Post PDF

Is there a way that I can post a PDF on my website other than using the file element and just showing a download button?

Thank you!

You can always post a jpg or screen shot of your document and link the PICTURE of it to the file, so when they click on it to make it bigger, it just looks like it is "opening" for them.

Yep, this is exactly what I would suggest.

Oooooo that is a good idea. Thank you.

Now, can Homestead host the file, or do I need to host it somewhere else?

You can upload the pdf document file and it goes into the documents folder.  I am not 100% sure if you can just upload the file first and link to it, or if you have put some words or something in there first and THEN upload the file. It's been awhile. Let me go look and I will get right back to you.

Go to the Elements menu, choose FILES, click on the "document" choice. That opens the folder.  It is there you can upload the pdf file.  Then you can link your "fake" pdf to the actual file.
