Yesterday, somehow my flash file (uploaded to plone as a regular file) wouldn't display itself. I was using the same
object tags as on a local filesystem test html file, so why oh why...
Some googling gave me a blog post that told me it was a recent flash 10 security feature that interacted badly with atcontenttype's default file content type. There's a easy fix that'll go into the next version of atcontenttypes.
I needed a fix Right Now, though, so I made the following quick patch. If you need it: add it as
patch.py to your product and just do an
import patch in your
__init__.py. The patch:
from Products.ATContentTypes.content.file import ATFile # This patch adds flash files as inline types. # See http://dev.plone.org/plone/ticket/8624 ATFile.inlineMimetypes= ('application/msword', 'application/x-msexcel', # ? 'application/vnd.ms-excel', 'application/vnd.ms-powerpoint', 'application/pdf', 'application/x-shockwave-flash') print "PATCHED ATCT'S FILE FOR FLASH INLINE BUG" print "See http://dev.plone.org/plone/ticket/8624"
