LInk to pdf file in Page (2 posts)

    I can not get a link to a pdf file within a "Page" or "Post" to work correctly. When anyone clicks on the link it takes me to another part of the server/site. I've googled and read lots of posts on this forum but have not yet seen a solution. Can someone please tell me if this is in fact a bug or am I doing something simple incorrectly. It seems like a rather basic feature? Any suggestions how to fix it or what might be the cause of the problem would be most welcome.

    I've tried several browsers on both Ubuntu Linux and XP, same result.

    Thanks

    Jim

    it is indeed a bug
    some folks say you can get a work around by doing url like so:
    file:http://domain.com/whatever.pdf
    or
    file://domain.com/whatever.pdf
