Six months ago, I asked about changing websitebuilder to allow .pdf files to open in new browser window instead of visitors having to download document. I don't see that an update has been made yet. Does anyone have a timeframe or know if it is still being worked on or considered?

It is a question of how the servers work, not the builder. It is still being looked at. I have found that some pdf readers do open the pdf. I use Adobe Reader and they always open. Maybe your reader has a setting.

Ok. I will take another look at your site shortly and see if I can determine the issue.

Check your forms page. I placed a link there that says Test near the bottom right. It opens.
I do not know why or what happened, but I had to actually upload the pdf again. I gave it a new name.

Sorry for the late response. Yes, your Test link worked on my Forms page. So I kept playing with it. Finally got it to work by completely uploading a pdf again, deleting the original link then relinking the text to the newly uploaded pdf. A lot of work ahead of me; but thank you for your help.

You're welcome. I am glad we got it. I am sorry this is necessary, and I will try to figure that out, but at least now it works.
