Link to an image or document (PDF, MS Word etc)

Images and documents can be inserted into your joomla articles and items. It is very easy to upload them from your computer and store them on your website server.

A link to an image or document (hyperlink) may be inserted into an Item as follows:

  1. Open the Item you wish to add an image or document link to:
    K2 > Items > selected Item
  2. Locate and highlight the text or image you wish to use as the link.
  3. Select the Insert/edit link button on the JC Editor.

  4. Select the Browse button and double-click to open existing folder or create new folder by selecting add new folder button to place image or document into.

  5. Select the Upload button and Add to browse for your image or document.

  6. Select your image or document then click Upload then Cancel.

  7. The image or document link will now be displayed in the Item text.


* Clicking the Cancel button closes the screen without inserting a link.
