Both free and pro users can upload and link to pretty much any kind of document (allowing site visitors to download it). Pro users also have the option to embed a document so it is directly visible on a page. Here's how to do both.
Link to a Document (or Other File)
You can create a link to a document either by highlighting the text you want to link or clicking on an image. Then selecting the appropriate link option for either.
If you're linking text, it'll look like this:
If you're linking an image, it'll look like this:
Either option will open a link dialog box from where you'll need to select the File tab on the left and then click the Upload a File button.
And then select the file you want to upload from your computer.
Then you're all done. The link will only be live and clickable on your Published site. It won't work in the editor.
Pro users have the option to embed a PDF, Word file or other document directly to a page using our Embedded Document element.
Drag the element to a page (you can find it under the Multimedia section of Elements):
Click the indicated area of the element and the select the Upload new File option from the toolbar.
Then select the file you want to upload from your computer.
Give the file a little time to upload and you're all done! See the example below to get an idea of how it works.
Note that the Download link in the element does not work. This is an issue with Scribd that we're working with them to fix. In the meantime, if you need to create a download link for the file you should use the instructions at the beginning of this article.
