  • Resolved flaviowd


    Hello everybody.

    I´m uploading some pdf files and .doc/docx files in a project.
    So, I´m inserting a link attachment file inside the loop and is working fine.

    But I need to get a specific atribute: the mimetype.

    So, I need to print the attachment url and mimetype, like this

    Download file on….file.pdf
    Fyle Tipe: pdf or application/pdf

    Could someone helpme with this.

    By the way, I´m using a custom theme and not the default wordpress theme.

    Tks a lot

  • Hello everybody,

    I looked into media.php file at line 911, and I got success using this:

    <li> Download File:
    <?php $args = array( 'post_type' => 'attachment', 'numberposts' => -1, 'post_status' => null, 'post_parent' => $post->ID );
    $attachments = get_posts($args);
    if ($attachments) {
    foreach ( $attachments as $attachment ) {
    the_attachment_link( $attachment->ID , false ); } } ?> </li>
    <li>File Type: <?php echo $attachment->post_mime_type; ?></li>

    I don´t know if this is the best solution, but anyway, this is working.

    Tks a lot
