When I first began looking into this, File Gallery got me much closer to solving the problem. The only issue is that the plugin only displays the generic non-image icon when I upload a file.
Does anyone know of a pre-existing plugin that would either work alongside File Gallery or in place of it to achieve logos specific to a file type (say, I upload a .doc file then the plugin displays a MS Word logo).
Failing a pre-existing plugin, what would be a good starting point to attempt to craft my own hand-made solution?
Thanks in advance!
