Ok here is what I want to do. I am using Microsoft Office Live Small Business to do a personal website. I have a resume page right now. On that page, i have an image of my Resume uploaded as a .bmp image. I also have a link saying Click to Download Resume. Once that is clicked, it sends you to drop.io where you have to click another link to actually download it. What I really want to do is I want to have a link where anyone can click on and then it is gonna display my resume in a PDF format without having to go to that other site to download the resume from the drop.io site. It really doesn't matter if it appears in the same page or not. Can anyone help me out with that as to how to do it or what site can i use or whatever????

Hi there, I am just learning myself but I'll try and help you... I am not familiar with how to do a website using small business, but I do know the code to use:

If you have a code section, insert this code into your webpage, just change the items in bold to the name of the resume file and the name of the picture that you want ppl to click. Make sure you leave the " " on either side of the file names, using this code, the people will be directed straight from your site to the pdf resume and NOT go through that other site :)

When you insert the file name, (you have to upload your resume to the server where your website is stored) when you insert the file name, make sure you include the folder name if the file is inside a folder, for example: "documents/resume.pdf"

<p>Click to view or download a resume, simply click on the picture [Resume is in .PDF format]</p>
<a href="INSERT RESUME FILE NAME HERE.PDF"><img src="INSERT PICTURE FILE NAME HERE.BMP" width="153" height="202"

Hope that helps!

I would recommend changing your .bmp image to a more web safe image which is not so large in file size. A good jpg or png. If your resume is in a pdf format, then all you need to do is make a direct link to it. Most browsers know what program to associate with a pdf file, but it is always a good idea to provide a link and statement that to view your resume requires use of Adobe's Reader.

<a href="resume.pdf" title="Download My Resume"><img style="width: XXpx; height: YYpx; border: 0;"  src="pdf_image.png" alt="My Resume" /></a>
If you are not coding to an XHTML DocType, remove the space and the "/" in the image tag.
