You can add many different types of files to a new post. For example, you can add news about an event and attach a PDF about the event. You may be sharing a PDF product catalog with new introductions. You can also add a Word document (.doc) or an Excel file (.xls).
To share news with a PDF, Word, or Excel file, please:
- Log in to your Shop Local account.
- When you login, you will automatically be taken to your Dashboard. Click on "Home.". This will take your to your Home page, where you can share news. On your Home page in the field that says "Share..." enter the text (news) you'd like to share.
- Below this field, there is an "Advanced Settings" link. Click this. More options will appear.
There is text that says "Share PDF, Excel, etc.:" Next to this text is, click the "Browse" button. You can then choose the file (e.g. PDF) that you'd like to share. On a Windows machine, you may need to click 'Open' to select the file.
- After you successfully select the file, please click on the green "Share" button. Our software will post your news and show your file.
Shop Local also offers a Library area. This is different than the news area. Library is for sharing files that may be continually referenced.
