Linking PDFs and other media

Working with resource links

Linking to files with the WYSIWYG content editor

  1. First, upload your file that you want to make available via the Media tab in Ekklesia 360.
  2. In the WYSIWYG content editor (in pages, articles, sermons, etc.), write a piece of text or insert an image that will serve as the link (ie: "Click here for... ").
  3. Highlight this text with your cursor and click the Link (chain) icon.
  4. In the dialogue box, you have the option to select an item in the Link List (Article, Page, Event) or select a Document by selecting the Folder and Magnifying Glass icon.
    Please Note: you can also Upload new files from this icon as well

Getting a specific media item URL

To get the URL of a specific media item, open the media item by visiting Media > Media > [Media name]. The file's URL will be available there for you to copy (with Ctrl/Cmd + C) and paste (with Ctrl/Cmd + V). This is generally for copying and pasting a link to a file elsewhere online.

Browser behavior when downloading files

Different web browsers may treat links to various file types in different ways. For instance, when clicking on a link to a PDF document, the browser may either download the document to the computer's "downloads" folder, or attempt to open it in the browser itself.

Embedding media

If you need to make a media item useable inside a webpage itself (embedding), you may need to use a player or a special embed method, depending on the type of media you're working with.
