Enhanced view landing page element


We are running Vibe 3.2 and I'm wondering if someone can help me with a landing page question.

If I create a folder, put some .pdf files in it, and then create an enhanced view element -display sorted list of files, on my landing page, it works exactly like I want it to. Vibe displays a list of all files in the folder, and when a user clicks a file, it displays it very nicely.

However, if I put any .docx files into that same folder, vibe displays the list to my users, but when they click on the file, it tries to open the file instead of just viewing it. I know I can work around this by inserting a link to the document view, but that is extra steps every time you want to add a new file.

Is there a way to have the enhanced view sorted list show a view of a word doc instead of opening it?

Re: Enhanced view landing page element

Theoretically you could code your own Landing Page element or a custom JSP, using the Enhanced View element you were talking about as a template. But this might not be the answer you were hoping to get ... 😉
This might be worth an Enhancement Request, we had a customer asking us about an easy way to achieve something similar, too.
Unfortunately there is no out of the box way to achieve this, as far as I know.
