Adding Your Print Edition as a PDF
There are many services out there that allow you to create 'flipbooks' of your print edition (thank you Google search!). Most of them will charge a fee, as it costs money for them to store your large PDF's on their sites. That said, you may be able to find a few free service options out there.
One such option is Yumpu, which (for now) has a free option. For any of these services, once you create an account with them and upload your PDF's, they'll provide you with an embed code, which you can then paste back on your SNO site in a SNO Text/Embed widget on your homepage or within a story or page using the TEXT tab.
The most popular service for creating embeddable flipbooks for your print edition has historically been Issuu.com. Issuu will let you store PDF's on their site, but will charge you to share them using embed codes, which is the primary manner in which to share your PDF's to your website so they are viewable and interactive. That said, we have seen some schools use creative ways to maintain their free service with Issuu, while still finding ways to share them to their SNO site (see below). The instructions for using Issuu are similar to any other service -- Create a free or paid account and upload your PDF to their site. They will then provide you with an embed code that you can add to your site. Paste your embed code in a SNO Text widget or a SNO Video Embed widget on your homepage or in a page or story page using the TEXT tab.

How to Add a Downloadable PDF
To add a PDF to your site, upload it like you would any other image. Then, after it uploads, click the File URL button (you’ll need to scroll down a little to see this). Copy the URL of your uploaded document. Then return to your main text editor. Highlight the word/words you want to link the PDF to. Click the link icon just above the text-editing window. Paste the URL of your uploaded document in the URL box. Click Insert.
Another option is to take a screenshot of the PDF or use another image entirely and hyperlink that image to your PDF's URL. To do so, upload your image or images to your story and then click on them to get to the edit-image page. Change the 'Link To' action to Custom URL. Once you do that, paste the URL to your PDF and click Update. Your image should now redirect to the PDF rather than opening up in an overlay.
Please submit a support ticket if your PDF is larger than 15 MB, as it will need to be uploaded via FTP.
