Hi Everyone,

I'm wondering how I can upload a pdf to a webpage, preferrably without having to convert it first. I have hundreds to do so something simple would be best.

Thanks

Upload the PDF(s) via Quick Upload It (Under WebFTP tools in Site Central)

Then you add to whatever pages you want, even Thank You pages.

In BB2, add text block, add your text you want to use to link to the PDF

Highlight the text, click the link icon in the toolbar

Select "Content Files" folder in the popup

Find your PDF and select it.

Then click the button "Add Selected Content File" and that's it.

I recommend you also click the "nofollow" icon while the text is still highlighted for any PDFs you add.

Here is a thread discussing PDFs you may find interesting:

thanks for that! I love SBI for these kinds of easy solutions.

However, I notice there is a limit of space here.... If i have hundreds to upload should I be looking at another way?

Thanks

Hi Kristie.

Not yet.

I would get used to building web pages and uploading PDFs first. Do be sure to use a file size minimizer before you upload. My daughters did this for me, and they saved us 1/3 the space we'd been using. I'm not techy enough to remember how they did that or even its proper name. I think we Googled for directions, yet they might have had it in Adobe.

Currently, I have thousands of one to twelve page PDFs on [Domain Private] and am using less than half of my Special File Manager available space.

When you get close to needing more space, is the time to wonder. At that time you'll find that there are solutions that can be almost free and SBI Support can be helpful there, too.

For now the trouble of the day is enough. :D

I hope that this is a help.

Mary

Ok thanks thats super helpful. It'll work for most of the PDF's I'm posting! Yay!

Do you know if theres a way to make those PDF's interactive? Like put a link in them, or do I need to convert to html for that?

Thanks

Hi Kristie.

We use Adobe and

Holding ALT successively press T, W, R

As you can see I'm no tech, but if you're familiar with this give it a try.

Here's a page where we have PDFs where visitors can write on them. Try downloading it to see if the typewriter purple bar shows at the top:

[Domain Private]

Hoping this helps.
