How to add a link to a PDF

A PDF file is different than an image file in that it will open in a new window instead of being displayed within the page. There are two main parts to the process, first uploading the PDF and then providing a link to the PDF.

part 1 - upload the pdf

  1. Navigate to the media library. Go to the dashboard and click Media > Add new Media File
  2. Click Select Files or drag and drop the PDF into the box provided
  3. Once uploaded, give the PDF a meaningful name
  4. You can click the "copy URL link" to copy the URL for step two but you also have the option to search for it.

part 2 - create the link

  1. Go to the page or post that you want the link to appear
  2. Click the drag and drop editor to launch it
  3. Click the + plus icon in the upper right corner
  4. Drag and drop the Button module onto the page where you want it.
  5. In the Button Module box:
    1. Under the Text heading: Type the words that you want to be the link
    2. Under the Icon heading: optionally choose an icon
    3. Under the link heading, click the word "Select" to search for your PDF by name. Or paste the URL if you copied it form step 1.
  6. Click Save at the bottom of the Button Module window.

Save the page or post when done by clicking Done & then Publish in the upper right corner.
