How to create a Page for a Document

Desktop

A Page that opens up a new tab to a pdf that can be downloaded + printed is called a Direct File Link. The process for creating a page out of a document is simple, you upload the pdf to your media library, copy the URL that is created for it, and paste it into the custom links section for the Menu you need it to sit under. Scroll down for the detailed instructions!

*Adding a Direct File will allow the reader to open the file in a new tab when they select it from the menu. 

 

Step 1: Hover over the +New tab at the top of your screen and select Media.
