Here is how to upload a file so that people can view or download it from your site:

1. Drag and drop a file widget onto your page from the sidebar on the right (the icon for this looks like a computer disk).
2. A dialog box will open and you can choose to browse your computer for the file you want to upload or choose an already uploaded image.
3. When you click "OK" a link to your file will automatically be created. To test that it is working, save and preview your page.

People will then be able to click on your link and download your MS Word file, PDF, PowerPoint presentation, spreadsheet or whatever file you have uploaded.

Hope This Helps

Here is another easy way if you are thinking of providing downloads from 'external' sources ...

Simply name your download eg. free wordpress download

Highlight 'free wordpress download' and link it externally to the 'real' wordpress' download file. (which you will find on wordpress.con website).

It is a good idea to build 'out' a little if you know what i mean - just my personal opinion. This way you can add and offer more from your site ! (If you don't have a lot of 'downloads' to give away)
