OBJE Web Files question
« on: April 12, 2020, 08:49:16 »
Good morning, I hope everyone is well.

Is this update designed simply to fetch image/pdf files from a url and display them? Personally I have no need for this but I would like to know if it's likely to have any impact on displaying local files? It would be  inconvenient if they don't display properly so I'd probably hold off upgrading until any bugs are ironed out.

Best wishes,

Paul

Local files are displayed as usual in my tests.
This is a deep update impacting lots of modules : the management of files wasn't centralized and homogeneous.
So a bug is always possible.

This update allows to put in FILE tags URL and not only local files.
This is useful when you download a GEDCOM files from an internet site like Geneanet or MyHeritage and you have in this file URL of images you put on theses sites.
Before, you have in Ancestris the name of the link, but you can't display the image.
After the update, you will be able to do it.
