    There seems to be some sort of bug in WordPress 2.7.1 and these methods
    will not work. If anyone can correct me or show how to make a link to and
    uploaded pdf, in either a “Page” or a static page, please show us. Thanks

    I inherited a WordPress template which is different to the one here in this
    video. Below the post editing I dont get the “Upload” tab below, but rather
    different sections under an ADVANCED OPTIONS title, such as “CUSTOM
    TEMPLATE”, and “PAGE AUTHOR”. No “Upload” option around. How can I upload a
    file like this?

    I wanted to convert excel tables in PDF directly to a word press format. Is
    this something that is possible? I have heard of a product from cogniview
    which can do this, but am not really sure. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Hi, Love the information. However I am having trouble because the PDF I
    want to upload to WordPress is larger than 2M. How can I solve this problem
    besides altering the PDF?

    Excellent question. There is a WordPress plugin called “Search Everything”
    that might work. You could also create a WP page for each file that you
    want people to be able to find. Put as much content as possible from the
    file into the body of the page and give it a descriptive title. Then
    include a link to the file at the top and bottom of the page (or additional
    locations in the page). That page will show up in WP search results. You
    don’t need to include them in your main navigation.

    Graet work Mark. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. ! small question.
    Can I make these word files searchable, so that visitors can search for the
    content inside the documents and the resulting documents will be displayed.
