Adding a link to a doc in a post

    I went to “edit post” “add media” “from computer”, selected my file and uploaded it. I then expected to see a link in my post to this doc, I don’t see a link and can’t find the doc anywhere. How do I get it to show up as a link in the post? Or just show up anywhere? Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is



    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.
