Images without extension show as link, not photo #1446

I am using paperclip to upload images. I have noticed that when uploading images which do not have a file extension, it shows as a link to the image (list, show, edit) and not the image itself.

The image shows normally in the app however.

I would appreciate a fix for this or at least a workaround for the time being.

@fernandomm fernandomm Fixes issue #1446 by checking file type with filemagic gem. 08367cf

You could do:

  field :photo do
    image true

to force photos to be shown as image.
