Hi Talicy,

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.

We currently have a limit of 15MB per file, although there is no limit to the number of files that you can upload or the space available for your site.

If you have a individual file that is larger than 15MB you could use a free file hosting service such as: Boxnet - http://www.box.net/ or Mediafire - http://www.mediafire.com/ and link to it from your site.

Remember there is no limit to the number of files you can upload, they just all need to be 15MB or below.
