Inserting Word/pdf files into CMS screens

Guys,
I have a customer who wants a CMS. He needs to add text as usual but then add form files for visitors to click on and open. You can do this in Dreamweaver and most CMS systems. I can't see how to do it in this one? Any ideas?

Are you talking about an experience where the admin logs into the CMS and can add a link to a PDF document? If so this is not supported by default with Power CMS but it can be done by making some adjustments to the HTML Editor resources that are used in PowerCMS. Here are some links to posts that discuss the steps that you can take to allow this:

Uploading a PDF
showthread.php?p=52355&posted=1#post52355

Allowing banned files

Thanks

Eric, thanks for that. I read the thread and then tried my self. I set up a link to images/test.pdf using protocol 'other'.

I then went to the images icon and under Image Properties/Image Info (NOT the upload tab) browsed for my pdf and uploaded it. If I used the upload tab it said "Invalid File type'.

After uploading OK I tested the page and hey presto the pdf displayed. This works with Word files too!

Am I doing it right or have I found a work around others havent? Please see the test site at www.oxeyes.org!

This looks good to me, there are a few different ways that this can be done based on how the configuration is setup. If you have it working for you in a way that is acceptable then I think your technique is a good one. Thanks for posting back with the details on this, I'm sure that others will find this info helpful.
