Adding a link to a doc in a post
You have to link to it as if it were an image. Create your anchor text and link to the doc.
Click “File URL” after uploading and before inserting.
I see the file in my media library, and it says it is attached to the post I want it attached to, but when I look at the post, I don’t see it. What am I doing wrong? How do I figure out what it’s URL is? (I have successfully linked to URLs inside posts, and I see these show up in a different color and underlined.)
Is there a widget I can use to make it show up in the right column? If so, which one?
Sorry for all the questions, but this is only day 3 for me. Thanks in advance!
Jill, as I already said, after “Edit post”, “add media”, “from computer”, selecting file, and uploading, you need to click “File URL” before “Insert into post”. This is the way you get a link in the post – you don’t have to figure out anything else. And you only have to do that once: the uploaded will then remember your preference.
For a pdf you have already uploaded, you can either reupload it that way, or go to Media>Library and click Edit (beneath pdf thumbnail):there you’ll find its URL, which you can copy and turn into a link in the post.
