Hi,
I am really struggling with this linking business.
I have built my site, added lots of links on pages to documents i have saved on my computor but i have had lots of reports of people having problems viewing them, apparently they have to save in there doc's before viewing, i dont see this is right!
Also when i try to preview the links i get a list of files come up but not the document that i ahve linked it to.
Please help me its driving me mad!!!!!

I believe this is the only way to view the files.
Sorry i dont have good news.
A Yola employee may have a better idea about this subject.

Im Back, With better news.
You can upload your files to google docs and link to them from your site.
This way your site visitors do not have to download anything.

John...This works very well and can be set to share but not allow changes to the doc...Actually a number of moderating options by the file owner.
