Making widgets work
It did appear and I answered you there. It’s still on this page:
Since your CV is in .pdf format, it will open in a .pdf reader. If you wish to let somebody download it, you will have to upload it to some website that gives you a direct download link. If it is okay that the thing opens in a reader automatically, put the following code in a text widget:-
<a href="http://www.thefulleffect.com/pdcv.pdf">Download my CV</a>
For your RSS feed, put the following code in a text widget:-
<a href="http://thefullblog.wordpress.com/feed">Subscribe to my RSS feed</a>
Also, if someone clicks on the PDF and it opens in their browser (using the Adobe Reader plugin), they can click on file > save and save a copy on their computer.
Brilliant! Thanks for that. My CV is actually already in PDF form on the server where my web site is hosted so I have a URL for it. Thanks to you guys I also now have a format for the html need. Just a few more details to sort out now and I’ll be happy.
Richard you have so much going on, on your blog, I’d really like to have some of your features. I guess I’ll learn!
Nice blogs too – both of you. Makes me realise how far I have yet to develop.
Thank you. The blog linked to my username is self-hosted so I have a lot more things available to me than here at .com, but once you start getting the hang of things, there are lots of ways to implement great things here. There are a lot of creative people here who have figured out ways around some of the limitations.
