Uploading a PDF File to Your Site

Last Updated on Dec 31, 2013
If you have an important PDF document that you would like to share with your website visitors, you will want to upload the file to your site. (Note: These files can still be found by Google so don't upload any personal information here.) There a couple of methods to host a PDF file on your site. You can either place a link to the PDF file in your site's navigation menu by creating a 'Link Page' or you could create a hyperlink by using the content editor.
 

Note: Assigning a program to open PDF files located on websites is done through the operating system or web browser.
 
Link Page Method:
1. Upload the PDF file to your 'Document Storage'.
