How to Adding/Uploading PDFs

  1. Go to the page or post where the link to your document will be added
    (create a new page or post if necessary).
  2. Locate your cursor precisely where the text link will be placed (but don’t type any text).
  3. Click the Add Media button (above the editing toolbar buttons).
  4. Click Select Files or drag your PDF file into the dotted box. Your PDF document will be imported into the WordPress Media library.
  5. Once the uploading/crunching process has completed, enter the text you require (for the link on the page) in the Title box.
  6. Under ATTACHMENT DISPLAY SETTINGS choose Link To Media File. This ensures that text added to your post will link to the file you have just uploaded.
  7. Don’t forget to press the Update or Publish button to finish.

Setting the PDF to open in a new browser tab

It’s often preferred that the PDF loads up in a new browser tab, so the user can easily return to your web page afterwards. To set this:

  1. Click anywhere within your linked text.
  2. Click the Edit button (pencil icon).
  3. Click the Link options button (cog icon).
  4. Tick ‘Open link in a new tab’ and click Update.
  5. Update the page or post to finish.

Linking images to PDFs

Images can also link to PDF documents and can create a more visible link than text.

  1. If you haven’t already imported your PDF document, use Media > Add New in WordPress (from the dashboard) to import your document to the Media Library first.
  2. Click on the PDF in the Media Library.
  3. Copy the full URL (address) for the PDF to the clipboard.
  4. Close the image and edit the page or post where your link will appear.
  5. Insert the image (if not already added).
  6. Select the image and press the Edit button (pencil icon)
  7. Under DISPLAY SETTINGS, set ‘Link To’ to Custom URL.
  8. To finish, click Update.
    Lastly, update the page or post.
