3. In the Insert/Edit link pop-up, go to the field next to Link URL. Enter the URL as/content/FileName.pdf (replacing FileName.pdf with your actual file name). This is case-sensitive, so make sure you have all capitalization exactly as it is in the file you uploaded into the content folder.

Link to the PDF with HTML To link to your file with HTML, you can use the following code
