need Button to link to a PDF document

Post by terryfoster60 » Thu Jan 31, 2019 11:35 am

I am looking to generate a button which links to a downloadable or viewable pdf document.
It is for a restaurant who want their menu to be downloadable.
Please can anyone advise how to do this.
I can not get the form button to work

Thank you in advance for any feedback

Terry

Why do you need a form nutton!!
you can easily insert an image of pdf, and link this image with your menu which should be uploaded onto your host.

is that what you're asking for!!

A nutton is that a 'New' object in Web Design?

Thank you... I am not a nutton.
... many things but not a nutton.

I am new to WYSIWYG and some of the features are new to me.
I have programmed Dreamweaver for years but had to change because of responsive and bootstrap sites.

Thank you

Terry form buttons are meant to be used on forms only. If you follow the link I gave you will be able to create a link easily for what you have asked.

What terry was asking is to make a link that will download a PDF file which is what i am trying to do but there is no explanation at https://www.wysiwygwebbuilder.com/links.html on how to achieve that. Is there any other help for this ?

unless I am missing something...

Put a Themable Button on your site. Set the properties for the Button and add the link to the pdf file.
