The previous article showed users how to upload images via Solodev’s visual editor also known as the WYSIWYG editor. In addition to allowing users to capture and format HTML data and add images without any coding, users are also able to upload PDF, Word, or other similar document files via the WYSIWYG editor. Users can then highlight text to make them link to the newly uploaded document.
Uploading document files via the WYSIWYG
- Open a specific HTML file.
- When the file is opened, the user should see the WYSIWYG toolbar below the file action buttons (Draft, Stage, Publish, etc).
- Use the cursor to select an empty space in the document or, conversely, highlight the text you want to turn into a link to a document file.
- Click the link icon in the WYSIWYG toolbar to bring up the Link modal window.
- Beneath the Protocol textbox, click Browse Server to bring up a file manager modal window.
- Next to the Search textbox, click the Upload button to bring up the Upload Files modal window.
- Click Browse in the Upload Files modal window.
- Choose the file and click Upload.
- Click Choose File.
- The user is taken to the Link modal window where they can add a Display Text.
- Enter the Display Text and click OK.
- The Display Text appears in the document.
- Click Publish.
Note: Solodev does not accept files greater than 50MB in size.
