Optimizing PDF Viewing in Drupal


Rod Martin recently highlighted a simple yet effective approach to facilitate PDF handling within Drupal websites. Emphasizing the need for documents to open in new tabs or windows for easy access and seamless navigation, Martin outlined a method leveraging the EXTLink module. By enabling a straightforward configuration in Drupal's User Interface settings, users can ensure that all PDFs, or specified document types, open in a separate tab or window. However, it's important to note that this approach applies universally and currently lacks the option to opt-out for specific instances. Martin's instructional video further elucidates the implementation of this process for enhanced user experience within Drupal environments.
