Add PDF to Product
« on: October 15, 2019, 16:18:57 pm »
Is there any way that I can add an INSTRUCTION (in PDF format) to the product page?

I tried creating a custom field but that did not work.

ideally I would like to have a tab next to description that says SETUP INSTRUCTIONS with a PDF icon that links to the PDF.

Does anyone know if this can be done?

tab is up to you .. plenty of examples on google

pdf  .. just a string custom field for the file name and do the linking in the template after "extracting" that string .. normally by using the custom field position
