I have uploaded pdf files and made links by hand with the path e.g
<a href=""/wp-content/files/mypdf.pdf"">My PDF</a>
I know the path is correct by wordpress says nothing here when I click the link. I don't care if the files are available in the Media Library. I know where the files are located.
Does wordpress disallow accessing files that are not loaded through the built in uploaded? I did not have this problem with earlier versions.
Is anyone else having this problem?
