QUESTION Add PDF File Links
#1
Hey, just a short and simple question. I didn't find any information regarding this. What's the easiest way to add/link previously uploaded PDF files to a page in getsimple?

To be more precise..
I have a download page. There are four categories and users are able to get additional information by viewing/downloading PDF files. Any suggestions? Smile

I can choose link type URL and browse the server and link my PDF, but then the displayed name for the linked PDF is the complete URL link. Or am I missing something?

Yeah that is how ckeditor link works, there have been requests to modify this behavior
I even tried to workaround it, but ckeditor is a pita, and I gave up.

Haha ok :/ I should check Git more often. Thanks for your reply.
Workaround is to switch to source code and change name of the <a> tag, but im not quite sure if my client who does not have any technical background is able to do this. It's not comfortable also. But it's safe to link files from the upload folder that way, right?

Maybe I'm going to write a little script that automatically changes title of the link. Let's seeā€¦
