Password Protected PDF File opens on webpage (2 posts)

    My site is for a non-profit organization that has some links to documents for members only. We have always used password protected PDF files uploaded to media library (all members know the password to open the docs) Since upgrading to WP3.5, I have uploaded a revised version of one of my docs (PSW protected). On my local drive, the doc will not open without the password. After uploading and linking to the doc, the PDF file opens right up on the webpage without asking for a password. I've tried several times, but the password just doesn't work! What am I doing wrong???

    OK, I found a work-around. Installed plugin "Download Manager". Still can't figure out why it wouldn't work the same way as previously, but the plugin solves the problem. Thank goodness for plugins!!!!
