[resolved] Can I link to email and PDFs? (3 posts)

    I am working on a client project where I am using WordPress. My question is if there is any way to link highlighted text to PDFs and email by using the same method as you do with linking to web sites?

    I want to be able to highlight some text and then link it to a PDF from his server opening in a new window. I want to be able to do the same with email so that it opens in the default email application.

    The answer is yes!
    Simply highlight the desired text, click "insert/edit link" [or hotkey = alt+shift+A] and put in the URL of the PDF or mailto:email@address.com for an email.

    You may have to upload the PDF first if it's not already online somewhere (to do this, use the "add media" option, just like you would with an image).
