I am in SF 7.0 and I want a navigation menu item to only go to a PDF and not to a page on the site.
Here is the test site.
In the left side nav under Resources, I have a sub-menu item called Product Guide PDF. I want this to open up a PDF in the new browser window when clicked on.
How does one accomplish that?
Come on guys. I know this has to be fairly simple for you expert SF guys.
Please help me out.
You'll need to create a page redirect in your sitemap. Here's a link to the documentation.
If you would like to see this in action, I created a short video for you. Check it out on YouTube. http://youtu.be/TjE45lJOih8
Oh Tim, you are the man. I knew it had to be simple. I looked at that part last week but saw that it wanted a web address and did not think of just putting the path to the PDF.
Thank you Sir!!
Please bump Nikola's explaination. The other route mentioned above will break if the document is moved. Much more reliable to use Sitefinity's auto url maintainer.
But I'd like to make a suggestion, could we have the link to be,.. 1) page from this site 2) url to an external site and then a 3rd item? 3) document from this site? Would be nice not having to do the custom widget but that is necessary currently.
