[Resolved] Uploading pdf files from computer to WordPress

    Let me start by saying this support function is really cool. I thought I would wait forever, but my first inquiry was answered quickly and the advice worked perfectly.

    So, here is my need… I want to upload several .pdf documents from my laptop computer to my WordPress page, so a visitor to the site can click to open and look at the .pdf file.

    I tried some intuitive media uploading strategies but they did not work.

    What is the best way to upload these documents?

    Thanks in advance

    Dr. Jim

    Probably the best way is using FTP — to a directory (i.e. uploads or media or wherever you want to keep the file) — then link to those documents in your webpage.

    You hosting company should help you with FTP access if you don’t already have that established.
