Admin-specified downloads is a feature we’ve heard from a few folks, notably ALIFE and HDSR. They want a way to offer a typeset download of an article rather than rely on the auto-generated PDF PubPub produces. Often they want this because they’ve spent a lot of time in Illustrator laying out an article for print or because they have a strong branding/style that they want to convey in the downloaded PDF.
The ability to upload and set this typeset PDF has been added to the dev branch.
- Renaming the ‘Export’ button and section to ‘Download’.
- A button for Pub Managers to upload a specified file.
- A button for readers to download the specific file if one has been set.
- Generated downloads are now cached per type per version. once a PDF, XML, etc has been generated for a specific version of a Pub - we won’t regenerate that file. This should really reduce load on our workers for the more popular articles. At the moment, we don’t cache the export of working drafts.
Feedback on the language of the buttons and descriptions is more than welcome.
