    Hi, sorry to bother you.
    I’m wanting to add an attachment to a blog post, that any readers can print out.
    It is a pattern piece, so would need to be printed to the right scale, from a pdf file.

    How can I do it?

    Thanks for your time
    Kind Regards
    Lucie

    The blog I need help with is flylula.com.

    Uploading file on your WordPress.com site only allows you to insert a download link to a file. If you wish to embed the actual document into a post or page, you can use external services such as Scribd or Slideshare.

    Thanks for your help.
    I’m not sure what you mean by embed a document?
    Why would I want or need to do this?

    Embedding a document will enclose the file into the post or page otherwise it’ll be a link instead.

    If you simply want to post a link to a PDF file you can follow the instructions at http://en.support.wordpress.com/uploading-documents/ on how to upload documents.

    OK,
    Thanks again for getting back to me.
    I’m a bit slow when it comes to technology.
    What I want to do is, attach an A4 printable pattern, that I have scanned into my computer and then saved.
