So why not make a separate page with it embedded?
Since it's for an archive/index with a lot of pdfs. It would be a bit crazy to make a full page for every single pdf.
People want to view the PDFs on their phones without downloading it

Is there a way to have a pdf that is hosted on wordpress to open in the browser - like a preview, instead of downloading? Issue is mainly on mobile

Discovered a very simple solution,
Add the following url before the PDFs url:
https://docs.google.com/viewerng/viewer?url=

Cross posting.
In wordpress using WAMP I can't download any plugin, and existing plugins are not loading well. Error message is "Installation failed: Download failed. cURL error 60: SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate".

I tried to Google and found that I need to insert "cacert.pem" into php.ini I did that, but still not working.

If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

That your answer, have them remove it for an hour you'll see all is good, you can ask them to tweak the settings to that those sites needed shouldn't go through their proxy

That means each plug-in their own website.

Ok, will try that.
Thanks.

Thanks MUCH!
All pull from wordpress.org, but some also pull from their own site, templates etc. so cleared those as well, and all is working fine now.

wow, had this headache for a few days, endless hours wasted. DDF always to the rescue.

Having someone build a website, and they are offering to make it ADA compliant for additional few thousand dollars. Any input if this is required/beneficial? and worth the money. google search got mixed results as regulations is vague.   
Thanks

Is it any sort of regulated field where ADA compliance might even remotely be necessary? Like, what are the benefits (other than the obvious, accessibility)

Is the website health or government related? If not, there's really no need to spend thousands on ADA compliance IMHO.
I used this plugin on okclarity

Can anyone help with a Wordpress question?

I uploaded a pdf and set the slug/permalink. I would like to be able to upload a new file and keep the same url. Visiting the permalink works, however, when clicked it redirects to where the file is stored - mywebsite.com/wp-content/uploads/filename.pdf. Is there a way to have it show the permalink in the url, so that if someone bookmarks the page and then comes back later they will see the updated file?

TIA

I'm assuming you don't want to overwrite the filename?

Not unless I have to.. (is there an easy way to do that within wordpress? or would I have to log in to ftp?)
