This article is about the original Webnode editor. If your site was created in the new editor, you can go to the new article How to Add a File.

2. Now you have created a text box where you can place the file for download. Click on "Edit Content" in the black menu bar.

 3. The "Text and Images" window will open. Put the cursor where you want to insert the file and click on the "+ Insert" button and choose "Insert File".
