Managing Files
Linking to and Uploading

Post

Linking

Rather than linking to a file via a hyperlink, use the file attachment. That way we can easily replace old files and also view where a file is located on the website. In summary, do not hyperlink to PDF files.

Uploading

When you upload a file attachment to a post, take a look at the link it creates. If there is a “_#” after the pdf file name, that means the file has already been uploaded. Remove that file and look for the file name in the file browser and use the original one.

For example, if you upload a file with the name “career_trends_graphs.pdf” and it creates a link that reads “career_trends_graphs_0.pdf” that means you have already uploaded that file. Remove that one and search for “career_trends_graphs.pdf” in your file browser.
