      Description

      Right now, when you link a document from WebContent article, the URL to Download the file is inserted into the content, like:

      • /documents/10180/0/Word+edit+online.png/53c60475-110d-45ca-8076-b3321d64b9d6?t=1364396336239

      It's handled by Web Server Servlet and the document is immediately served by browser to the user. It would be very nice to give the user possibility to insert a "Document Detail View URL" instead == link to something like Documents and Media Display portlet with file in it. Then the URL in WebContent would be like:

      • /web/guest/documents?p_p_id=110_INSTANCE_xtEddPTcqL2S&p_p_lifecycle=0&p_p_state=normal&p_p_mode=view&p_p_col_id=column-1&p_p_col_count=2&_110_INSTANCE_xtEddPTcqL2S_struts_action=%2Fdocument_library_display%2Fview_file_entry&_110_INSTANCE_xtEddPTcqL2S_fileEntryId=10636

      This would be much more user friendly – because of Liferay's rich conversions in DL, user would most likely see a preview, then can decide whether he wants to download the file (e.g. long MS Office Word document). User can also view different versions of files this way, comments on file etc. Not to mention, that entitled users can e.g. immediately update / delete the file and not have to look for it in DL.
