How do I upload docs then show them as links on a page, rather than publishing whole docs? Specifically, I am creating a "profiles page" for participants attending a meeting. I need to upload their doc and, show their name, and have their name be a link, or have link next to it. Ideally, I would like to create a format where I upload (or cut and paste) their phot, small size, with a few words about them next to photo, ending with the standard "read more"...hyperlink that takes them to the bio. Can anyone please help me do one or both of these formats?

Hi KK,

Follow these steps:

First you need to upload the file/s to your File Manager. Then follow these steps:

1. Drag and drop a text widget onto your page.
2. In the text widget type the words that you want people to click on (this is your link text).
3. Highlight the link text and then click on the link button (it's the 10th button from the left in the text editing tool bar, and looks like the link in a chain).
4. A link editor dialogue box will open up and you will be given 4 options. You can link to an email address, an external URL, a page on your own site or a file in your file manager.
5. You need to select the 4th option.

You will then have a link on your page. To check that your link is working preview your page and then click on the link.
