i pretty much just started messing around with html not too long ago. and i am building a web page that has a page that is dedicated for downloading books in .pdf files and other files. the thing is i want to set this up so that all a person has to do is click on the image specified for the book, and have a prompt come up asking to 'save file'. is there a certain script i need to put in for that?? please help thanks.
This is what I found:
-Make a link to the pdf
-When the user clicks on it, it will automatically open up Adobe Reader (you may want to put a link to that website as a courtesy in case they dont have it)
-From there they can print it themselves.
I also found this a while back:
) How to add a "print this page" button to a web site:
2) How to add a "print this page" button in a pdf file:
A little more complicated, but it can be done if you have the full version of Acrobat (not Reader). Go to Menu Tools->Advanced Editing->Link Tool. Draw a square on the page. Select "custom link" and hit OK. Click to the Actions tab and select "Execute menu item" from the actions pop-up. Follow the instructions and select the "Print..." menu.
Now just add a graphic or the text "Print this page" where you drew the link.
Good luck. I hope it helps!
