Uploading PDF file from own computer: Where Did it Go?

  • Author

    I have a file sent to me by a doctor which is his PDF study published in British Medical Journal which I’m trying to upload or link to a post I’m drafting. He sent me the full text and the BMJ only gives an abstract.

    I went into Media, upload files from computer–and then went to the updated version and Word Press showed that it had uploaded it somewhere but I can’t find it. The link doesn’t activate and I don’t see any reference to the study.

    Please advise. Thank you.

    The blog I need help with is stopsmartmetersirvine.com.



    Hi. If you uploaded the file first and then tried to insert it into your post, the PDF is probably in your media library. Here’s how to link to it from your post.


    Thank you airodyseey. That is useful info, which I will use next time.


    I went ahead and tried your advice. It worked perfectly. Now people can read the entire study if they want. Thank you. Handy to know how to do this.




    You’re welcome :-)


    You can also embed it in a post or a page if you upload it to Scribd first:
