How do I link to a pdf document from my yola blog? I have tried linking a photo to a document which didn't work & then linking text to a document, that didn't work either. I followed the same procedure as I have used previously on my website to do this, but for some reason, yola seems to be adding "restricted_view" to the address of the document. When I preview it, the entire document is blank & will not open. However, I already have a link on another page of my website to this same document which it opens just fine with. Please help!

Hello Karen

Can you please provide the URL
  • to your blog where the PDF link is working, and

  • to your blog where the PDF link is not working?

I will then be able to look into this. Thanks.

After I realized that yola seems to be letting the blog portion of their websites fall by the wayside (no longer offered as of August of this year) I decided that I am going to use different blogging software & just link it to my site.

Thanks

That's true, Karen. Maybe you'd like to try Tumblr as your blog provider. Whenever you update your Tumblr blog, it will be automatically updated on your Yola website as well without you needing to re-publish your website!
