Offering files for download

Postby olle on Tue Apr 28, 2020 2:47 am

I wonder, if it is possible, to include files for download in a topic? This file should not be shown with it's content (it's an other file format, it's not included in the file fomat list list, when you choose to insert images or multimedia files).
Cheers
Oliver

What happens if you put the file in the folder you want using file explorer, and just create a link to it? (For ease, I think I'd include the file in the same folder as the topic I was linking from, so I didn't have to worry about whether the relative path was created correctly.)

Thank You, this works!
But is this the official way to do that?
I ask, because, I want to be sure, that this will still works in 5 years.....

Absolutely - if you read the Help Topic on Text Links carefully you'll see that you can basically link to any sort of file.

If the file is not stored in your main project (e.g. somewhere on a web server) you might want to use an external link:
