I've created a couple of websites using Adobe Poertfolio and I'm pleased with them andv the app.
But how do I add a downloadable pdf to the site. I've converted it to a jpg and put it on the site but it's not the answer I want. A pdf can have links in it and is preferable to a jpg for a document.
There is no forum for that product here, Portfolio help may be obtained at the links below

Portfolio does not accept PDF files as they are not web-compatible. As a workaround, upload your PDF to a file sharing site like Dropbox. Place an external link to it on your Portfolio project page.
https : // example . com / my_dropbox_file . pdf
See link below for details.
Hopefully your target audience have PDF viewers installed on their devices.
Thanks, good thought, but I think I will stick with uploading a jpg of the document directly to Portfolio.
After hours of trying, I've found out: you have two options:
Upload to Scribd, and get the embed code. Or:
This another mettod you will need to open the PDF with InDesign. If you can, inside InDesign, access File > Publish Online. After upload, click to open, it will open on a website. On the footer, there will be a button called "Embed".
Inside Adobe Portfolio, just paste the embed code in the proper location.
Embedded code means your content will appear inside an <iframe>. Depending on content, this may or may not be acceptable. Test it and decide for yourself.
Thanks for finding that solution. Sorry you spent hours on it! I've actually uploaded jpgs. It's not as good but it's simple and it works.
It's not your fault, it's ok, I really needed it. Decided to post here to help others. Thanks 🙂
You rock Luiz_Moraes! I was just trying to upload an interactive pdf to my adobe portfolio and couldn't figure out how til I saw your answer - worked like a charm! Thank you!
You have no idea what kind of a hero you are for figuring this out, I spent a day trying to figure this out!
my solution .. i have another website so it has hosting space .. so i uploaded my pdf to that server and bc i also needed to lock few pages.. and remain some pages opened for viewing.. i just pasted the link to external.
The answer is very simple. Add a page "Resume" to the navigation as an "External Link." Then put in your share link to your cloud drive of choice.
