I was trying to have zipped ebooks that you can download from my site. I opened up BlueFTP and I created a new folder and then uploaded my files. The problem I have is how how do I link them to my site. Do I put the long ftp address in the link? If so wouldnt people be able to see all my info? And what are the permissions things? I tried looking for videos to help, but could not find any.


Trackbacks???

Hi ..

1. You will need to upload via ftp the file
2. If you have created a folder to upload these to then you will also need to include the name of the folder in the linking
- the link would look like this http://www.yourdomain.com/nameoffolder/nameoffile.pdf
3. you will need to use the exact name of the file along with its extension, if it's a pdf for example
4. On your page, you can use an image or a text link to link to your file ..
