Adding PDF

Hey everyone!

I've been trying to add a PDF to my site, I created a sub-tab in which I want the PDF file to show. I tried uploading it with the "add file-paperclip" on top, but there's no link popping up, redirecting to the file. 

I want the file to only be visible to members of my site (copyright infringement) and I tried uploading it to screencast, but that won't show the file online, it only supports downloading the file. 

Anyone any ideas on this? The file contains 445 pages, I have no idea whether that influences the progress. 

Thanks!!

  • You can use the File Manager to upload a PDF, but restricting it to members only might be harder. 

    I suppose one thing you could do would be to put it in a private group and upload it to a group page. That may be the best advice I can think of, although maybe someone has a better idea.
