I’m trying to link to a .pdf file in a post. I followed the instructions on a video I found, and uploaded the file to my media library. But when I preview the post and click on the linked text, it opens another page within my blog with just a link to the .pdf file as the entry for that date. Only then, when you click on the highlighted text does the standard Adobe .pdf dialog box pop up allowing you to open the file.
Is there a way to link to the .pdf file so that on the first click it opens the dialog box, rather than taking me to another page on my blog?
