[resolved] Adding a downloadable .pdf from a link (4 posts)

    I want to put a link inside an email taking the user to a hidden page or a .pdf or something and can't figure out how. how can i do this or something to make it work. i'm used to using dreamweaver where you can just put a link directly to the .pdf.

    i've tried creating a subdirectory in the root directory for wordpress (hosted by hostgator) and it won't link.

    any other suggestions to this issue are very welcome!

    You can add a pdf in the uploader using the add/insert button above the edit box, exactly the same way you'd add an image.

    is this correct?

    thanks, i know i'm on the right track, but not a seasoned wordpress user yet
