Attaching PDF or Word Docs Within Custom Content Pages on Your Crevado Online Portfolio

When building your Crevado Online Portfolio Website you may need to link to additional files such as PDF or MS Word documents within the text content of your Custom Content Pages.

You can attach files within any of the Custom Content Pages of your Crevado Online Portfolio Website. It is important to note that only PDF and MS Word Document types are allowed as attachable files. That said, attaching a file within the pages of your Online Portfolio Website is easy!

Firstly, from Crevado Admin, click Pages:

click pages

Locate the Page you wish to edit from the list of your Pages. We are going to use the About Page for our example here. So you locate your About Page and click the related Edit Page Content link as shown below:

edit about page

This will take you to your Portfolio in Live Edit Mode enabling you to change the page content of your About Page.

NOTE: A yellow pop-up at the top of the screen will alert you that you are in Live Edit Mode, it states: "LIVE EDIT mode is active. Click here to go back! or View Live Version".

You can attach the PDF or MS Word Document to your page by positioning the cursor where you want it to be on the page and then clicking on the File button on the Content Editor Toolbar:

A pop-up will open where you can name the file attachment (optional) and then either drag and drop the file attachment or click to select it from your local device:

NOTE: If you choose not to name the file attachment here, it's existing name prior to attaching it will be used. For example, if you saved a PDF as "Diego's Résumé" and then attach it to your content page, "Diego's Résumé" will be the text that will appear on your content page for that attachment.

Below you can see that the file we attached entitled "Diego's Résumé" (it's existing name) is now positioned where we had the cursor on the content page:

You can also attach a file directly to a piece of text on the page by selecting the text and then clicking on the File button. For example, on your "About" page you could attach your résumé. In the example below we typed the text "Check out my résumé!" and then selected this text. Next we need to click on the File button to open the file attachment pop-up area:

As you can see, the selected text has been automatically entered into the name field of the file attachment pop-up. Now we just need to drag the file attachment in or click to select it from our local device:

As you can see below, it has been inserted and attached to the "Check out my résumé!" text. Now when someone views this "About" page and clicks on the "Check out my résumé!" text, they will automatically download the attached résumé:

Of course, you can also View an attachment and/or Edit it, and/or Unlink it by click on it within the content page and clicking on the option you want, as shown below:

That's it - you are done!
