      Description

      When creating a linked file in the forum description of a simple single discussion forum, the link is made unavailable. I believe this is because linked files are not available in Forum posts, and the simple single discussion forum automatically converts the forum description to a post.

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Create a forum, set the type to "A simple single discussion"
      2. In the description, create a link to a file in the Server Files repository
      3. Click Save and Display
      4. When viewing the forum, click on the hyperlink to the linked file

      Expected result: Link URL = http://preview2.mroomstest.net/pluginfile.php/3686/mod_forum/intro/donaldduck.jpg. File displays with URL
      Actual result: Link URL = http://preview2.mroomstest.net/pluginfile.php/3686/mod_forum/post/426/donaldduck.jpg. Upon clicking, the user receives the following error: "Sorry, the requested file could not be found"
