NC for Hire

If you frequently add PDF files to your Ning network for your members to download, you may want to let them know that a link to a pdf is a PDF and the size, so that they are not surprised. Any anchor link can be a link to a PDF document, but clicking a link like that thinking otherwise can be surprising and uncomfortable for a user. This CSS can visually signify those links.

[The Following goes in your advanced CSS section]

/* Add " (PDF)" text after links that go to PDFs */a[href$=".pdf"]:after { content: " (PDF)"; }/* If file size specified as data attribute, use that too */a[href$=".pdf"][data-size]:after { content: " (PDF, " attr(data-size) ")"; }


So in other words, this...

<p>Watch out for the <a href="some.pdf">PDF bomb</a> here!</p>


becomes this...

Watch out for the PDF bomb (PDF) here! (no pdf here, just an example link)

or..

<p>Watch out for the <a href="some.pdf" data-size="2 MB">PDF bomb</a> here!</p>


becomes this...

Watch out for the PDF bomb (PDF, 2 MB) here! (no pdf here just example link)
