Add the component to the page. There is one, un-named tab.
For common formats, an icon will automatically be added in front of the filename (doc/x, ppt/x, txt, xls/x, pdf, jpg, gif). See examples in the right sidebar.
For files that are located in the UBCMS, their size will also be provided, in parentheses after the filename.
The component automatically identifies your file format and adds a suitable icon and text for screen readers. It also shows the file size!
Please do not embed files larger than 50MB in size.
Link text: Label the file download link. Leave the field blank to use the file's name; e.g. 'Org-Chart.pdf.'
File Location: Choose between 'UBCMS file' and 'External link.'
For a UBCMS file, select the file you wish to be downloaded. UBCMS files can be uploaded just to the current page, but for site maintenance purposes, it is often better to put them in the Digital Asset Manager (DAM) first, then pull them onto the page.
For an External link, a new field appears.
External link: Provide the complete URL to your file, including the http:// or https:// prefix; e.g. http://www.example.com/my_document.pdf.
