Chapter 5. Handling External Documents > Attaching PDF and Other Document Types

Attaching PDF and Other Document Types

Not all external documents are intended to be converted to HTML. Some documents are better viewed in the program that created them or through the proper plug-in in a browser. Online access to these types of files is supplied from Contribute with a link.

Linked documents present their own special challenge because what happens when the link is clicked depends on the configuration of a visitor's particular system. For example, with the appropriate plug-in installed, someone selecting a link for a Visio project file might see the page open in the browser window. Another person without the right software would be prompted to download the file when the same link is selected.
