What is the best way for a viewer to view a document that has a lot of formatting? ie a resume. I thought of PDF but is there a better way?

Hi Gimpybrad,

I would stick with PDF. Here is how you can add a PDF file to your site:

Your visitors will need the necessary plugin to access the PDF file.

1) Upload your PDF file to the file manager
2) Drag and drop an HTML widget onto your page
3) Paste the following tag into the HTML editor that opens:
<!-- <embed width="600" height="400" src="resources/test.pdf"> -->
4) replace test.pdf with the exact filename of your file.

NB: Leave out the < !-- and the -- >, I only add those to stop the code from being interpreted.
