Option to Add Attachments

I would really like the option to add an attachment option in the text on the campaign landing page and fundraisers landing page. This would really be helpful for me because there's sometimes I'd like to add additional details or instructions to something that don't necessarily need to be on the main page. Only those that are wanting the extra instructions can download it. Please make this change! Thank you!

    Hi there and thanks for the suggestion. In a way this is already possible if you add an HTML link to your campaign description. Behind that link could be the downloadable file/document you want the supporter to get.

    Thanks Jamie, that'd be great. Can you tell me how to do that? Because when I reached out to your chat support, they told me there was no way to do it...this, they suggested I put the idea on here. Thank you!

    Hi,

    Sorry to hear that that was not suggested. In short I'd recommend the following:

    1. Create your campaign

    2. On the edit story section, you'll see a rich text editor that allows you to add hyperlinks

    3. Where you want to add a download link, ensure that the hyperlink takes the user to a URL that instigates the download. If you use something like Dropbox or Google Docs to host the file you want people to download you should be able to retrieve the necessary link to embed/paste.

    4. Click save

    5. Publish campaign

    As an example, test this link

    The following page lets you convert Google Doc, Sheet and Dropbox links into downloadable links

    Or there is simple advice on how to create your own downloadable link from a simple url

    The Plain Download Attribute

    The simplest way to use the Download Attribute is to just include it in its most basic form in your anchor tags. You don't need to include an additional file name or any supporting information. The result looks like this:

    <a href="/path/to/download.pdf" download>Download Now!</a>
