I have been uploading PDF files along with my posts.
I have found that sending the PDF to the editor has different results.
Using “Send to Page” I get this result:
– OK that works
Using “Send to File” I get two results:
The first one is correct and what I am looking for, but the second is just plain wrong.
I think this is a WP bug.
I’m experiencing the same problem.
One time it works fine and puts in the correct uploads directory. The next time it puts it at top level.
I did more testing on this today and it sure appears to be a wordpress bug.
I tested it using both Internet Explorer and Firefox.
I tested it with the visual text editor turned on and off.
If I upload a PDF and select:
– Linked to file, using Title, Send to Editor
it works the first time, placing the file correctly in /wp-content/uploads/2006/09/
Thereafter, if I try various combinations with the same file it’ll sometimes put it in the /wp-admin/ directory and sometimes at the top level but never again in the proper uploads directory unless I save/publish and start over.
I have the same problem and found that its a known bug: http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3117
There is a fix as well…
The same problem still occurs in WP 2.05 (I’m using the 2.05 DE-Edition from wordpress.de, hope their 2.05 is based on the same 2.05 as available for download from wordpress.org).
I fixed it as mentioned at trac (link above), but the buggy line number in 2.05 is #268 instead of line #251 in v.2.02
Will the problem generally be fixed in the next build?
