How to Link PDFs

Before uploading and using PDFs on your website, we encourage you to first evaluate if there is an alternative solution for your content that may serve you and your user better. Maybe it should be a new webpage? Maybe a form? There are many pros and cons to using different formats to deliver your content. If you choose to use a PDF, you can upload and link it in EpiServer according to the instructions below.

REMINDER: You will need to review all links on pages that were imported from the old site.
