opendoor.toastmastersclubs.org/member_downloads.html has the meeting minutes in a folder. I would like to do one of two things:
Option 1: Open the files in-line instead of download (see example in Meeting Minutes folder)
Option 2: Move the Folder to the Meeting Minutes folder. I can hyperlinks that open in-line but the appearance is pretty ugly. Is there a way to use the edit functions to make it look like the folder under Member Downloads?

Hi Brian,
Per the documentation, I can display the files in-line when opening a link on another page, but not from the Members Download page. Is there a way to edit the URL when you are in File Manager? If not, I will read up on how to format custom pages.

What exactly do you mean by displaying the files "in-line"?
Be careful when using jargon... we are still all in Toastmasters here. ;)

I know what means to me but I am not sure of what your intended meaning and/or context is.

Context: I would like to keep the meeting minutes on the website so that members have access. In general, people access old minutes to look something up and don't need to maintain a copy.
My interpretation of "in-line: The file opens in another browser window or tab. I can do this by copying, pasting and editing a link on another page. (e.g. opendoor.toastmastersclubs.org/jdownload.cgi ?action=inline&path=Minutes-2018-02-22.pdf)
Question: Can I do this on the Members Downloads page? This avoids repeating the same date. I don't know how to edit the link on the same page.

Ok thanks for clarifying. To your question, no you cannot do that on the Members Download page... It was never designed that way. I added the whole action=inline thing so that people who wanted to open a PDF inline from a custom web page could get something other than just a straight download.

I do recognize that the whole file manager / file download area is a bit outdated and in need of an update.... I am just not focused on that at the moment.
