The Upload pages text box should have the path to the file you selected and is now ready to be uploaded. Click Upload to copy the file to the web server.

You should now see the file you just uploaded within the Documents file preview window located at the bottom of this page.

Return to the administration main menu page and select the link titled Create or Edit Page Content. Select the page from the list that you want the pdf file link inserted. Find a spot on the page and add a text description for the file to be opened. (i.e. December Newsletter) Highlight the text with your mouse and select the chain icon located on the second row first icon of your page content editor.

The Insert/edit link dialog box will pop up on your screen. If you do not see this pop up screen please make sure to allow pop ups for this website from within your computers pop up blocker. Now you can select the pdf file you wish to link.
