    Hey Everyone,
    I am a bit new to wordpress. I am trying to upload files such as *.pdf and *.doc to my blog, but when I try to open the link, an error comes up saying it's not there. I checked my FTP server and the file is present, but the link isn't working. Any ideas?

    Are you sure you've got the right URL to the document? Double check it...

    Did you upload the files via FTP? I seem to have problems with that. If they aren't uploaded using the upload area in admin, WP can't see them. I am just now starting to investigate the problem -- it may have to do with the database. The DB may write more information to various tables than just a simple location of a file, and if so, upload via FTP isn't going to work. Let me know if you learn anything else. I have a lot of pdf and doc files to upload -- I was hoping to use an upload manager plugin, but what I've tried so far doesn't upload multiple files at once (but all the other features are neat.)

    I believe I solved my problem. I was directly adding the link to the html code, so I dragged the file over from the file browser and it worked. I was using the default upload mechanism for wordpress.

    Have a look at http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3117 as well if you're having problems with pdf...
