Hi,
I would like to insert a link at the bottom of some of my pages to download reports I have made as a PDF file, can anyone advise how to insert a link style that can be used with a PDF image icon before the words 'Download Report Here'.
I'm sure its simple but have been away for a while and trying to find my feet again !!!!

Many Thanks,
Nick C ;-)

Use the little icon you have as a background image for the link:
a.pdf { background: url(pdficon.gif) no-repeat left center; padding-left: 20px;}

Ah, that example of using a file extension selector was pretty cool!

Hi All,
I'm struggling with this and shouldnt be, I have opted for using the image a s a background image, I have used a small icon for the pdf link, I have then created a style (.pdfDwnload) and linked to the image, repeat= no repeat, Horizontal Position= Left, Vertical Position= Center, and in the Box Category= Padding Left 20 Pixels, is this correct ?
I dont see the image before my link, any ideas , something simple I'm sure ???

Thanks, Nick C:confused:
P.S. Think it may have to do with the style being superseeded by another style in site ?

Code or (even better) link please.
Your style might be canceled by other styles, but there is no way we can guess this, or what might be wrong with the code we cannot see.

If you have web space, just put in inside a temporary directory.
