News articles to have downloadable attachments
Can we have the ability to have downloadable attachments (pdf,doc etc) to News articles as well as the ability to add images please
Great News, you can now attach documents to club and team news items.

It's a real shame that you can't do the same for league news! Why not?

In the Documents section of our website (Merthyr Schools Rugby Union) I have added a Word document listing the various ways to use code which allows hyperlinks to work in news articles. Check it out and download it if it helps.

great idea - especially as the notes for the 38 brews on sale at out beer festival came as a pdf, and I don't fancy typing them up for the news page! I've added the pdf into the documents section and added a hyperlink, but it's not the same as having the pdf appear onscreen. Am i right that jpgs can be added at present, so it shouldn't be too hard to add pdfs...

YEAH GREAT FOR CLUB FORMS AND VENUE DIRECTIONS/MAPS ALSO

Alessio have tried your workaround, not really any help.
I cannot get it to create a hyperlink just the address that they have to copy and paste into browser
Tony McClure commented
This would make circulating items a lot easier instead of having to create a hyperlink

Thanks to Alessio Pagliano - great soluion to a very annoying problem!!
Ian McMahon commented
Would be really handy for my match reports as well as news articles where users can download uploaded documents. .pdf .doc .xls would cover most documents. Thx
Alessio Pagliano commented
Are you using a workaround for this one? I might give it a try in a very short while as I will need to do something about this as well but I'm pretty sure I will be happy with what's available at the moment.
What I'm thinking in my mind is to :
1) Add a new document/brief intro under documents
2) Look at the result under the documents section (check/verify it's been enabled first)
Point the mouse over the download icon, right click, properties and take note of the URL
Use this link on the article you need...if you can use HTML on the articles than you can recreate exactly what you need, if not use the URL
I hope this helps
