    Hi!
    I'm attempting to add some PDFs to my blog posts. The uploading process and inserting the link goes fine, but it gives a 404 Page Not Found error when clicked! How do I fix this? I really need these PDFs to work.

    Probably your web server's requires to add MIME type for PDF. Are you on Linux server or Windows ?

    Windows, I can only assume. Since I use that OS. How do I do this?

    Did you look to see if there might be a plugin to resolve your challenge?

    No, I didn't look. Though PDFs are listed as files that you can post with the attachment function so should a plugin really be nesseccary? Does anyone know another reason it might not work?

    Fixing the file name didn't work... Also, I don't want the PDFs viewable IN the blog post, just that the link lets the person see the document in another window/tab. Anyone got any tips for me? Still getting 404s.
