@Juan, I'm also interested in doing this for adding product manuals online. Please post back if you figure out a way to do this from a database field.

@Juan, I have added a repository to work on this module: https://github.com/OdooCommunityWidgets/website_product_attachments currently I have not yet started development, however I plan to use some of the features of : https://github.com/OdooCommunityWidgets/website_multi_image as this will work as a good starting point to pull multiple files (PDF's, pictures, etc.) onto the product page. Please comment back if you have any suggestions. If you'd like to collaborate on the module please feel free as I think this will improve the quality of the module and perhaps speed up the implementation of the first version of the module.

Not so much an odoo issue but that you need to get a PDF plug in that can queue to load server side the same way you need plug in code to embed a youtube video or flash player.

Something such as this...


I haven't tried this one myself but I'm sure there are many like it lurking around on the web. You may have to try a few out and test it on multiple browsing platforms to decide what works best for you.



Thanks for the info!

This is tricky i have atempted to do this but no success , the most you could do is possibly convert the pdf into a image file and insert it as a normal image

Yes, my solution was that, but maybe was another alternative to insert PDF files. Thanks!
