links within pdfs (4 posts)

    I am about as a novice as user as there is ... I am linking a pdf to one of my pages (I know how to do that, woohoo!), but once I have the pdf linked, any links within the pdf no longer work.

    Any idea what I am doing wrong?

    Here is the page:

    http://usasiainstitute.org/programs/j-matthew-szymanski-rule-of-law-program/?preview=true&preview_id=17&preview_nonce=8e42663935

    And it's the "China Context for DC Program"

    Thanks in advance for the help ...

    Preview links can be viewed only by you. Post a published link to illustrate the problem.

    Hi,
    The PDF file is a separate entity here, so the links within it were created (or not) before you posted it to the site and linked it to your post. They will either work or not, regardless of whether you link it via WordPress or sent it via email, etc. The links aren't taken out by WordPress, in other words. IF you are viewing the PDF in a browser instead of downloading it and viewing it in Adobe Reader or Acrobat, the links should still work. Perhaps try a different browser and see what happens...?
