How do I embed and display a PDF?

Recommended Posts

I have searched and tried many options to upload and display and PDF on Squarespace and nothing works for me. I get the part on how to upload the pdf into Squarespace (add a text, link, upload file) and then everyone says the file is in /s/myfile.pdf

Then, I don't know what to do. Some use a code, others CSS but I can't get it right either way.. I don't know code and I'm stuck on how to display it. I don't the link to open a new window with the pdf, or download it. I want to see it on my website

Thank you for your help!

Hy,

Pdf's can't be displayed as regular graphics. if you already have the file uploaded, just create a button, text-link, graphic....then use the link function (clickthrough-url for images, link icon for text) and select the regarding file.+ select OPEN IN A NEW TAB

if that is not what you need, please describe it a bit more detailed with a link to the regarding site
