uploading zip files (2 posts)

    I'm having a strange problem with uploading certain types of files within posts. For images and pdf files the path to the upload directory is correct however when I upload zip files with the in-line uploader the path is wrong:

    my path to uploads
    mysite.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/

    When I upload images and pdfs everything works, but when I upload zip files with the "Linked to File" option the path is this:
    mysite.com/blog/

    and of course it can't find the file there because it has correctly been uploaded to the uploads directory.

    If I use "Linked to Page" then the zip file is corrected linked, but the user has to go through another page to get there. Why would this work for images and pdfs but not for zips?

    Thanks
