Drupal: Link to an Uploaded Document on a Page

The following instructions are for websites using the default UMN Drupal Enterprise or Drupal Lite configuration. 

Drupal is highly customizable, and your site may have different steps for completing the task. Additionally, your role in Drupal may not have access to this tool. Contact your site administrator for additional information.

  1. Place your cursor in the content field where you want the document to display.
  2. Select the Insert Media icon in the HTML Editor toolbar.
  3. Select Document in the left navigation tab. The main palette will display two areas:
    • The upper area allows for uploading documents. The allowed file types are displayed below the Add File box.
    • The lower area allows for searching previously uploaded documents. 
  4. Use the filters to locate the document you wish to display.
  5. Select the document you wish to display and click Insert Checked.
  6. Select Link on the toolbar in the inserted media. A dialog window appears where you can select the formatting of the link.
  7. Select Save.
