Andrew (or Chez or anyone else who knows what they are doing)

Here is the page I am trying to update.

http://www.torringtoncommon.co.uk/history.htm

You will see that right at the bottom there is a link that doesn't work.

I have a PDF of the document I want to link to.

I don't want a thumbnail as it's just a boring legal document.

I am editing in Notepad and uploading using Filezilla.

Do I have to upload the PDF somehow?

Right, two possible problems. Firstly your HTML is a bit confused. You have:-

Code:
<a href="GT_Commons_Act.pdf"><img  alt="Great Torrington Commons Act 1889  Please click for printable version" </a>
</div>


Change it to this:-

Code:
<a href="GT_Commons_Act.pdf">Great Torrington Commons Act 1889  Please click for printable version</a>


i.e. ditching the incorrect <img> (I'm assuming the link should just be text), and also ditching the stray </div>

Secondly, check that the 'root' of your website (i.e. where the home page is), does actually contain the file GT_Commons_Act.pdf. If it doesn't, change the href to point to the right folder where the PDF is stored, e.g.:-

Code:
<a href="/somefolder/GT_Commons_Act.pdf">Great Torrington Commons Act 1889  Please click for printable version</a>


Give those suggestions a whirl

Hurrah! I think that works. It's a big PDF so it takes a while, but it gets there!

Thank you Andrew xxx
