  3. Click the “Edit” tab
  4. Scroll down to “File Attachment” to upload your file
  5. Click “Browse” to find the file on your computer and select it
  6. Once you see the name of the file beside the “Browse” button, click “Upload”
  7. The file now appears under “File Information”

You now two options.

  1. Preferred: You can link this file to text on your page so when a user clicks the text/link the file opens
  2. You can have the file simply appear at the bottom of your page

For linking the file to text on the page:

  1. Put your cursor on top of the file name under “File Information”, left click and select “Copy Link Location.”
  2. Scroll up to the Body text field on this page and highlight the word(s) you want to serve as the link for the user

  4. In the URL field, left click and “paste” the link location you previously saved
  5. Click “OK”
