Here’s a quick video tip that shows how you can easily add a PDF as a link in your WordPress website.
Place your cursor where you would like to upload the PDF within a page or post.
User the Upload Media button and choose the PDF from your computer.
The Title of the PDF (right hand side of the upload screen) is what the actual link to the PDF will be. For example, we might make the title “View the Information in this PDF”.
Now click the blue Insert Into Post button.
This inserts the text of your Title with a link to the PDF.
**A final step is to click on the new title with the link to your PDF, then click on the Link button on the toolbar (chain) and choose the option to Open the Link in a New Window. This will open the PDF in a new window!
Now publish your page or post!
