wordpress cannot find files uploaded by ftp (2 posts)

    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?

    No. Try removing the double set of quotation marks from the href, and be sure to use the absolute path to the file.

    <a href="http://www.yoursite.com/wp-content/files/mypdf.pdf">My PDF</a>
