Should say PDF

I'll try to explain.

In the table of content for each journal, out in the right margin from each article there should be a link saying PDF. As of late all these links say "No title" (but in Norwegian) with the icon indicating open or closed access next to it. Shouldn't it say PDF for all articles uploaded as PDFs? And where does it get "No title" from, it's not from locale.xml

My locale.xml has the following code for pdfs:
<!-- Interstitial page for PDFs -->
<message key="article.pdf.title">Portable Document Format (PDF)</message>
<message key="article.pdf.download">Last ned denne PDF-filen</message>
<message key="article.pdf.pluginMissing"><![CDATA[<p>PDF-filen du valgte skal nå lastes i denne rammen dersom din nettleser har en PDF-plugin installert (f.eks. en nyere versjon av <a href="http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html">Adobe Acrobat Reader</a>).</p> <p>Dersom du bare får opp denne meldingen så må du laste ned filen og åpne den lokalt på din egen maskin.</p><p>For å laste ned PDF-filen, trykk på linken under rammen.</p> <p>Hvis du vil ha mer informasjon om hvordan du skriver ut, lagrer og jobber med PDF-filer så har Highwire Press en hjelpsom <a href="http://highwire.stanford.edu/help/pdf-faq.dtl">FAQ</a> (FAQ=Ofte Stillte Spørsmål) på engelsk om PDF.</p>]]></message>

But it seems these are never called and so "No title" is put in it's place. In what file should these be called?

Hi Geir,

Your server is probably having trouble identifying that the files are actually PDF files. Search the forum for information on MIME types and you'll find lots of similar threads.
