  File attachment display consolidation

Status in Mahara:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  Currently, we rely on hover for easy downloading of files that have
  been attached to a block, e.g. note or resume item. We are also
  double-coding that area:

  1. The link takes you to the modal where you see the details of the file.
  2. When you click anywhere else in the area (where there is also a hover 
effect), you can download the file directly.
  3. You can click on the download icon that shows up when you hover over the 
file and its surrounding space to download the file.

  It will be better to clean that up to support mobile better and
  prevent confusion about what is happening in the individual cases.

  1. Remove the grey hover effect (it is also difficult to retain accessibility 
contrast to links and the download icon).
  2. Remove the download icon and link.
  3. Remove the size information as it becomes irrelevant without the download 
link. It will be displayed in the modal.
  4. Remove the date information. The date is not always relevant as it is the 
upload date rather than the file creation date. It can be seen in the modal.
  5. Retain the link to the file that takes you to the modal from where you can 
download the file and see all the details for the file.
  6. Add the "Description" as already happens in "Files to download" and use 
"class=midtone". Like with "Files to download", description should sit on its 
separate line right below the file name.

  Every block that can have a file attachment needs to be reviewed and

  1. Notes
  2. Full resume
  3. One resume field
  4. Files to download
  5. Folder
  6. Journal
  7. Journal entry

  and while you are at it, please also add the attachment panel to:

  a) Recent journal entries
  b) Tagged journal entries

  They are missing there at the moment.
