Redirect to raw format for PDF attachments

Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.


This plugin produces links to PDF attachments to go directly to the raw file, rather than the preview page and which doesn't actually preview the file. As a typical use case, upload a PDF and click on it. You will be able to download it immediately instead of having to click through the preview page.

To delete attachments, you'll need to enter an explicit URL: /attachment/realm/id/filename.pdf?action=delete.
