Paperclipped PDF's and DOC's


#1

I have a client who wants to be able to load a DOC file ( or a PDF, my
idea ) and then reference those in a page.

Paperclipped will not allow those extensions.

I have not looked at the code yet. I think it might work with a small
modification, but then what would the thumbnail look like ? hmmm… just
kidding…

You can allow the mime types you want which is a preferable security
feature over allowing extensions. God knows what people could
concatenate in a file.
