Attaching Other Files to Your Post

Pictures aren’t the only type of file you can put in a post. Word-
Press.com lets you embed a number of other types of document,
including PDFs, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets,
and PowerPoint presentations. In a self-hosted site, you face
no restrictions, so you can upload any type of file you want.
The difference is what happens after you upload the file. Unlike
a picture, you won’t see the content from other types of
documents in your post. Instead, WordPress adds an ordinary
link that points to the uploaded file. If a reader clicks the link,
the browser may display the document or offer to download
it—what it does depends on whether the browser has an add-in
that can display that type of file. For example, many browsers
have add-ins that display PDF documents.
