If there are links in the text of the pdf, and the pdf is “readable” then those will be clickable. To determine if your PDF is readable by our system, open it and try to select a portion of text. If you can then the pdf is readable.

If you need the PDF itself to be a link:

If the PDF is already a BLOX asset, then find it on the front end, right click on the thumbnail image on the page and Copy image URL. You are copying the URL of the thumbnail, not the pdf. You cannot do this with the pdf itself.

You can turn the pdf into a .jpg, and store it in your /app folder. You will need to FTP the image to /app. If you do not have your FTP credentials please contact Customer Service.

If you used step 1a…create an html asset with the following code:

<a href="http://www.townnews.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://jhaller.BLOXcms.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/4/40/44079010-294b-11e4-bf56-001a4bcf887a/542b6e48f24ee.preview.jpg"></a>

Change http://www.townnews.com to the link you want to point at.

Change http://jhaller.BLOXcms.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/4/40/44079010-294b-11e4-bf56-001a4bcf887a/542b6e48f24ee.preview.jpg to the URL you get in step 1a.

If you used step 1b… create an html asset with the following code:

<a href="http://www.townnews.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://jhaller.BLOXcms.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/4/40/44079010-294b-11e4-bf56-001a4bcf887a/542b6e48f24ee.preview.jpg"></a>

Change http://www.townnews.com to the link you want to point at.

Change http://jhaller.BLOXcms.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/4/40/44079010-294b-11e4-bf56-001a4bcf887a/542b6e48f24ee.preview.jpg to http://your_domain.com/app/subfolder_name/filename.jpg where your_domain.com is the actual domain of your website, subfolder_name is the name of any folder within /app where you put the file, and filename.jpg is the actual name and extension of your file.

Create an html asset with the above edited code. Assign it to a section like you would any other asset.
