  • Hi @timboc7

    Thanks for the bug report. Yes, I know about this problem (https://wordpress.org/support/topic/when-using-file-it-does-not-show-any-uploaded-pdfs/). The elementor has no default control for files. I will try to release a new update with custom control.

    This plugin is great, makes my site much better, however, I am having issues trying to select files using the pop-up that displays the Elementor Media.

    The files exist in the folder, I can see them when I use the WordPress Media button, but the files do not display when using the Elementor Pop-up. It appears the widget is using Elementor MEDIA but only returning images, not files.

    Is there a way to maybe use the WordPress media control instead? Any way of seeing the PDF’s that already exist in the folder.

    If this isn’t easily accomplished, is there a way drag/drop from the WordPress Media folder or other way to select the PDF. I tried using the URL presented in the folder as an external source but that didn’t work

    Any ideas on how to correct or a work-around?

    Thanks

    Searching the webs for a solution, I ran across this Github project. Maybe some ideas in the code that would help the pdf file display issue?

    I’ve learned the work-around of keeping the WordPress Media window open to copy the URL of the PDF, the paste into your URL field, but it would be much easier if your file display would include all files.

    Hope this helps

    I would like to see a solution for a dynamic link to PDF file as well, it is extremely needed.

    Hi @igalbauch and @paulproe

    I will try to release an update soon. I’m busy at work now. I will try to work on the plugin for the weekend. Thanks for sharing the link.

    The revision works great. Better than expected – it shows just the PDFs, which is really appropriate to the plugin. No need to see other file or media types.

    Thanks for the update
