I would like to know how to do it, as well. The easiest solution I found: to make a screen shot and download it is a picture.

I would say to load it to your website and include a link in your AR blog.  That's the only thing I can think of.

I use the built in free Snipping Tool on Windows. It turns it into a Tif or jpeg file. and uploads cleaner than a screen shot (because you can crop it).

I did a quickie here with my 20/20 for 2020 goal pdf.

I know that Bob Stewart does this occasionally, dont remember the app but he may, personally I would prefer that people did not upload these like this, better to just have a download link from dropbox or something like that.

Or better yet skip the pdf altogether and just include the information.

The quickest way is to save it as a jpeg either in a word program or through a screen shot on your computer or phone.

Here is the post Brad did on this subject a while ago:

I believe this should still work.

Evelyn Johnston If it is an attachment, a direct link works. It you want to embed it into the post, I believe you can only do it as a photo (jpg) file.

If it's my pdf, I upload the pdf to an external site I have that generates a url and then provide a link to that url in my post. Otherwise, if it's a pdf that I can convert to a jpg as picture, I do that.

 Good Monday morning Evelyn. I do not think that active right has that capacity. Uploaded to your WordPress site and then link it back to active rain.

I suggest you upload the PDF to another site and simply link to it.
