Linking to Documents

Your File Library can contain any kind of document you desire, including images, word processor documents, spreadsheets, PDF documents, and more.  You can then provide links to these documents in any of your site's content pages or XSellerate Ads so your clients can easily download them.  To add a link to a document in your file library, you must first upload it from either the File Library function, or from the Content Editor's File Manager.  To insert a link to a document:

  1. In the Content Editor, place your cursor where you'd like to insert the link to the document.  Alternatively, if you want to turn some existing text or an image into a link to a document, select the text (or image) you want the user to click.
  2. Click the Document Manager icon  (  ) .

  3. In the screen that appears, select the desired document from your File Library, or click the Upload Document tab to upload a new one.

  4. Type a brief description of the document in the Tooltip field.  This description then pops up whenever someone hovers the cursor over the link and provides search engines with another piece of information they can use to rank your site.
  5. Finally, choose a Target from the drop-down menu provided.  Options are:
  6. When finished, click Insert to place the link to your document into your web page.
