I am trying to download a pdf on my website.
What is a text link?
How do you get a url for my pdf?
Thanks for your help.

When you say 'download a pdf on my website' does it mean that your
form will contain a link that would allow users to download the pdf file
without submiting data yet?
In this case you can make use of the Free Text (HTML) to create
a link to the PDF file. A Text Link is simply a text/line which has reference
to another site/file. When somebody clicks on it they will be redirected to
the targeted site/file. The url for the pdf is the address where you have
stored the pdf file. For users to access the file it has to be saved in a
webspace that can be accessed by everyone, there are several free file hosting
available such as mediafire. You can upload the pdf file on a free file
host then get the url to the file.
1. Open your form in JotForm
2. From the Power tools on the left menu choose Free Text (HTML)
3. Click on 'Edit HTML" in the Free Text field
4. Type the text link in the Free text box
5. Highlight the text and click on the chain (link) icon
in the free text field.
6. A pop up window will be displayed, you will need to enter the url to your PDF file.
