Add a Document to a Page

Adding a document from the Media Library to a page is a pretty straightforward process.

Note: Your document needs to already exist in the T4 Media Library before you can add it to a page. Refer to the instructions on uploading a new document or updating an existing document for more information.

Changing the Document Link Text

If you want to change the text of the inserted document link, you should do so by editing the Name field in the Media Library. This will ensure that the any reference to this document within T4 will also update.

For Special Circumstances

It is possible to change the automatically generated document link text by double clicking on the link and filling out the Name field of the Set media attributes dialog box. However, this should be done ONLY when you need to make an exception to the document link text, such as when working the link into a paragraph. Otherwise, change the document link text via the Name field in the Media Library, as described above.

Remember, a link to a document should always have the document extension in brackets (ex. [pdf], [doc], etc.), even if you are overriding the generated document link text.
