Over the years WordPress has made significant improvements in all aspects of its code and user-interface. It has become one of the greatest CMS platform not only for blogging but for creating full-featured websites for companies of all sizes. It now easily allows you to do one thing all of my clients want to be able to do – upload and link to a PDF or other file on their website. This tutorial will show you how simple it can be to link to a file on your site in WordPress 2.8.
First, create a new Post or Page (or open an existing one). I’m using a new post I’m writing called “Uploading and Linking to a PDF in WordPress 2.8″ (heard of it?).
In the editor window place your cursor where you would like the link to appear.
Click the Add Media button in the Upload/Insert menu.
