Uploading and Linking to Files in Website Builder v7

NOTE: This article is for Website Builder version 7. Your version displays at the top of the screen when you log in to your Website Builder account. Not using version 7? See, Uploading and Linking to Files in Website Builder v 6.

Website Builder v7 lets you upload your own audio, video, document, and image files, so your website visitors can download them.

There are essentially two methods to upload files to your WSB v7 website. The first option is to simply drag the file from your local drive and drop it on to the design canvas of your chosen page. This creates an editable button for visitors to download the file. The second option is to create a button and link a file to it.
