[resolved] Uploading pdf files from computer to WordPress (2 posts)

    Let me start by saying this support function is really cool. I thought I would wait forever, but my first inquiry was answered quickly and the advice worked perfectly.

    So, here is my need... I want to upload several .pdf documents from my laptop computer to my WordPress page, so a visitor to the site can click to open and look at the .pdf file.

    I tried some intuitive media uploading strategies but they did not work.

    What is the best way to upload these documents?

    Thanks in advance

    Probably the best way is using FTP -- to a directory (i.e. uploads or media or wherever you want to keep the file) -- then link to those documents in your webpage.

    You hosting company should help you with FTP access if you don't already have that established.
