all .txt files (attachments) treated as zim pages

Bug Description

If an non zim .txt file sits in a zim folder, that file gets interpreted as a zim page and shows on the index but is not available from the attachment browser.

Furthermore if you click it in the index it would appear that you can edit it, and you can, but it gets the zim header lines added which is probably not the intended user behavior if it wasn't a zim file to begin with.

Instead maybe the zim header lines should be used as content type check in the first place instead of just using the file extension.

Changed in zim:
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → Medium

@oliver: agreed that discussion is in bug #705479. But please leave this one open as well, as it is a more generic description.

Ok! The fact that Zim adds his header to txt attachments is a separate issue indeed.
