In this course, author James Fritz shows how to create HTML-based websites with Muse—a toolset familiar to anyone who has used Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, or Illustrator. The course covers the design process from start to finish, from setting up web pages and populating them with graphics and text, to creating dynamic menus and adding special features such as widgets, slideshows, animations, embedded video, social media integration, and more. James also explains how to create an alternate layout for display on mobile devices, publish and update your site, and view analytics on web traffic.
Adding images and text to your website is a fairly straightforward process, but what if you want to add another type of file, like a PDF or a Word document? To do this, we need to add a downloadable asset. Let's go to the About Us page. On this page if we scroll down, you can see that we have a PDF icon. Let's select this PDF icon, and if we want someone to be able to download a PDF brochure or another type file, we need to have that file on our website and link to it. We can do this by going to the File menu and choosing Add Files for Upload.
When we choose this option the Import dialog will appear. Inside our Assets folder, we're going to find brochure.pdf. When I select this it will be added to our Assets folder. In fact, if I scroll down here, we'll be able to find it. Here it is, and you can see that there is a little paperclip and an Arrow icon next to it. That signifies that this file will be uploaded automatically to our server when we publish our site. Another way to do this is to go to the Hyperlink menu and choose Link to File.
This will also open the import dialog. But in our case here, we're going to leave at brochure.pdf. Now that we have this set up, let's preview this in a web browser. I'm going to go to File > Preview Page in Browser. I'm inside Safari, and if I click on this link, it'll automatically open the PDF in the web browser. If you're using a different web browser, it might download the PDF and open up in another application like Preview or Adobe Reader. Adding downloadable content is a great way to share files on your website. PDFs, zip files, or even Muse files themselves are all different uses of downloadable content.
