  • Link the pdf file to the contact form.

    Sounds like a member only content type of thing. There are plugins, including shopping cart plugins that capture email address for the purpose of building a newsletter list and then forward the user.

    I would start by searching for membership and paid content related plugins. Within their features they will have something like what your looking for.

    I’ve never setup a website that does as you ask, please let me know what solution you find 😉

    how can i link contact form to pdf file

    When the form is submitted, it could take the visitor to a page confirming the outcome. The PDF file could be on that page.

    The actual “How” is web language related and technical but I think there could be a plugin out there that does what you want using some simple settings.

    Ideally you need to use a form (other than the contact form) so that after filling the form, the user is automatically directed to the pdf or any page you like. Have you got such a form setup or do you want to use the normal contact form so that after the user fills it, you will direct her/him to the pdf?

    I said I think there could be a plugin for this. Let me change that to there are plugins that can help with this. I’ve just not used any to remember specific names.

    I purchased a premium plugin for creating a membership website and didn’t even use that but there will be free plugins that will help you. It’s just a case of having the download link/button on a post which is restricted unless the user performs an action.

    This plugin should help

    This in turn requires two plugins, Contact Form 7 & WordPress Download Monitor plugin
