Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

    You'll have to be more specific.

    If you have the document that is accessible from the web, I would think that you could just put a html link to that. It should then prompt the user to download it to the desktop.

    So if it is just a word .doc that you have on the server and you want people to be able to download it by "clicking here" all you would have to do is put the link in to where it lives on the server and the people will be prompted to download it?

    Pretty much.
    There's no need to make anything more elaborate.
