This document will walk you through adding documents (.pdf, .doc, etc.) to your site using the Document Page menu.
The Document Page in the left hand column of your main WordPress administrator screen allows you to create pages for specific documents, as well as categorize them.
The intent is to showcase a specific document (e.g. project charter, department mission statement) or set of Document Types (e.g. meeting minutes) for easy download or linking. When there is not a need to showcase or categorize, you can always just add documents as links in Text Blocks: WiscWeb - WordPress UW Theme - Text Block Page Element
Document Types allow you to categorize your Document Pages and use those Document Types to control what displays on any given page. For example, if you wanted a page with meeting minutes, you could create Document Pages with those meeting minute documents, add the Document Type "meeting minutes" to all of them, and then add the Document Type "meeting minutes" to a menu and all of those meeting minutes would display on one page. See (link to doc) for an example.
Categories are an option listed for Document Pages, but we do not recommend you use them. Please use the Document Types, as they fulfill the same purpose as Categories for Document Pages and are more thoroughly tested.
