How to Upload a PDF to the CMS

Once you are logged into the CMS, browse through the navigation to the section of the site where you want to add the PDF, then click the "Contents" tab. If you don't see the Contents tab you can go to your site's homepage, click the Contents tab, then browse through the folders to get to where you want to add the PDF.

When you are in the area where you want to add the PDF, select "Add New" > "File."

Under "File" click "Browse..." and find the pdf you want to link to on your computer. Make sure the .pdf to be uploaded has no capitalization or punctuation,  and uses dashes between words. Once you have found it, click "Open," and then add a title, and description.  In the "Title" section, give your PDF a proper title, and include PDF at the end. Provide a Summary. Next, click the "Settings" tab.  Put a check mark in the box next to "Exclude from navigation."  Click the "Save" button. You will see the message "Changes saved."

Finally, you will need to add a link to your PDF.
