22 Oct How to Link a PDF File in an Article
First, RENAME THE FILE. You don’t need to upload files like “Bylaws as amended 2017.pdf”. Before you upload them change their name to a simple, one-word, easy to remember name like “bylaws.pdf” Why?
Assuming the file is replacing a previously linked file of the same name, when you upload (see below) the updated file, it will just replace the previous one on the website, and you’re done.

*REMEMBER: Give your uploaded PDFs a generic file name like “ApplicationForm.pdf” instead of “Application Form for 2014 dated 1-15-2014.pdf” so you don’t have to change the LINK every year, just upload the new file, remaned to be the same as the old (generic) name and the old, existing link will not need to be changed; it will find the most recent copy with the same name. Linked files’ names are case-sensitive!
