    So I have a client who runs a local newspaper I am throwing together a Wordpress site(s) for.

    He has a competitor doing things he likes and want to replicate what they do. One thing I am stuck on is the competitor has an option in the sidebar to pull down a full print edition of their newspaper in .pdf format. I looked at the source code of the competitor and this is what I see
    Code:
    </div> </form>  <script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.google.com/coop/cse/brand?form=cse-search-box&lang=en"></script></div> 		</div><div class="side-widget"><h2>Full Print Edition</h2>			<div class="textwidget"><br> <a href="http://www.theotherguyssite.com/wp-content/uploads/theotherguyssite .pdf"> <img src="http://www.theotherguyssite l.com/wp-content/uploads/full_print.jpg"> </a>  <br><br></div> 		</div>
    so it looks like I just upload the .pdf somewhere on WP? How do I make the picture of the .pdf and make it a clickable download?

    Any help would be appreciated.
