Things You Should Know (Newsletter Excerpt)

I have been asked many times how to add a PDF link or other download links. Creating this link is like creating any other hyperlink on a web page except you are linking to a document instead of a web page.

Here is an example of a pdf link to an article I created.

This is linking to the pdf document that is in the SAME folder on the web server as the page.

If you are linking from another url it would look like this:

leftbracketa href=””>The Color of Marketing PDF

If you were linking to an mp3, word document or anything else you would simply use the document name in the url. If there is a chance that the document would open in the browser such as with a pdf document I would add the target=”_blank” function so that it would open in a new browser window. That would look like this.

leftbracketa href=”TheColorOfMarketing.pdf” target=”_blank” >The Color of Marketing PDF

I hope that you find this information useful.

Let me know what challenges you are having at and I will
try to cover it in an upcoming issue.

Remember the only bad question is the one that goes unasked!
