How To Load a PDF Document

There are a variety reasons of why you may need to load a document to your site. Allowing members and guests access to printable material is one of these reasons. If you have a document that you want loaded into your website, the steps are easy to complete!

  • First, make sure your document is a pdf. A simple Word document will not be immediately viewable and will download into the interested party’s computer… and that might be annoying. Opening your document in your computer and click “Save As” to allow you to save it as a pdf format.
  • In your webpage, create text that will contain the link to your pdf. You might want to type the title of your document (see example above). Once you have text, highlight it with your cursor and click on the link icon in the toolbar. A little box will pop down - click on Insert Link.
  • The window that opens shows four options for linking. The second option is called My Documents - click here and an Upload File button will appear. When you chose the Upload File button, the system will take you to your computer files. Find the pdf document that you want to load and select it. It will automatically upload and the title will show in the window.

  • Click on the title of your document in the document list and hit the Save button. You will also need to click the Save button at the bottom of the page on which your new link now exists. Your link is complete! For testing purposes, logout, return to your page and test your link.

In this digital world, don't forget about those who love the feel of paper between their fingers when they read! Load a document today!
