How to add PDF documents to your website
You may need to add a PDF to your website to share an order form, menu, or some other document.
Adding a PDF is the same process as adding an image – only instead of displaying an image your website will display a link to download the PDF.
There are 3 ways to add PDFs to your website.
1. In the blocks editor, add a new "file" block. This will ask you to upload to your media library, then create a link with the title of your document and a download button.
2. In the page builder, you can use a module called "file download" (see image below).
3. Use a plugin like Downloads Manager. This is great if you want to have multiple documents, and keep track of how often they are clicked on. Here is a video about downloads manager
Once you have a file in your media library, you can grab the URL for that file and link it to whatever you want. For example, you can create a callout module, or just a regular image module and have it link to the file download. I use screenshots of the cover image for my PDF as an image to give readers a preview of what they're about to download. The image is basically a visual button for your PDF.
