>> PDF are not supposed to be rendered in a browser. Since you have problem with them, I think it's a mime-type problem when you download them, the server will for example serve them as plain text and you'll get the code of the pdf instead of opening them with your desktop application. Is it the same for JPG files? Do they display well when they are included in the pages, but display code when you try to download them?

You may need to look at the site configuration. Unless you explicitly changed something in pmwiki, this wouldn't be caused by anything in pmwiki. How does the site serve up .pdf/.jpg/.gif files addressed directly by your browser, which wouldn't touch the pmwiki code at all?
