.sfu.ca
This forum will be maintained permanently as an archived historical resource, but all new questions should be added to the new forum. Questions will no longer be monitored on this old forum after March 30, 2015.
We have an issue with people who have uploaded files into the files browser and then added a link to that file from a page within their site e.g. the About the Conference page. It seems that only people with conference manager permissions are able to download these files - readers/authors or people without a log-in just get taken to the log-in page even if they are already logged into the system.
We would like to know how we can have these files accessible to anyone e.g. without needing to have an account/log-in first.

That's expected behavior; files uploaded via the Public Files browser are not intended to be public. See http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5939&f=9
for one option to permit public files to be uploaded there; there's also a 3rd-party plugin called the Public Files Browser that's available in these forums, though PKP doesn't officially support or maintain it.
