Can I attach a document to a hub?
I'm doing a tutorial on an Easter project and would like to upload a pdf that readers could print out to use for their own project. Does anyone know if this is possible?
Hello expectgreatthings. If your pdf has been published elsewhere on the web then it cannot be published on hubpages. A way around it, I think, is to write the description of the pdf as a hub and provide a link to the actual document. Readers can then download it away from hubpages, and you will not be penalised for copied content. That's the way I would do it anyway.
As of now, Hubpages only allow you to upload pictures and videos. You can upload somewhere and put a link on any of your hub that related to your topic (Easter Project). Why not start a new hub on Easter Project? We are all waiting to listen you.
I uploaded my PDF file to my personal domain and Hubpages did not accept that at all. So I uploaded it to Google Drive and it works fine on my computer, but not on my phone. I can not view or download the file on my phone. Probably Google issue.
If I understand your question correctly, you’ve written a hub and also have it saved as a PDF document and you want to know how to attach the PDF document to your hub so your readers can print it off. correct?
I haven’t been here long, yet I’m quite sure that only video and picture modules can be added to hubs. However, just link the PDF document to Microsoft Skydrive and your hub reader will be able to view and download it from there.
The below link demonstrates Skydrive’s PDF viewing capability.

Not a perfect solution, but it works.
I've been thinking about how to add print-off things to my Hubs too. One idea I've had besides giving a link to some other publication site is to take a photo or scan of the document and load it up as a photo image. That way, people can copy it and use it. In addition, it will then be on Google images which can give you more traffic. Of course that won't work for a PDF, but if you print and then scan it, you probably can make it work. I don't know if you can save a PDF into a JPEG file or not, if so, that might work too. I defintely think there is value in keeping people on your Hub. Don't forget to add the proper attribution so people can print off and share your information (assuming it was created by you). Use: Your Hub Name, CC-BY, via HubPages. That means people can use it, share it and alter it.
Screen shots could get the job done. Glad to see this topic mentioned. Thanks for helpful input on it.
I agree! Great idea! I've seen other sites with the ability to attach printables so maybe hubpages will add a new capsule at some point too. I don't really understand the CC-BY rules. Can I just put that on any image I am allowing others to use?
