You can have a pdf document open as a new window from your existing blue voda page ... you need to upload the pdf document to your directory and link to it via your domain name / the name of the pdf / .pdf (important to apply the link as the document name).

it's a nice idea to also supply a link to the adobe reader for viewers that may end up on your page without this, allowing them to download the adobe reader and then view your document ..

I have done it before by searching the internet for a code but my computer crashed and I lost my instructions how to do it. Thes are two links on my site to show you what I,m talking about. The only difference is
that this is macromedia which is a form of pdf file. If I could know how I put thess on, I can do it with a regular pdf file.

They are using I-Frames, you could do the same but load times may be an issue. Insert the I-Frame on your page, double click and insert the Url of the pdf file (you will have to upload it to your c-panel if you have not already)
