Including PDF files in website articles.

by | Mar 14, 2011

Recently some of the contributors to the website have been asking to include PDF files in the articles they write.

PDFs are a great way to store non-editable records, such as event results or meeting minutes.

You might know I’m a big fan of Windows Live Writer (WLW) for making postings to the site easy…  I’ve found a plugin that lets you attach a PDF to your article.

 

To add this plugin to your WLW, go to http://plugins.live.com/writer/detail/insert-file-plugin and download an install the plugin.

To add a PDF file choose Insert>Insert File Plugin and use the dialogue box to choose your file.

When finished, publish the post in the normal way!

Publishing the documents this way means the PDFs are stored on our website and should prevent any sharing or security issues.
