Hi.
I upload a PDF file to my yola site daily. Going via the online site builder every morning is becoming tedious.
Is there functionality available to do this programmatically which I could incorporate in a script or VBA program? Thereby automating the process?
Thanks

Hi, are you updating the previous content or is this a completely new file you need to be added ? I ask this as there are better ways to have your site updated in regards to documents ,in which the changes to a document will automatically update on the website.

Thanks for your reply. I add an additional file with information for the current day to the site, while the site retains the last 30 or so files. There is also a file which I replace/update weekly so I would appreciate knowing how you accomplish this also.
Hi, a solution I use to update documents is to embed them on the website or blog. Once embedded any changes to the document will automatically be reflected where they are embedded. Use the free Microsoft skydive web apps and create a new doc or upload a new word/excel/powerpoint, after creating it right click on the document and select embed for website, copy the code and drop it into an html widget on your website.

If you need more help, drop me a line on my website as I provide free advise when I can.

example is here of embedding powerpoint/excel:
