If you wish to add an info sheet to a volunteer page or a form for parents to fill out for a day camp, you can add a downloadable PDF to any Givecloud page.

To add a PDF to a Givecloud page,

  1. Go to Features > Website > Pages & Menus.

  2. If you already have a page created, click on the page. If not, select the + Add a Page button at the top of the screen.

  3. Once on the page, you will see the page editor. Here you can add some content - images, text etc.

  4. Click Add Media and upload the PDF into the media library. Once it has uploaded, hover over it with your mouse, and select the magnifying glass icon - this will open the attachment in a new tab.

5.. Copy the URL from the new tab that has opened.


7. Once complete, close the media library.

8. Next, place your cursor on the page where you would like to add the downloadable PDF attachment.

8.a. You may want to link the downloadable PDF to some text or a sentence like 'click here to download.' In this case, please type the text out and then highlight it. Once the sentence is highlighted, right-click. A dropdown menu will appear - select 'Link.' Paste the URL you copied from the tab with the PDF attachment and paste into the URL field and click 'Ok.'

8.b. You may want to link the downloadable PDF to a button.
In this case, place the cursor where you would like the button and then click the button to Add Template (next to 'Add Media,' which you used to upload the PDF to the media library).
Click into the Components tab and select whichever one of the button templates you wish to use.
Replace the default 'button text' with whatever you would like it to say and then right-click on the button. A dropdown menu will appear - select 'Link.'
Paste the URL that you copied from the tab with the PDF attachment, paste it into the URL field, and click 'Ok.'
