How to post files like word docs, PDFs etc., in 'Blog'

Post files in 'BLOG'

First Step:

Create a Google account and log in to Google drive by www.google.com/drive


In that create a new post and upload the desired document

Step 1:

Step 2:

Select the file and right click on it, next share it, then in the advanced settings of share make it visible to everyone and a link will be displayed as shown in the figure




Step 3:

Copy the below given link and paste it somewhere

 https://docs.google.com/uc?export=download&id=FILE-ID-GOES-HERE

Example of a drive link id is 

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8CoJ4MouuE0dmVpNU9tcW1lSEk/view?usp=sharing

In the above example  0B8CoJ4MouuE0dmVpNU9tcW1lSEk  is the file ID and replace the FILE-ID-GOES-HERE by the file id

Now the link to be placed in the blog is
https://docs.google.com/uc?export=download&id=0B8CoJ4MouuE0dmVpNU9tcW1lSEk

Then the file will automatically downloaded by the viewer.



Hope you will try this and enjoy!
