PDF Viewer window - How to disable

Postby mtorman » Wed Mar 17, 2021 8:02 pm


In Wing FTP Server v6.3.8 (18/Jun/2020) you introduced a PDF viewer in the web client, allowing the user to view the PDF file online by double-clicking it.

We just updated to 6.3.8, and this change is causing many of our older users problems, since double-clicking on PDF's USED to download the file. Now it opens in a window they aren't familiar with. Many users are saying that they can't properly print from this window either.

My question is - Is there any way to DISABLE the PDF Viewer feature, or somehow control the default double-click behavior of the web client?

For the latest version 6.5.0, you can modify the file "webclient/main.html", and remove (or comment) the line 1910 - 1918.
