Module of the Week

  • Attachment Links  https://drupal.org/project/attachment_links

The Attachment Links module provides permanent links to files attached to a node. A single, easy-to-remember URL can be used to retrieve the preferred (canonical) or newest version of a file regardless of how many versions of that file have been attached to a node.

Typically, users will want to create a "File" content type and enable the Attachment Links module for that content type. Each "File" node should refer to a single file: "Handbook," "Company logo," "Team roster," etc. Though each node could contain multiple versions of the file, Attachment Link provides permanent link to access the preferred or newest versions.
