      Missing watermarks in pdf files – only image files having watermarks ๐Ÿ™

      Also annoying when I upload pdf files – it can not add pdf icon. So everytime I upload pdf files I add a custom icon so I can avoid this: “mediafile not found”

      And for Christmas ๐Ÿ˜› I wish to have the ability to edit the watermark in a easy way. I have tried to edit the css without luck ๐Ÿ™

      Also annoying when I upload pdf files โ€“ it can not add pdf icon. So everytime I upload pdf files I add a custom icon so I can avoid this: โ€œmediafile not foundโ€

      Can you give me a link to your site where I can see this error. It should not happen. If there is no thumbnail (one can never be created for a PDF automatically) then the display should use a default pdf icon. Perhaps your theme does not have one.

      But in fact I always think it is best to add your own thumbnail for pdf files anyway. I use one based on an image of the first page of the pdf, plus a small pdf icon. Like the one attached here. The thumbmail must have EXACTLY the same file name as the full size, but be type “.png”

      And for Christmas. I wish to have the ability to edit the watermark in a easy way. I have tried to edit the css without luck

      No, it doesn’t use css. It is hard coded. If anyone else would like to improve that system I would accept the code. But I’m afraid it will be many years, if ever, before I would give it any priority myself.

      Personally I would remove the watermark feature completely (but I won’t ๐Ÿ™ ). I HATE watermarks. They achieve absolutely nothing, other than to make the web site extremely ugly for visitors. They certainly will not prevent anyone stealing your images. Watermarks are far to easy to remove. I use a very simple rule – if I don’t want people to see an image I hide it with privacy; if I don’t want it stolen I don’t upload it to the internet! That is the ONLY safe solution.

      I can not show you since I allready re-uploaded all the pdf to fix that problem ๐Ÿ™ But I can look after it in the theme ? Which name should it have? (I noticed the problem in simpl-gallery)

      Well it might be the solution instead – to hide the image instead! (in this case the pdf-file). I know it can be removed. But at least it has to be done when stolen ๐Ÿ˜›

      I have tried to fix the gedcom name (in watermark) which is bigger than the imagefile.

      Well that is important to know. It means the problem is something completely different. I’ll look at it.
