I am designing a webpage and I want to create a hyperlink which when clicked will download a pdf document to the users computer, see pic below:
I have successfully created the instagram link and also the "email me" link.
I wish to upload a pdf to the page which can be downloaded by clicking the "Download my media kit" component.
Copy link to clipboard
Hi @andrewa22071730, I think I'd upload the file somewhere (a web space I have or a free dropbox or google drive etc) and assign the link to that target. If your aim is starting a download automatically when user clicks the link, I think it's best to host the file on a web space you own (there might be also some free alternatives) oh and with a quick search I realized this video claims that you can create an "auto download on click" link for a file you have on google drive: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYm03K7weKA&t=33s (I see there's even a "download link generator" shared in the video desc: https://gdrivelinkgenerator.paperform.co/ ) Hope this helps!
Fantastic advice and a great work around. I came to the same conclusion myself and uploaded the file to Google drive and assigned a hyperlink to the component.
Thanks for your solid advice.
Also you can zip pdf file for downloading from the link
