How to Upload PDF Files to Your WordPress Site




First you need to edit the post or page where you want to upload the PDF file. On the post editor screen, you need to click on the ‘Add Media’ button.

This will bring up the WordPress media uploader popup.

Next, you need to click on ‘Select Files’ button to select the PDF file you want to upload

WordPress will now upload the PDF file to your website.

Once uploaded, you’ll see a thumbnail preview of your PDF file. On your right hand column, you can provide the title, caption, and description for your file.

You can also select how you want it to be linked. By default, it will link to the PDF file itself. You can change that to the attachment page, which will be a page showing just the pdf thumbnail preview of the first page of your PDF file.

Click on the ‘Insert into post’ button to add the PDF file into your post.

The media uploader popup will now disappear, and you will see PDF file download link in your post editor. You can continue editing your post or publish it.

That’s all, you have successfully uploaded a PDF file and added it to a WordPress blog post.
