    When I follow these instruction and click on Add + media + document, a screen pops up that says "my documents" however, there is no button within that box that says "upload documents."  So, it's literally impossible for me to upload any documents since the "upload documents" button is missing.  Please help!!

    How can I take care of this with HTML if it is a real big EBook?  I need them to be able to flip through the pages and jump pages... although that would be a good idea as it will be much clearer...

      Unfortunately we do not provide support for using exterior html code. Perhaps others on the forum will answer or you can look online for such an html code.

    Is there any way when viewing documents such as a PDF, that the URL still shows our domain instead of https://media.wix.com ?    It would be more professional to have folder/directory off our domain such as www.example.com/pages/my.pdf

      Hello,

       

      Documents that are uploaded through the Editor are uploaded to the Wix server via the subdomain that you have mentioned. It is not possible for the URL to display a different address.

       

      If it is crucial that the Wix address does not appear, you can upload the PDF file using an external hosting service ,or use the Google Drive or Dropbox applications.

      Hi,

      Unfortunately, this feature is not available yet however, you can try the following workaround:

      1. You can save the document pages as images.

      2. Add a slideshow gallery to your site.

      3. Add the document images to the slideshow.

       

      This way your visitors will be able to slide (flip) through the document pages.

       

      You can save the document pages as images using the screen shot option.

      You can find step by step instructions here .

       

      To add a gallery to your site, simply follow these steps:

      1. From the left side of the Editor, click the plus sign to open Add.

      2. From Add, click Gallery and choose a gallery.

      A gallery appears in your editor.
      You can find more information here

      Please consider embedding the document as a PDF in your site by using the HTML App, or use the Google Drive App to share your Google Drive content directly on your Wix site. Click here for more information.

       

      With the HTML App you can test and add your own HTML code to your Wix site.

    PDF Document

    Hi,

    I have a PDF document with around 126 pages that I need to upload to my wix site.  I just put up "Simple Booklet" but I feel that it is too stiff and not easily readable.  It also doesn't work for my mobile view.  Is there anything that can be more flexible and easily readable?

    I just put a few documents on my website for my customers to download. I have my wix site though my own domain. My question is when they click on the document to download it It opens a new window that says the entire wix.com address. Is there a way to hide that?
