I have a PDF of information that I would like to display under my BIO tab/link. I do not want the link to the PDF to show up, I want the content of the PDF on the page. Does that make sense ? I want the actual pdf page to show up on my site. THanks

Hello rpsolving

Yep.. what you said makes perfect sense!

Your visitors will need the necessary plugin to access (usually Acrobat Reader) your PDF.

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 file name of your file.
5) Remember to include any folder names in the file path if your file is stored in a folder in the File Manager. For example: "resources/PDF/test.pdf"

Alternatively, you can use slideshare.net to embed your PDF document.

1. Sign up for a free account with slideshare.
2. Go to "Upload" at the top of your screen.
3. Upload your file(s). Then click on "Publish" (or "Publish All" if you have more than 1 file).
4. Once your file has been converted, then click on the file you want to embed.
5. On the right-hand side, you will see a green box with "Embed" and a code provided. Please copy this code.
6. In your Sitebuilder, drag-and-drop an HTML Widget from the sidebar on the right onto your page (the icon for this is a blue sphere).
7. An HTML editor will open up that will allow you to write or paste your code (use right-click > paste or ctrl-V to paste).
8. When you are done, click "OK" and you will see the way that the HTML displays on your page.

Please let me know if you have any trouble with this.
