Display / Link To PDF

Hi, i have just finished building a new website (wordpress), and i have a very strange problem linking to a PDF file.

I've uploaded a pdf file to my website - http://goo.gl/tNxXYc - however when i enter the direct url in my browser it says that the page cannot be found, instead of showing the pdf.

Can anyone suggest what the problem might be? I've tried several different pdfs and copied the direct link from the media folder, but none of them work.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

Thanks guys. I have copied the link directly from the Media section.

I first tried inserting it into my page via Add Media, and when i noticed that it didn't work, i then copied the link from the Media section and pasted it directly into my browser.

Any other suggestions? Thanks again for your help.
Can you post the link here (directly from your Media section page) please.

This is the exact link as copied from the Media bank section - https://www.grasshopperlanguagecentre.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/hello.pdf
Has it actually been uploaded?

I'm out of ideas, if it has.
You still didn't tell us if you see the file exactly in that folder through FTP

This is really strange... no it is not in that folder... there are actually no files in the 'uploads/2014/11/' folder...

Any ideas?
In the sample screenshot above, it says "Uploaded" three times - does yours?

I'm not sure where you are seeing "Uploaded" three times.

Here is a screenshot from my Media section.

Curious to know if the file is even there (somewhere in a folder, any folder). Can you use Filezilla client to connect through FTP, then on the keyboard press F3, then behind Filename contains, fill in hello.pdf and press search.
From your screenshot from your Media section above, there is NO filesize - methinks therein lies the error!

Open the file directly on your PC before uploading to see what is in hello.pdf!
Here is what I see. Also, if you click on View attachment page, at the bottom, you should see a page with the embedded link!User generated image
