Hello peeps. I am trying to include a “click to download” option for my resumes. Does anyone know if there is a to do this so it will automatically download, or do I have to send people to my dropbox via a link?
Theoretically this should work:
<a href="http://example.com/files/myfile.pdf" target="_blank">Download</a>
The target=_blank will make a new browser window appear before the download starts. That window will usually be closed when the browser discovers that the resource is a file download.
Note that file types known to the browser (e.g. JPG or GIF images) will usually be opened within the browser.
Hope it will help.
