    Default Trouble uploading pdf files

    I uploaded a website containing two pdf files but these files did not show up. I noticed that there is a folder '_upload_xar_files' containing the two pdf files on my computer in addition to, but separate from the site file '_upload'. How do I get the folder containing the pdf foiles to upload in tandem? Please help.Thanks. Buzz

    Where the PDF files linked in the site? If so they automatically upload in the index_htm_files folder. And if someone clicks the link on your website to the PDF file then the PDF will open or download.

    Is this what you want to do?

    What I did was:
    Clicked on "File", "Import" and then selected the PDF file from a folder in my computer. The PDF icon then appeared on the web page. Afterwards, when I uploaded the updated site, the PDF file did not show up.

    Not sure what is going on here.

    I go through the Link menu (see attached) and select Link to PDF File..., browse to the PDF file, click Open, then Apply.

    The file uploads to the website and is available when a visitor clicks the link to the file.
