How to Add a PDF Download for Posts in WordPress

Adding a PDF download link to posts in WordPress is a great way to provide content to your readers in an easy-to-access format. You can use a PDF download link to share documents, images, or other types of files with your readers. In this article, we will show you how to easily add a PDF download for posts in WordPress.

Step 1: Create Your PDF File

Before you can add a link to download a PDF file in WordPress, you will need to create the PDF itself. If you already have a PDF file that you want to use, you can skip this step. Otherwise, you will need to use a PDF creator, such as PDFFiller, to create a PDF file from scratch.

Step 2: Upload the PDF File to WordPress

Now that you have a PDF file, you will need to upload it to WordPress. To do this, go to your WordPress dashboard and navigate to Media > Add New. On the “Add New” page, you will see an option to upload your file. Once the file is uploaded, click the “Edit” link to view the file’s details and copy its URL.

Step 3: Add the PDF Download Link to Your Post

Now that you have the PDF file uploaded to WordPress and the URL copied, it’s time to add the PDF download link to your post. Open the post editor, switch to the Text editor, and paste the following code:

Download PDF

Replace “URL-HERE” with the URL of the PDF file you uploaded to WordPress (from Step 2). If you want, you can also change the text “Download PDF” to something else. For example, “Download My PDF.”

Once you are done, click the “Publish” button to save your changes. You should now see a link to download the PDF in your post.


That’s it! You have successfully added a PDF download for posts in WordPress. You can easily repeat this process for any other PDFs that you want to add to posts in the future. If you run into any issues, feel free to leave a comment below.
